This a million times over, I had an EA account made years ago, signed into EA Download Manager (aka Origin Beta) with it for years. This is not some huge drastic change for many of us.
I know I didn't like when they changed it to Origin. I have no clue why they changed the name, it's the same program with a couple new features added. But, I did not throw a hissy fit over it, I wanted to play the game and it allowed me to simply download it wherever I chose.
Honestly, when Steam started becoming mandated on games I bought retail I did throw a hissy fit, like a little school girl breaking a nail, damn it! It wasn't clearly labeled as such on the box.
