  • 🆕 Friends list appears empty due to a large number of EA Friends (on certain platforms).

    • The team have identified that this is likely a hardware limitation linked to Bluetooth devices. Stuttering should not occur whilst using other devices for transmitting audio. If you are affected, please switch to a different audio device. If you are still experiencing this issue, please raise a new thread on EA Answers.
