People were all eating it up and getting on a rage about it, constantly bringing it up in anti Origin threads/discussions.
I did my own digging around and found out that this mod had actually simply exploited a pricing mistake on the website he bought his game from. It was being "sold" for free and it was actually a steamworks game, therefore having absolutely nothing to do with Origin.
When Steam was notified of the keys that were obtained via the exploit, they were cancelled and the games removed from steam.
Yet this mod somehow managed to convince shedloads of people that it was actually Origin that deleted his steamworks
games........doesn't help that this person was pure anti Origin/pro Steam.
Basically what I'm trying to say, is that its pointless to be angry that someone or something may be attempting to fool you, and then go jump on the bandwagon of someone who may also be giving info that doesn't tell the whole truth, or even the truth at all.
I dont see why there is such a lack of will to actually find out just what is happening in specific detail?Edited by GrizzleBoy - 11/4/11 at 4:16pm
