NBA Live fails to connect to server

★ Apprentice

Since i started the demo ive not been able to get it to connect to EA server. I can play the game and access any features not required internet. When the game loads up it starts looking for an update. It always gets to 15% and then stops for about a minute until the error messages comes up. NBA-DCFP. i assume its trying to download a new patch for the demo. any ideas?

Same issue here! EA help is no help!

i have preordered.

should I try and cancel the NBA Live 19 preorder since it will probably do the same thing with not updating and connecting to the EA servers!

 

please advise! Thanks

i wouldnt bother cancelling unless you think this is game breaking issue. more likely they will release a patch in the coming days to fix this along with other issues. worst case scenario you will have to delete the game once its downloaded and reinstall after fix.

On PS4. I did delete, redownload and install it last night but it still stops at 15% everytime. I can play the game just not anything that requires online functionality.

Hey @stevenomes

 

In this situation, could you please try some additional connectivity troubleshooting steps for PS4?

 

Then try to reinstall the demo again.
