Nope. I had the same problem with my Origin accout once, though. Origin support is waaaaaaaaay better than Steam support, though. Steam's support is downright awful. They're usually helpful, but terribly slow.


Thankfully, I got a reply. I am not sure if it was an automatic one or not, but they are asking me to prove my ownership of the games. Since most games I own on Steam are from retail copies (with the exception of some cheap indie ones), it's easy for me to prove ownership.

I am impressed because I heard horror stories about Steam's customer support and I got a reply in less than 12 hours (given the time difference between Europe and USA, that's fine).

Of course, I am not going to judge until my account is fully restored. I'll keep you updated in case anyone is interested. After all, it may happen to anyone.

How long did it take Origin to retrieve your account?

I called them by phone, it didn't cost anything. I got my account back pretty much immediately.

So, you didn't have to go through the process of proving your ownership of your games and credit cards?

ahah no. That being said, I don't own a credit card and I don't ever connect any of my accounts to any of my bank accounts. Too risky. Also, how would I be able to prove ownership of my Origin/Steam games I bought on Steam? That'd be hard.

I'm fucking German, we don't need no credit cards, we have money in the bank, boy :lol:

irl, the only friends of mine that do own a credit card do so because they visited the US at some point. That's the only reason for getting a credit card around here: You need it abroad. It's not a thing here whatsoever. i'm not sure my parents ever owned a credit card, tbh. We don't like the idea of spending what we don't have or what we might have in the future unless it's unavoidable. If I don't have something in cash, I pay with my cash card/ATM card. That's how everyone does it. It's not just me, weirdly enough. :D Credit cards are capitalist BS. I don't suffer from not owning one, imho. I already have a card I can pay with.

i don't think buying online should be as easy as one click because that means that you basically only have to get one password in order to do damage. Hell nah. I don't even save passwords on my PC anymore ever since that has proven to be unsafe. I have 4 different email accounts for various purposes, every single online account of mine has its own unique password and nothing is directly connected to anything that holds my money other than the email adress of my PayPal account that I only use for PayPal.

Oooooooh ok. I agree and I'm the same. I thought you meant you only pay cash XD

Yeah I'd never buy something I can't pay for right then. unless it's unavoidable.

I'm fine with the simplicity of one password just being needed to get stuff. I hate going through complex procedures to buy stuff. I do often have to do it with other stuff anyway. I generally just use the same password for everything, but never bother to save it anywhere, as a result of it being so easy to remember.
