Origin blocked Iranian people and They can't play on Origin

★ Novice

Hi.

Do you know EA blocked Iranian gamer? They can't play FIFA easily.

Why? what's the difference between Iranian people and others?

Does EA explain why?

Thanks.

Thanks.

No, ISP didn't block it. EA blocked it.

@Armin_WallStreet if i search on google it seems that iranian players have been blocked at various times in the past but it was not by EA it was by US sanctions, along with several other nations too.

Maybe this is what is happening now as well. However there has been occasions where there was technical issues with servers and EA needed to fix this also. I hope you get an answer from EA - here are some interesting posts from in the past which may/may not help you until then
