  • Seems to be quite a few connection issues

    Personally I have yet to be able to get into a multiplayer game. I'm either told that I lost connection to the server or that the server is full even when it says 15/32.

    I checked the EA boards and this seems to be a common problem tonight.

    Perhaps the servers can't handle the popularity on launch day?

    Keep trying different servers and you will find one that works. Also, if you get into a server and it crashes, you will have to restart your game to join a new server.

      I can hardly keep a connection with the EA master server, let alone join a game server. Its kind of ridiculous that release day, so many people can't even play the game, and the graphics and scripting are as buggy as they are. In the SP campaign there were several point where the background was flashing in and out, really annoying. EA sucks at QA.

        Yeah I couldn't connect to a single server... This is ridiculous...

          well, looks like I'm glad I didn't try last night. Single player was fun...

            It seem to be fine for most of the day, until later in the evening when everyone was logging on.

              They posted on Twitter that they are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. The game is to see if the game server is going to crash or the master.

                I am trying to add the TG servers to my favorites and all I get is "Waiting for Data". I hope they fix this soon.

                  Yeah, this morning is not any better, even with "play now", I still get error messages.

                    Maybe that's why they included a single player campaign - because they knew no one could do multiplayer on the first day......

                      Non-ranked servers working ok for you guys? If you want to play multiplayer, non-ranked I think is better.

                        These are the same issues that happened when BF2 came out, or any widely popular MP game for that matter. IMO, there's just no way for them to beta test how it will work w/o releasing the full game for free, and they aren't going to to that. It'll get better over time.

                          I read on another forum that the scrolling message bar at the bottom of the main menu screen acknowledges that they are having problems and that a solution is in the works.

                            You would think that after so many similar games being released, they'd have their networking code down pretty solid, especially concerning the Master Server, which is only responsible to keeping stats, rank, and that kind of stuff for your character as I understand it.

                              Don't know if this will help anyone...

                              I was getting the Unable to connect.... I rebooted my router started up the game and got right in. It could have been a fluke but worth a try.
