Party not ready...?

Games been broken ever since the third day. Random crashes on PC that weren't happening day 1 or day 2 and now this annoying party not ready bug that requires me to completetly restart the game even though I'm queuing solo. Wouldn't be surprised if it has something to do with Origin's absolutely useless trash overlay that doesn't do anything but break things 99% of the time.

Same here. I'm not sure what they screwed with but they should change it back to the day 1 party system. It worked perfectly fine until yesterday and now I have to restart the game every 2-3 matches.

Party not ready bug!

★★★★ Newbie

First for some reason Im having issues with the matchmaking! When i trying to solo que for a game it tells me that im already in a party, but ive clearly have not been in a party or am in a current one! And this prevents me from searching games! To fix this i have to restart the game everytimes it shows and it happens every 2-5 matches!

The second thing is at the same time while im actually in an ongoing game, a random pop-up says that the party leader has quit when no one clearly did??

You don't need to restart the game. Just wait 1-2 minutes.

Wish it was. This is 14 hours later and I'm getting it all the time at the moment even after rebooting and restarting. Frown


I have noticed that since getting that bug on the player selection screen (after a restart and I get into a game) I cannot see character special abilities.


Also when I have this bug, the origins app throttles up to 8% CPU usage.

Even though I've just posted, thought I'd update.


I've forwarded my ports an that has improved things for me. Had 4 games in a row with no issues and no need to reboot. 


Port forward list can be found from EA here:
