Servers have worked fine the last 2 weeks. Community Creations is a different story. If you try to log on and simply play ranked or player matches however it works about 95% of the time. Rarely you'll get a long loading screen followed by servers are down, but if you try and connect again it works.
I agree if the servers go down this game will lose a lot of value. Considering you never get a cutscene at PPV's that tends to kill Universe for me. All that build up for a generic match with a boring ending. At least online, despite being plagued by spammers and hackers, occasionally has a good match with legit players.
Oh well, here's to a regime change. May our new overloads be better than our previous ones.
