Game wont launch
Ive recently bought C&C 3 Tiberium Wars on origin.
I know that the servers are shut down and that multiplayer isnt an option.
But I wanted to play single player/campaign.
When I click play, a window pops up asking to "sign in to your EA account to activate your game on this computer"
After putting in my log in details a message comes up in the same window
"Could not connect to the servers, please try again in a few minutes"
and the game doesnt launch.

Anyone have any suggestions for me?

RE: Game wont launch
First piece of advice, post in the correct forum Smile

Second - which Operating system are you working on? Windows 7, 8, 10 or an Apple one?


I am not an employee of EA/Envision and the views expressed are my own.

If I reply in any other language than English then it is a Google translation Smile

RE: Game wont launch
Run both the game and Origin as administrator. If that doesn't work, reinstall. If it persists, you'll have to contact EA support.

Also, a fan-run multiplayer server exists at

Irrelevant. This is a problem mostly tied to the Origin version of the game (which is Windows only, FYI).
