BFBC2 - Multiplayer down? (360)

Just bought a copy a BFBC2 yesterday and spent 7 hours last night till 3 in the morning completing the admittedly short but very awesome campaign mode. Anyway, today I go to play it online and nothing happens. It comes up with a message stating that it is searching for games and then that disappears and nothing else happens.

Is anyone else having this issue or should I just chalk this up as the final game I ever buy from the largest crap factory in the world...... our lovely friends EA - spoiling gaming one game at a time

I think the EA servers have been down for a while?
I couldn't get on to FIFA 10 online yesterday.

So is £40 a game not enough for EA to be able to manage their servers? Loads of other companies do it fine yet the largest games company in the world can't.

EA = Epic Ass

There are MAJOR problems with Bad Company 2 multiplayer on pc at the moment.

I have only managed to connect once in the last week :x

They are trying to fix the problems at the moment, but I wouldn't hold my breath :-D

"EA = Epic Ass" - Agreed

Whats your username?

Mine is birdyboyuk. Will have to team up at some point!

I've experienced a few probs myself playing online. Loses connection half way through a game!

I'm now debating whether to take this back to Tescos for a refund and buy it second hand later as I've already completed the single player.

Bought it last week for my lad and haven't been able to get on line at all.
Do Game take it back if it doesn't get online or do I go to EA and get my money back?

Servers are going to be down for the weekend.

No need to send it back, Batlefield and EA are just upgrading the servers
Details here

If you think one day is bad, EA blocked Bad Company 1 for loads of people, including me, for around 8 months!!
That was crap, although they did fix it after, but that was a ridiculously long time.

I'm jealous, at least you guys have sampled the online part. I really enjoyed the single player so if the hecticness and destruction is carried over to multiplayer (which I'm sure it is - if not more so) then I will love it. Just a shame that EA manage to majorly screw up yet again. On the BFBC2 EA forums there are people complaining about losing their unlocks/weapon upgrades so it does appear that EA have stuffed a cock (rooster/male chicken) in the face of all us gamers who shelled out for this.

That is bad, and just another indication of how much (or rather, how little) EA thinks of its customers. My point is though that if more people demanded refunds in situations like this then EA (or any other company) would have to be more careful about stuff like this. Personally (and a little bit childish possibly) I don't want EA to have my money for something which is broken. Buying it second hand means that EA don't see any of my money

Yeah, i was thinking about asking them for a refund, but wasn't sure if they would or not.
It took one of the main guys from DICE all those months to campaign for us for EA to let us play online. so yes it was very bad. And hopefully they don't repeat the same with BBC2.

why did you get banned?

They are adding extra servers this morning. Should be back up and running soon, and hopefully the online will be improved. Last night was very laggy for 2/3 games, but then picked up and was back to normal.

They will be updating progress at EA Battlefield forums:

...........and at the Battlefield Blog:
