EA support....what a joke

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
so I want to buy the mirror's edge time trials but i bought mirrors edge, before origin was out, through steam. EA did not require a cd key to activate the steam version. EA support keeps asking for a cd key they know doesnt exist...? so to play the dlc I'm guessing i'll have to either steal it or repurchase mirrors edge. what a joke.

Go to the game in your steam library, select the game, on the right under the 'LINKS' list, there should be CD Key.

Nope. No cd key was included with mirrors edge on steam. Nothing under links or properties

Better than the "asdadas" response a lot of people are getting from EA support.

Just curious....what is that?

As far as EA Support goes, did you ask to speak to a supervisor?

Can't find the guys name (he gave it to me in case I needed it again) but the dude stayed on the phone with me for 2 FULL HOURS helping me get Origin working when I bought BF3. And gave me a physical warfare pack code. And sent me 3 BF3 posters for free. All I did was that "Call Me" thing and asked politely to speak to a supervisor.

I wish I could remember the name of this little application that could find every key on your pc and list them for you..? Been years since I used it, though.

Same exact thing happened with me and Crysis Warhead on steam. Said I had run out of activations for the game and to contact EA support. When I explained the situation they said they couldn't do anything without a CD key which I had dig in the registry for because they don't give it to steam and I got 1 more activation out of it. After that I vowed to never buy a EA game that controls your activation limits and what you can and cannot do with your game.

Steam in the other hand...support is horrible

Friday, what a lovely day, right? It’s the end of your working day, the day before weekend, the day when you can finally play your favorite game. Oh, God bless Friday. And what happens when you try to play Battlefield 3? Nothing. Nada. Why? But because Origin is down… or should I say ‘broken’ since you can’t login and even if you do, you get a lovely crash. Oh, and you won’t be able to see the games that you’ve purchased in your account. Lovely. First Ubisoft with their servers issues and now EA. Can it get any better?
Naturally, EA tweeted via tha game’s official account that they are aware of this problem and are investigating it:
