Could not connect to the server, please try again in a few minutes

★★★★ Novice

In the past origin worked fine and I could play it regularly. But as of the last 2 mouths it just hasn't even started. Like I try to log onto origin and I'm greeted with "Could not connect to the server, please try again in a few minutes". And then if I finally manage to get into origin I it says "cant connect to origin at this time" . And when I click the go online button it never works. I know its not my wifi because I am always connected to it. And Ive rest my router more time than I can count. Ive also deleted and reinstalled origin 6 time. Please give me some advice on how to fix this.

Restart your machine and try to start Origin.

 


 

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours.I'm a gamer like you, trying to help you (i'm not an EA employee).

If you want to know us or/and come up with ideas to improve the Origin platform or/and talk about anything and many more besides,you could also visit the NEW section Origin General Discussion http://answers.ea.com/t5/General-Discussion/bd-p/origin-general-discussion-en
