I copy / pasted a key into origin and then it completely saturated my pipe for the entire download, 5+mb/s start to finish.

You don't even need to touch origin to play the game, it'll just sit hidden away after launching. I don't get what the whining is about, besides logging in once and setting it to remember after that you basically never have to see it again.
Exactly, people don't need to whine and complain about every little thing, it just makes them look stupid and leads to whining about minor issues....

I much prefer my games on Steam, but I won't boycott Origin. When I'm ready to buy it, I'll do so, Origin or not.
