That's indeed overcompensating for no putting the game on steam...

I would proxy it. I remember buying the premium pack for no money, when it was easily obtainable on the Thai(?) Origin store.
Luckily I never ran into any problems with mine, despite of some people being refunded their money and taken their premium status away.
