Are you this ******* dumb? they have no regrests for your privacy. They steal your personal information without your authorization, You have to be always online in order to play your games, there is no offline mode. most of their games have NO mod support at all. I dont see anything good at this broken piece of **** and you sire might be working for EA! please take a .45 and shove it in your mouth you ****.

The only wrong is that EA and Origin have NEVER given support mods

WTF, sponsored by Origin !? That sucks, they are totally NOT mod friendly with their games. Valve and steam should support this, that's were a big part of the modding support comes from!

Why are Origin sponsoring this when they make it so impossible to mod anything? currently tearing my hair out over Origin's release of Kane's Wrath refusing to be modded because of the ******* launcher they swapped from the original one.

Origin just said 2 of my purchases have failed yet charged me for them (first time buying there wow what a start!) so for all i care origin and EA can sink to the depth of hell.

About origin, i'm almost completly certain that they are sponsoring this for some better reputation. Since Gmaes like Battlefield 1942 and Command And Conquer generals have mods disabled on the origin version. Next year please ask if valve or another company that has a good reputation with modable games sponsor this. Now origin and EA are just walking away with credit they've never deserved.

I am also most flabbergasted by this choice of sponsorship. Origin and ModDB always were... totally two different ideas and websites.

Still, it is a nice suprise considering how ModDB rarly had such a big sponsor.

Yeah, I can understand you guys. But it's always so stupid that when you can get a big cheque, you have to choose between the money or your integrity.. Oh well, hopefully it is money well spend towards the site and the event :).

Then you have EA calling the Sim City modders hackers and slamming them for calling them on the DRM crap and releasing a mod for it.

^So many of this.. I knew when I saw EA sponsored, the shitstorm would be released. But all said here is so true. I mean, comon, they have just been voted worst company of the USA, AGAIN! They ******* suck at games and mods, destroying what is best. But their management always does stuff like this, to get the "player" back. It's just sad.. :(

It's great to see the MOTY Awards again! Looking forward to see what comes out on top. Keep up the great work, ModDB staff, I wouldn't like to see the modding scene without your continuing support.

I find it ironic the sponsor is Origin given EA's stance on modding...

It's that time of the year again, when mods and games flood us with lots of updates!! xD

I have to agree with everyone else, it's kinda ironic to have Origin sponsoring this, seeing EA's stance about Mods and so many people complaining they can't install mods on the Origin version of a game.

But I'll just ignore the Origin logo on the awards and everything will be fine. xD

Have to agree with the comments here. Origin/EA being the sponsor is kind of wrong. Pretty much every one of their franchises who have been modable in the past are now closed environments. Some even to a degree where it becomes ridiculous (SimCity anyone?)
Didn't mind Alienware sponsoring in the past, or even Crytek who also support the community and offer an editor/SDK.

Somehow I can't believe you guys couldn't find a more suiting sponsor.

Good luck to all the mods though

Origin will probably have its own "Greenlight" and show some dedication towards indie developers. That is, if they still intend to copy everything Steam does ^^

Maybe that sponsoring means we are becoming popular ^^!

"Sponsored by Origin" Is this some kind of a joke?

Irony must be a foreign concept to the morons currently running this site.

Really Origin? Run by the same company that has been spitting in modders faces since the start? Mod DB staff I thought you were better then this.

I guess if EA's money is spent on a good thing, like this mod/indie site, then it doesn't really matter where the money came from. But the fact that EA could be getting recognition for doing something "good"... thats a sickening feeling. Like a spider luring a fly into its web...

Ironically sponsored by Origin and a majority (if not all) of EA games dont support mods. Not to be rude but I just find it Ironic :D

Oh god, not the evil taint of EA's ****** digital distribution platform. And they haven't even released a game in years that can be modded on top of that.

Kill it with fire, then **** on the ashes and throw that black ball of ****-soaked ash out the nearest airlock.

As someone who spent the last year of my life building a mod and having an active page here, thank you for the chance to compete against all these great mods.

The leading mod scoreboard is kind of wonky. #1 had 700, #2 has 2000, #3 has 800, #4 has 1200...

uh ... does this count by the max amount of mods included in the voting, and not their votes received?

You can't, they don't even tell you after, so if you don't make the top 100 you don't know if you were number 101 or 3001.
