Origin Friends List not loading

★★★★ Novice

I'm trying to check my friends list on the origin app but it never loads, I tried logging out and back in, restarting the app and the computer and nothing. How do I fix it?

Which anti-virus software are you using? We've had reports of this from players with Kaspersky and this workaround was provided in their forum:

Cannot play online matches with friends because of this. EA, PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE. If you are forcing us to use Origin, you should at least try to keep it running. 


If I check the server status page, everything appears online, which is obviously false.


Another question would be why FIFA 14 sees my friends profiles as selectable when trying to start an online friendly but it wouldn't work because of friends list not being available. Please get rid of this forced limitation or keep it running properly. We have already paid you. Use the fscking money to keep the service up.

Please Origin do something. I cant decline friend invites and therefore cant play Simpsons tapped out anymore. It only runs for 10 seconds before it disconnects.
