(Unnecessary preamble.) Given yesterday's failure of the L4D2 Game On, we decided to change to Battlefield 3 to put this fancy server of ours to the test. I made the relevant Steam event but... that doesn't really help, does it?

Does Origin have groups and events like Steam does?

No it does not.

Origin doesn't really support any of the features that Steam does in terms of profile and networking.

So right now all it does is provide access to games that EA made Origin-Exclusive and quite possibly snoop a bit more around your hard drive than you'd like it to? – Shadur Nov 6 '11 at 20:22
