The annoyance called Origin

I am so fed up with this shit program always popping up when I start a game. Seriously, it' just a service required for the game to run, stop fucking showing up.

Has anyone figured out a way to keep this shit minimized no matter what happens?

Ever tried disabling overlay both ingame as in origin settings?

What overlay? I am talking about the actual application, not Origin in game or what you possibly mean.

It pops for like 2 seconds before the game start, is that really a big deal.

Nope, the problem is somewhere else. Origin normally minimizes to system tray, which is perfect, but when you start a game, it jumps into taskbar, making it possible to alt tab to it, which IS annoying. Maybe I didn't describe it in the right way before.

Are you sure this is not bannable in any way? Or that it cannot cause any problems? After all, Blog is technically a connection to EA as well.

I'm using it since 5 days now... I also don't think EA can see you're using it, as it emulates Origin to the max.

Steam does the exact same thing? With all the problems with Battlefield 4 how is a simple pop-up box with Origin such an issue for you?

What annoys me most of all is that they couldn't just integrate all the stuff battlelog does--or at very least the "join server" menu--into the game itself instead of making it into a browser-based thing as it is now.

The origin launcher is always displayed whenever you open any origin-based game to give you confirmation that the game is indeed opening. The issue really is that the way BF4 is currently constructed, the whole game has to launch every time you join a server and quit every time you leave one.
