Hi

Re: Disconnecting from EA Server Star Battlefront I & II Error 201. Seeing 100% packet loss

My results aren't much different from yours, so i suspect its actually a problem on EA's end. Check their service status, there's a chance its the node you're connected to that's struggling but this is unlikely. Here are my own results..

Windows PowerShell

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> tracert bfbc2-ps3.gos.ea.com

Trace complete.
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Looks like it would be unplayable for me as well but all other services are working so the main culprit is EA's servers unfortunately 😞 contact their support or check their site for any server issues - if EA bother to say! It is EA, after all..

Can you run a trace to 8.8.8.8 (google.dns) and post the results?

Kind regards,

Lee

Thanks for that Lee, will do. Yep, makes sense as I can play World of Tanks with no issues. Will post more details later after I finish work

No worries mate, glad it helped! Easily overlooked when things are "expected to just work" isn't it? But yes, if you can connect to World Of Tanks (good game!) that would likely indicate a problem with EA's servers. If i had the game(s) myself i'd have checked, though i do have Battlefield 1 and V, those struggled as well!

I'll run another trace now and copy the results into here!

Similar to the last one! Give it a try though, a traceroute (otherwise known as pathping) is quite often blocked by some nodes/routers and can be considered malicious if you ping too fast!

Kind regards,

Lee

Re: Disconnecting from EA Server Star Battlefront I & II Error 201. Seeing 100% packet loss

You're welcome dude!

I don't use Origin much or really play many EA games, but it could be that they're trying to connect to US servers whilst there are more local ones?

Feel free to raise a complaint/issue with them, however they may try to pass blame even when its not Virgin's fault lol

Kind regards,

Lee
