After successfully playing FIFA 12 PC game from the beginning of October, as of 20 October 2011, I could no longer start the game. I have ever since been getting an error message when trying to start the game via Origin stating “We could not activate FIFA 12 on this computer using the EA account you provided” I have been in contact with EA for many hours and they have not resolved or cured the problem. I have completely uninstalled Origin and FIFA 12, have used Revo Uninstaller to completely remove the program (as instructed by EA), have been given two new game codes and have even tried to log on as another user with a new game code given by EA, all with the guidance of EA customer support and still no success. Additionally EA have given me a game code for a different game to see if that operates on my PC and that alternative game does operate, which demonstrates that Origin is functioning and therefore the fault seems to be FIFA 12. Following many more calls to EA Customer Support, an EA advisor finally admitted on 7 November 2011, that they cannot solve the error. I was told the fault will be reported to the game programmers and that I would get an email response from them on 8 November 2011. After yet again another empty undertaking from EA customer support, it is now 9 November 2011, and the promised email response from EA did not materialise. EA have not got a clue on how to react to the error message. But worse is the customer support, they may be polite when they speak, but it is a hugely frustrating experience. I have now been in contact with EA for the past 3 weeks and find myself with zero progress and a large telephone bill and a game that will not work. I have noticed on Google searches that a similar fault also appears on Battlefield 3, so it is a problem that also occurs on other EA games. Has anybody else on this forum experienced a similar error message and resolved the fault? I have posted all of the above on the EA forums without success.
