Hey there, @bethadams56.

 

The Origin client is a downloadable program for PC and Mac that helps launch EA games from Peggle to Anthem and more. However, it's not available for mobile / tablets.

So how can people playing Scrabble on a mobile platform add their friends? Poor design...

I am stumped.  This classic game has been monopolized by EA (and Facebook) so as to make it inaccessible to the open market.   Words with Friends is a distasteful, cheaters platform yet thrives because it is accessible; as a word game it pales to the original Scrabble, IMHO. Trump-nomics at play, apparently.  If EA owns the rights, they are the game losers.  Woeful.


Too bad they don’t offer an option to only play other little  flakes of snow Disappointed

So basically, I have to download and install an entire application (Origin client) just to add a friend to play Scrabble against? Why can't this be done online or in-app? For most people this is just too much of a hassle so you're forced to use Facebook (with their horrible reputation for privacy) to connect. What a dumb design.

@bethadams56 It does not appear so. Very odd that it is this difficult to add friends. It took me 30 minutes but finally added a friend. Both have to have origin accounts created using EA credentials on a PC/Mac.

Hi-

 

I'm unable to add EA friends to Scrabble games on the Android app. What is the protocol for creating a new game with an EA/Origins friend? I cannot see any friends in the dropdown menu.

Hey there, @yaminah17.

 

If you create a new game, and select Play With Friends, it should list all of your friends. If you also have Facebook linked, it will display both Facebook and Origin friends in the same list.

 

I hope that helps.

No, it doesn't. As you have acknowledged in other threads, Origin/EA friends have completely disappeared in this last update.

 

The incompetence of EA's programmers and testers (do you even have a separate team who test software before release?) knows no bounds!

I have the same problem.  Origin/EA friends disappeared from the app about 3-4 weeks ago. I’ve quit and restarted the app on both my iPad and iPhone, and rebooted both devices. The app is up to date. They are not listed even though they are listed on the origin website in my account. My brother and I keep rematching each other so we can play a game, and our Guest numbers stay the same so we know who we are. HELP!!

Hi,

 

No this doesn't help. I have no friends to choose from within the Scrabble androif app, even though I have EA friends. The game is totally updated. The below is what it looks like.
