Might be your firewall blocking the connection to certain IPs or something in that line.

There's loads of fanfare around Apex Legends, but I won't install it. I'm fed up of playing with these high pings and getting shot around corners which I have passed a second ago due to my ping being so shit. The fanfare will soon die down when people start realizing it.

Also, this game has been made so popular due to EA taking out big bucks and paid the top streamers to play them as part of their advertising campaign. If the likes of Ninja, Dr.Disrespect, and Shroud didn't play this game this thread wouldn't exist... As soon as their payment term runs out they are gone playing other games and the game will start the decline to its end.

Be honest, have you pirated an origin game since you last installed windows? Could be a crack has blocked some origin/EA servers.

A good question haha...

Honestly, I won't say I've never pirated a game. Back when I was in high school I would get games from friends and install them on my PC and later found out it was cracked games. I didn't have a internet connection and wouldn't have been able to afford the games back then anyway but that was like 10+ years ago. And please, don't think I am promulgating the use of pirated games. The amount of problems you get with pirated games are endless and that's only the beginning of your woes. If you are worried about the FBI watching your ass just get into pirated games. I honestly get scared sometimes if I hear of people pirating games. The world of Data has changed a lot. One of the biggest reasons I want to try and get onto Apex is because I read some scary information about the creators of ROE. Now I'm trying to get a replacement. Who here enjoys playing PUBG on their phones??? Go read about Tencent and who they are, scary shit...

So in short, no I haven't installed any pirated games on my PC.

I'm not bashing you for pirating or anything, I'm a poor deviant too (I'm not going to pay 979USD for the starter edition of some software I use), just trying to solve the issue.

I have never used origin

Last night I installed it, within 10 seconds searched Apex Legends, clicked download and this morning it was done.

It was easier than usong steam, no issues no problems at all.

Windows 7 OP i7 4770 and AMD RX480 8GB

Same thing for me. I even downloaded a few other oldie games to see how the gameplay was.

No issues with install or downloads

Okey everyone, so downloading the older origin client from the link I provided above works. It will update to the latest one once you install it and Bob's your uncle. Thanks for all the help everyone.
