BF4 Xbox 360: "The connection to EA online was lost"

Hi,

I purchased BF4 for the 360 yesterday. Whenever I insert the disc(s) it takes me to the adjustment screen for the HUD. When I press "A" to confirm my adjustments it then loads and says "The connection to EA online was lost".

It will not let me play at all. HOWEVER, I switched to another Xbox live gold account and it managed to get past this screen and to the BF4 menu etc without a problem.

Does anyone out there know why my main gamertag account won't let me play?

Thanks

It's annoying! I really want to play on my main account. Let me know if you come across a fix for this. I've made EA aware of the situation but they are useless.

Nope mate I'm at work at the moment. I've tried the following, none if which worked:

1. Cleared system cache on xbox

2. Deleted all BF4 files/redownloaded them

3. Moved my account onto an external USB

4. Resetting my router

I'm sure I've tried other things.

I was going to try and change my origin email to see if that worked but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I've been trying to figure out why one account works but not the other. It's bizarre.

Have you had any luck?

Have you tried deleting first, then clearing your cache and immediately restarting your console?
