Don't know if you guys get the same message but when me and my mate try to play online friendlies on a PC we get this exact message after accepting the invite on Origin:
"Failed to join game session. The session is already full or is no longer available/ Please try again."
I also want to mention that I have the Standard Edition and my friend has the Champion Edition.

That's the issue . Those versions of the game aren't compatible for somewhat reason. We've waited so long and we can't play the game we love with our friends. such a shame.

@iamalex44 I feel like this could indeed be the issue. Can someone from the EA team look into this? The standard edition players are not able to play friendlies with the ultimate edition players.

Can confirm it has to do with what version you own. First tried with a friend who has standard, then tried with a friend who has ultimate. Standard got the error, ultimate didnt.

I got the ultimate version and my friend got the champions version but we both get the error. So we just have to wait till EA gets this fixed?

Also an issue for people who have friends with EA Play Pro, I bought the champ edition and cannot play with any of my friends who are playing on EA Play Pro. They don't seem to have any issues playing together though. 

 

I don't get why this is an issue? It's not even cross play, we are all on the same platform (PC) and all logged into Origin (no steam version)
