Full servers

★★ Novice

 So in seconds the servers are full, what happens to the rest of the people who paid the extra amount to play the demo that can’t because ea doesn’t have big enough servers?

And even if you get in it crashes

I'm having that issue, but once I make it past as I'm loading in I constantly crash into the dashboard. It's not about the money you spent, it's everyone else and their mother who's trying to get on at the same time. 

 

The servers will be better as the day goes on, and into tomorrow  just relax.

It just seems they weren't expecting it, but I'm guessing they are doing their best to fix the issue as fast as they can. It's only a demo, so it's expected to happen.

Happened to me too, nice to see the streamers that got the free codes are in showing everyone how cool it could be while folks like me that actually gave Bio money stare at a connection problem screen.

 

I guess we aren’t VIP (enough).

Or how about EA takes their preorder numbers and sizes their server environment appropriately. This is utter * and not instilling confidence in their ability to manage a game that requires an always on connection to their servers to play.

Well i expect that the demo would crash but not that you even can log in exactly at the start time due to max cap of server why even bother giving out VIP pre-order option and that 3friends for free if your servers cant handle it.

What pisses me off the most is I paid £80 for this and there will be plenty of people playing who got a code from a friend. So I'm sat here waiting to play a game I spent money on while others who paid jack * get to enjoy it. What a joke.
