Oh cool, "Could not log in" and now another 20 minute wait for no reason... Did I just buy the waiting game?

I'm getting the same thing with NA East 2.

Yeah even if you do get into a server you cannot create or claim anything. Another problem is if you get sent to the tutorial nothing happens even if you exit back to the menu. I'm just thinking its down.

So 2 times now I've been waiting after a "Connection issue"... YAY I bought the waiting game... :/

You would think that a company that has been around as long as EA would be better able to anticipate the amount of server load they'd need to handle when releasing a game like this, guess not.

This, I started studying then got bored and bought it, Origin says I have 3 hours of gameplay already, but I haven't even been able to start the tutorial.
