nevermind, just seen notice alongthe bottom, ''we are over capacity and adding new servers etc etc'' shame they failed to mention that before i bought this online only game !
#2
anyone managed to get a game yet?
#3
No... another EA failure - don't even bother getting enough servers for the release. I'm glad I only got the trial instead of wasting 1200 points on it.
#4
aye its nothing short of a joke, should stop people being able to download it during the time its not available
#5
I managed to play on it earlier but for now while the server is down or something im just messing about on the tutorial
#6
i was doing well earlier got 90g but now cant connect and my mates bought it and havnt been able to play a game
#7
Fancy having a game come out for everyone to buy then it dosn't work for anyone lol
#8
same ere not played a game yet!!
#9
How long do you think it'l be untill they have enough servers? I'm planning on getting this tommoro when it comes out on ps3 do u think it'l work then? scandalous having a game thats unplayable on the release day, even though its a download EA should be ashamed.

err similar beef?
#10
A friend asked me to get this earlyer, glad I dididnt if a online only game cant be played online!!!!
Thats plan stupid!
#11

i would imagine that would still require a server, although it could be privately hosted i suppose

I doubt the ps3 version will be as popular tbh and i havent read of their servers being down
#14
great game add SuperCanaries if u fancy a game
#15
just managed to have a go, feels souless, needs more sound effects or something.
#16
Still getting a 'Failed to connect to EA servers' message. I did buy some points to get this but I think I'll pass now, same with Need For Speed Shift.
#17
cant get in any games again myself, although trying to get in with my mate, its a joke i tell ye !
#18
just had another go, got shot about 4 times in a row by spawn campers who can hit you with the rifle from 300 miles away, wont be putting that game back on for a while !
#19
how very pessimistic of you ! as I say, ive give up on the game anyway, imo, its cack.

I found that with some levels on bad company mind!

I downloaded the full game last night and get the following message when I try and connect:

'your gamer profile does not have the correct permissions to use Xbox Live functionality'

I've been on LIVE for over 2 years and never had this before. Renewed my subs in June and my Xbox is set up without any censorship or restrictions. It seems quite a few are having the same problem so it must be down to EA. Think yourself lucky that you get as far as queing for a server!

How is it plain stupid that they've had far more people buy the game than expected?

It has set a new benchmark in downloadable gaming, and they obviously didn't realise just how good their marketing has been.

They're not getting anymore servers, they'll just wait till less people are playing, once you've paid they don't care.


Rubbish.. why would they not want more people to buy it as news spreads of the lack of server space? :?

It is plain stupid since it seems as if most people r havin the same problem. Iv never known any 360 game have this much of a problem b4. And its hardly a benchmark, its not like others are gona b thinkin we should do this coz this went so well !!!
#28
STILL having issues, update at 4 o clock claims they are still adding servers, what a p-take

From a business point of view it's gone superbly.

You think the financial managers of the major game producers aren't taking note that EA have just made a massive amount of money on this? From a financial point of view.. they've took a lot more money than they ever expected.. because more people have bought the game than they thought would.

Yes it's annoying for people (including me) who've bought the game that can't play it. But I'm delighted that so many people will be playing this game online... the lack of servers is temporary.

not so temporary that it still isnt fixed over 24 hours later eh

I eventually got on last night after linking my gamer tag with my EA account and the 'permissions' message went away to be replaced by the 'cannot find any games - try again later' message. I did get a game after quite a few attempts at around 10.30 and I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed - its not terrible by any means and its can be fun especially driving around in the vehicles. It reminds me a bit of the old Delta Force games I used to play online a few years back. Worth a try and it might grow on me, but I wish I'd downloaded the trial version first then I might not have been so quick to part with my points.

Same here bit of a poor mans Bad Company and that was not great!:oops:

I got 10 games in last night, then went to bed (took about 5 mins to get in the 1st game).

It's working for me now.. so yes it was temporary ;-)

I think I was a bit hasty when I said the game wasn't as good as expected - it seems to be growing on me after having a few goes over the weekend. The server issues seem to have eased and I've got used to the game & controls and started advancing (very slowly!) up the ranks. Some maps are better than others, but theres something quite satisfying when you are successfully defending a flag at a junction with planes flying at you, jeeps flying past and tanks advancing & firing shells at you! I'm on 10mb broadband but have noticed lag on some games so not sure if its my end or the servers. For that reason I very rarely choose sniper class - its impossible trying to shoot someone on a distant hill when they disappear and re-appear in a different spot just as you aim a headshot! :-D
#36
I have 2MB internet & got no lag at all - it's probably intermittent due to the server upgrades.

Might have a blast on this tonight........

Yeah i know what you mean i thought it was kinda boring at the start, but the more you play it the more you enjoy it! :-D
I've got crappy talktalk free internet i think its about 2MB (but its the worst provider I've ever had) and i have not had any lag what so ever on this game.
