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.

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.

yeah that was really weird to me too. It said I had 8 hours of gameplay when I first logged on.
Happy birthday Spray! I'm disappointed in you!
