Waited all day to get 6's so the servers can crash and now the game can't be played. When will you guys just give up and let someone else make a hockey game again???

    No offense. Are you a YouTuber/Gamechanger? How do you have the game early?

    Don't worry, you're only missing an error message telling you what we already know - EA and servers don't be like each other.

    Looks like BF4 is out too
  • This is what I mean. It's not just NHL but any and all EA games have suspect servers. There's no reason for a company of that size to have any kind of server/desync issues at all, ever. Just 100% unacceptable.

    He has no idea what he's talking about, you know. Until an actual network engineer states facts instead of the assumptions that everyone here claims are "facts", speaks up that's all hey are. Assumptions.

    Online play is certainly more complicated than he makes it sound. No disputing that, but there is also no disputing the fact that ea has more server issues than other AAA publishers/developers. Also no disputing the fact that the amount of servers available are pretty weak compared to other games, and the fact we can't choose what region we want to search in is also inexcusable.
  • If I'm playing an unfinished early access alpha or beta and there's connectivity issues and desync. That's fine and I'll just let the devs know about it.

    If I'm paying $60 for a game and it's billed as a finished product and it has those same kind of issues that's a major problem.

    The only way it'd be OK is if ea came out and said, every year, the $60 game is a beta.

    As a systems engineer that's responsible for multiple 10,000+ concurrent user servers where 99.9% uptime is considered poor, I'd be completely embarrassed if we launched a system directly into an outage as reported here. Issues are to be expected after launch, but an outage is unacceptable.

    It's one thing to see these issues come up in a brand new game with a young company, but this is a yearly release to a community that isn't rapidly growing by a company that certainly isn't losing money.
  • /\ This guy works for a company that cares. Clearly, EA is not that kind of company. Now give them your money and be quiet.

    All their games went down. It was a highly unusual occurrence. It was also resolved in 30 minutes. Being a network engineer you're no stranger to an outage of that size. Yes, our precious games weren't playable for 30 minutes online. Let's go lambaste the company that needs to provide online services for millions of people at the same time and act like we know exactly what happened. It's the internet. Servers go down. People need to get over themselves.

    I Just hate how the community here acts as if they know exactly what happened and how to fix it. It's one thing to be upset because you can't play, but it's another to anonymously bash EA when you probably don't even know how update the firmware on your router and act like if you were there you could fix it.
  • This happened just about every year when I was playing NHL every year. No excuse imo.

    It happens with every online game. Servers go down. It's not hard to find something else to do for a bit.

    Yes, servers go down, and that's why you build in redundancy so that the entire service doesn't go down because of a small number of failures. Business continuity isn't a new thing these days. EA has the resources to provide a rock solid server infrastructure, they simply choose not to do so.

    yet people keep buying the game.

    It just means ea is popular ok! Too many people wants in on their products
  • PUBG doesn't have as major of server issues as EA does and their game is infinitely more popular than anything EA has out.
