don't even bother, I literally had a half-second lag in my games, smashed a controller. EA, you owe me $60.

    Its your internet. That's what they will tell you. I spoke with EA yesterday as I had to quit out of double digit WL games Sat, and Sun. They claimed it is my internet. Funny. Lots of people reporting the same issues.

    lol I can assure you, and EA, that it is not my internet, but rather their weak @$$ servers. Usually it's fine because my connection is good enough to overcome their cheapness, but on days like this where they extend WL and everyone is trying to get to that next rank or two, the servers can't handle it, it's as if EA either didn't know how many people play their game (which seems odd since it's been out for 20+ years), or they just don't care (which seems pretty likely)

    I understand and agree with you. Just telling you they will still claim its on you.

    I mean what's the point of calling them, not like whoever answers the phone can do anything to fix it. The only thing you can do is stop playing the game, and if enough other people do, EA will get the message. The problem is that I really do love this game, if it would just function properly.

    Remember as well, if you have issues impacting one set of servers, other servers will take a hit as they try to load balance the users connecting.

    Didn't last long, previous game was atrocious against a Spanish opponent. Gameplay felt like it was on ice, convinced it's all down to trash connections who would get kicked from the servers, banned in any other competitive game.

    Your still the closest to the east coast server. It would make sense more for you to be affected than Asia.

    You may want to check Twitter. Its all over there about EA's games having issues with servers right now. Madden, NHL, Fight Night, etc...

    I get that a lot. Always thought is because I leave my ps4 in rest mode and not shutting down.
