For anyone with Login issues, heres how to fix it!
I just bought Spore, C&C and Galactic Adventues today, I couldn't log in either with my EA/Origin account.

It would say login failed when I tried my existing Origin/EA account, or unable to verify key if I tried it on a new account.

To fix it, I got the Creepy & cute and Galactic adventures CD key from my Steam library and registered them in Origin, trying to register the actual Spore CD key says its already in use.

Then I went to EA's live chat support and got into a live chat:

Select Account Management as the topic and in the description, put in "CD key already in use/cannot log in"

I told the agent I bought the game on Steam and that the game wouldn't register in Origin because it says key was already in use and I couldn't login with my EA/Origin account ingame.

They asked for the steam CD key for Spore and linked it manually to my account.

Spore will not appear in Origin, but it will then allow you to login ingame right away!

You will also be able to login to https://www.spore.com/login.jsp and it should show you have Spore linked to your account and C&C and Galactic adventures if you added the Steam keys to your Origin account too.

This is how me and my brother got the same issue resolved. The servers are indeed still up as many other threads have said.

I have not tested galactic adventures yet but I'm sure it will work.

If you go on www.spore.com/login.jsp and login with your Origin login does it show you own Spore and the expansions just under your tagline, like in my screenshot http://gyazo.com/d5dbae28703807f9398fd2d1034c3dc9
it worked, took me a while since the support didnt understand me initially, yet in the end he removed all my spore games(ie.C&C and Galactic Adventures) and added the base game and both expansions.

so as of now i own spore on origin as well, i havent tried loging in from inside the game mind you, but this method indeed works with a little time spent they added the game into my library(with amazing kindness and patience i must add).

I didn't even have to contact them, as origin accepted my spore key too.
