Mass Effect 3 Can't Connect to EA severs

★★ Newbie

Mass Effect 3 cannot connect to the EA severs. Right when I get to the title screen area, where there are two laptops, I will automatically try to connect but every time it fails to connect to the EA servers. Additionally, my DLC is not able to download because of the connection issue. When I try to press multiplayer, the same thing happens. I've been reading the bioware and ME3 forums and apparently this is a pretty popular issue. 

 

I've already forwarded my ports with the start and end ports at 3659 under UDP. What else can I do to play multiplayer and connect to the EA severs?

 

Thanks.

Exit from ME3, change your account password in Origin-client and restart ME3.

 

This worked for me and a lot of other players - it worth a try.

Same here. I tried to play in a friend's house (different router) and other computers and didn't work either, so it must be the servers

I have this exact problem. It says that the Mass Effect 3 servers are unavailable and then it fails to authenticate my DLC.

IT'S WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

I have no idea why it started working all of a sudden. I'm now hoping that my games don't lose connection as I've been reading on the forums. Hopefully your guys' connections work soon too!!!!!!!!!
