Has the game managed to fix itself in 14 days?
Adding more servers definetly increased capacity, but there is still the problem of people who started playing when there were only a few servers wanting to play their original games. This causes the first few servers to overload massively, while the newer servers are very empty.
People are still dissapointed about the gameplay, which is mostly due to the DRM. This is something EA can’t make up for easily.
And, of course, with all of these cheap offline versions available, people will find it hard to resist a pirate.
On the other hand, it seems that the list of free games EA is offering to the users isn’t that bad – but that doesn’t change the fact that you need Origin.
So, the answer to the question is, to quote the great Stephen Fry:
“The short answer is no. The long answer is f*** no.“
