My problem looks exactly like yours, I could record the same footage if it helped, you will also find that instead of applying a booster, changing characters works to make your character show up as well.

You should also find that creating a match and inviting a friend will result in the two of you getting separated as the game loads.

No actually I don't. I spent actual money on this game and only 50% of it works.

This isn't a demo or beta test. This is a live game that costs real world dollars to buy. This issue was in the trial and has gone unfixed. This isn't a bug that is annoyance or inconvenience. This is a completely game breaking bug rendering MP completely unplayable.

Don't tell me to be patient.

I don't know if the "IPv4 and IPv6" has anything to do with it, I was just trying to see if there were any patterns. I was on call for ~3hrs this morning/afternoon with EA Support, and it amounted to nothing. I gave the rep access to my Gamertage (I know, I know, I was desperate) and he tried it wherever he was and had no problem playing, but he said his network was only "IPv4", so that's why I asked it.

 

Anyways, my bad for tossing that there, because apparently it's the scapegoat for the problem... Please, @EA_Dave@EA_David, @EA_anyone, please give this attention. It's not just a couple people; for every 1 person reporting the issue, I'm sure there are hundreds who have it but don't report it.

This whole "sometimes IPv4 and IPv6 dont work well with Peer to Peer" is BS. Its 2017. Mass Effect is a multi million dollar franchise. The fact that peer to peer is still being used for multiplayer is sad and a slap in the face to your fans. 

But this is not an excuse and a way to dismiss these paying customers who are unable to play your video game. This needs to be addressed immediately

I can say 100% it's an IPv6 issue. I can fix the issue by using an old modem that is running older firmware that doesn't support IPv6 and only issues IPv4 addresses.

Same console, same house, same internet connection and the problem is gone with the old router. It's IPv6 and it's also present in NHL 17. Same issue on head to head.

I have games on Steam,Uplay and can tell you that there is no new game releases,wich not even an update for various reasons,mate.

 

Because of this i do not have a console game, all too often appear problems. I prefer an computer, although it is more expensive.

@Gordelox yeah, it might help if you record the same footage and upload it. The more attention and proof this receives, maybe the more EA and BioWare will pay attention and actually work on it.

 

For everyone posting here: make no mistake, it is on the game's code to handle how peer-to-peer interactions work, so blaming ISP's is *not* accurate. The only thing an ISP does is act as the medium that the game sends data across. Is it more difficult to handle multiple addressing schemes? Yeah, it is. But it's up to the game to address it properly so it can send and receive them accurately.

This is a joke. I haven't completed a match in days from disconnects. All of my friends are getting them. I get bugs, I get stylized preferences in game creation, but BASIC INFRASTRUCTURE needs to be rock solid.
