And I probably have to go to EA to get a parental confirmation that I can play it?
Yes. If you want to play online for FREE you will have to go elsewhere, but in doing so you sacrifice account security. EA will not accept parental consent if you are under age. Either you meet the age requirement or you don't.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
