    Is there anyway to stop the auto updates for games when i sign in. I signed into origin and battlefield 3 is looking for a 6gb patch *** and race room experience something the same. Sometimes i see downloading in my seam app and check and its downloading 4gb total throughout all the games Another which is just mental is team fortress 2 which wants a 12gb download.

    In Steam there's an option for 'keep this game up to date automatically'. Uncheck it.


    Not sure about Origin, I'm on the app ATM.
