Is it possible to have a torrented game separate from a legal one?

Post by aweirddude on Wed 05 Apr 2017, 01:53

Hello!

I'm very new to torrenting, haven't done it on a regular basis until now. So I was wondering, if I have a separate client (if that's even possible) will it be unable to lake over to a legal copy? Someone I know allow me to use their Origin account, and while they don't have all expansions I don't want to spoil anything for them. The fact they are incredibly anti-piracy doesn't help, either... Embarassed

I'm bad at explanation - if you want me to elaborate, just ask. I'm aware this isn't a normal question but I'm just wondering before I break anything Wink

Thanks!

Yes, you can have a legit copy besides a pirated copy on 1 PC but you must keep them strictly separated.
When you use someone else's Origin account you can't harm the game for that other party.

Hello,

You wouldn't even need their Origin if you just installed everything pirated though. You can even keep the savegames that you might already have.
