Hi, i have some questions before i make an origin account and start buying games. Hope u guys can shed some light on it for me faster than contacting their customer services:
1) I have a really crappy net at home but decent enough ping (I think...i can play bf4 on xbox live). First question: Does PC games (especially Titan fall, bf series etc) require better ping than xbox360? Im struggling with xbox live as it is now.
2) Second question: It'll take forever to download from home. Can i download a game from origin from elsewhere (my office where we have Optic lines) and copy and install on my home system?
3) Does setting game settings higher increase lag? Playing bf4 on medium and ultra changes anything online?
Thanks in advance.

My System

1. Go to www.speedtest.net and please report the results.

2. Yes, you can do that. However, the game must be downloaded and installed on the main machine, not a work machine.

3. It increases computer lag, yes.

[SOLVED] Origin and Star Wars the Old Republic
Hey Guys Got a quick question for you. I have Star Wars : The Old Republic. I did not buy it through Origin. I have also purchased Battlefield 3 a while ago which forced me to use Origin. I noticed when I logged into Origin, it had a order history of me purchasing SWTOR time.
