Doh. Had my contact preferences for email off, so no free game for me. I really wanted Dragon Age Origins or Spore too :( Fawk.

Anyone know if Bad company has a good online community still? I don't plan on getting any dlc if that makes a difference.

No e-mail. Although not a problem since I already owned DA:O, BF and Spore.

Origin is a ok program. There is nothing wrong with it, but then again it's one of those do we really need another client moments. I use Origin for my EA games because sometimes Origin shafts Steam copies with no updates, and any other website like Amazon only has Origin activated codes.

Bah had my email preference off as well. That's weird because I almost always enable those.

Well according to steam stats as of now, 584 play now and 1299 at the peak. These stats don't include users you play retail/origin versions of the game, so there should more players than that. I not sure how many still play the Vietnam DLC, but you should easily find games for the standard Bad Company 2 maps.

:( Dang I didn't get the email. Hmmm, I thought I was subscribed to their email. I guess thats probably why I never got a birthday email from them either.

Well crap, I had my email preferences off too. I always (well, apparently not always) check the first-party ones. Oh well, I already have Dragon Age: Origins on PS3, would've liked to try Spore out though.

Saw the e-mail. Got Spore since I already have BFBC2 and DA: Origins. Thanks OP!

I have orgin since I bought BF:BC2 for like 19.99 when it came out it was on sale and I found a promo code lol.

I also had mirrors edge and burnout Pardise on it from the codes from steam. If they don't send me a e-mail so I can snag DA:O for free I am seriously boycotting Orgin forever and I will write them a e-mail telling them why.

::update:: Yup, not buying anything off Orgin... EVER. Goodbye ever playing BF3.

I don't know if I missed it on a previous page, but can someone please post the address that the email was sent from?

Awesome! I rarely read the email from Origin, so if I hadn't seen this thread I would have lost out on a free game! I will probably get BF:BC2, but Spore is tempting too...

Thanks, had to look in my spam folder but found it. Have BC2 and Origins so Spore it is.

Where can I check if my email preference was set to off? Maybe if we turn it back on they will send a code? I know, wishful thinking but I really wanted Dragon Age origins.

edit: You have to log into the EA site to change your email preferences. Turned email notifications on. Keeping my fingers crossed that they will still send me a code now.

I had to check this myself also. You can find out your preferences at:


That's for the US by the looks of it. But if you're in another region and it doesn't work, you can go to the Origin website. Then going to the "download origin" page. There is an option there to login. After you login there, you can click on your name and then you can see your account settings under there.

I also didn't have the emails from Origin checked. I wonder if that option wasn't originally presented to me because as others have said, I almost always check the first party communication from people. I even have them checked under my account to come in from EA's main website. But I just don't use Origin that much. The only thing that I have on my account at all under Origin is the BF3 alpha trial.

Sucks that I won't get the free game but oh well. Whatcha gonna do!

Shoot, I had emails turned off too. Checked it now, I'm sure its to late. Got a massive backlog anyways, best game of the bunch looks to be bfbc2, which I have on steam anyways so no big loss either way.

I didn't get one either but that is probably because I never installed the client. I've just bought a few games from their store and had them shipped. Ah well, no lose.

I got an email... and I'm pretty sure the only game I have from them was Mass Effect 2 for buying Dragon Age: Origins.

Anyhow, my code doesn't appear to be working... Not sure if I'll bother to contact EA CS over it or not... I will likely never do anything with said game anyways.

Here's a little horror story for you. On Origin, the promo bar didn't show up for me, apparently you have to "pay" using a credit card and not PayPal so I accidentally bought Dragon Age Origins. Long story short, I'm supposedly being issued a refund but Dragon Age Origins is still in my list of games.

Makes me wonder if it will disappear or if I should get another copy as I already own BFBC2 and that I don't want Spore at all.

I didn't get an email (even checked spam) and I've been with origin since it came out. What the hell.
