I found out that its not pushing me to EA App yet thankfully so my Simsmas may yet be saved
(actually there isn't even banner telling me about the app change anymore so thats tad confusing too)
still find this odd timing for forcing such change on people though
would imagine people have other things to do than bug test new apps during holidays

Thank you so much for passing along this information, it's a big help in easing my anxiety and the butterflies in my stomach every time I click on Origin. I've been dreading the conversion to the EA App after reading all the problems others have been having with it. Now I can relax and just concentrate on playing my game. Happy Holidays and Happy Simming everyone!

I have been reading about the EA App transition from Origin, and most of what I have read is not good at all. It seems like Simmers are having quite a few issues with it, so I'm very apprehensive to switch.
As I was / am in the process of building a custom save file, I didn't update right away a few patches back, and it saved me from some of the worst game breaking bugs that were introduced between MWS, Werewolves, and HSY. And from what I've been reading, some of the bug fixes in patches & the SDX have worked for some, but not for others, and some have even introduced new bugs. So even though there are features & packs I would like to have, I'm cautious about updating just yet. So as of now, I'm at patch 1.87. I have automatic updates turned off in Origin for exactly this reason.
Here's My Question: I am trying to determine if, other prevalent EA App issues aside, switching to the new app would automatically patch my game? From what I've read, if I switch over, the game will update automatically to the most recent patch, and it is only after that that I can turn off automatic updates again, like in Origin; is that correct? Or has anyone been able to switch over from Origin to the EA App, but was successful in preventing it from updating/patching?
