Origin blocked in Myanmar (Burma)

I’ve just stumbled upon a very concerning post on reddit. According to the OP, and several topics (for example here and here) on EA Answers, Origin has been blocked in Myanmar.

origin-rage

Check this out:

I live in Myanmar, and I own about 20 games on Origin, and have spent hundreds of dollars on the platform. I’ve bought the full editions of all of the Battlefield games up to this point, with their season passes. I was trying to log into Origin a few days ago, and got a bizarre “Access Denied” message. I googled it, and found that “Origin is no longer available in Myanmar.”

Supposedly EA is blaming this on complying with US sanctions against Myanmar (which is total crap, considering Steam, GOG, and every single other content distribution network is just fine). Additionally, sanctions were lifted on October 7th. Still no access to our games that we bought.

None of us has been offered a refund – just a “sorry, all your games are gone.”

Remember, if they do it to me, they can do it to you too. Don’t use or buy games from Origin. They will take your content away without offering a refund.

I feel like this is something that the entire gaming community needs to know about – I don’t think that revoking access to an entire country’s worth of people’s paid content is something that should happen quietly. PLEASE spread the word about this. We in Myanmar need your help to get our games back!

This really sucks guys, lets hope gamers in Myanmar get their games back asap!!!

This is a really nice message to all football fans, Origin Access is a pretty nice service, last addition was Titanfall Deluxe Edition. Now they’ve added FIFA 16. That’s a really nice deal if you just want to play for a little while. Can’t wait to see what else they will bring to the Vault.
