I am literally having the same problem. It's incredibly frustating since I know my brothers are able to play it. I've been looking forward to playing it and its disappointing.

Havin The same problem and I bought the game today!!!

Having the best first impression in my whole life till now! :D

But I kinda expected it ...... EA is always the same had a similar problem with Battlefield 4 but I fixed that one.

 

If this goes on I'll be very pissed off Frown

 

Pls EA and Respawn make it stop

Don't want to toot my own horn here, but this may be of some use for anyone with knowledge (or a EA tech).

 

I too have been running into this same problem on my machine (mind you I play BF4 & BF3 with orgin being installed for roughly 3+ months). My brother on another machine running off a different network can connect with no issue whatsoever. Dragged his gamedata into a portable HDD and popped it into my machine after uninstall of Titanfall. Still no good, however, when he logged into his account on my machine and played the game, Titanfall worked fine.

 

My idealogy on this subject is that there might be a issue with the latest update that happened recently (I'd say within a few days so 1-3 days) that caused anyone to recently buy the game to have this error to show up. Anyone who bought the game prior to the recency shouldn't be encountering this problem. Looks like an account verification/authenication issue or something of that nature, if not then he should not have been able to play on my machine at all.

 

** Potential Fixes **

1.)  Play Titanfall using the application found on the desktop (for those that created a shortcut) or in your ./Origin Games/ and see if that works.

2.)  Right-click on the application and click on properties, click on the 'Compatibility' tab and check the 'Run As Administrator' and see if that works.

3.)  Verify/Repair game data to see if there is any installation discrepancies that may be causing an issue (this actually happened to me).

4.)  Pray?

 

If anything, we should be so lucky that its not the DRM from Ubisoft so be merry on that.

You know that is the best thing I've ever heard in stuff like acces errors etc.!

 

I mean the stuff with account verification etc. might be a true solution because I already startet Origin with and without Admin, the same with Titanfall... nothing changed I repaired the game several times without any problems and at last (pretty painfull to me Frown) I reinstalled the game nothing worked.

 

I HOPE this is fixed like you said with some kind of account stuff in the next few days :D

 

PS: I am playing BF3 for about a year know, BF4 should be 2 months ago ... something like that and like I said every thing works but not Titanfall.

Aaaand I live in Germany so it is not a singel server or destination that doesn't work.

 

Guess waiting is the best solution :/

Same. From everything I've seen, it seems brand new players cannot play for the first time right now. Me included.
