I have been searching for an hour now, i am in the us. I thought they fixed the lag and everything? Did they? What's the best way to re look for a match if it get stuck, goto your dashboard and re launch?

It doesnt seem like it..

2 hours ive been searching for a game :(

I stayed up all night to download it and got 3 games in before the lag took over and i couldnt play,woke up 2 hours ago and i cant even find a match.

But were not the only ones belive that.

Leave it to EA to think this game wouldnt sell as much as it did,therefor not needing as many as servers as they do.

I spent 30 minutes trying to get into a game with a friends, got bored and came back to it a couple of hours later, and now it works like a treat!

nope... the servers are tore up STILL. this is just hidious, I bought the game at 10am est, and have played 2 damn games. SERIOUSLY? WTF? . I cannot believe that they cannot handle a 25,000(checked leaderboards for total) gamer push on thier servers. JUST STUPID. Ea has let me down time and time again with server issues. This one, will most likely break me of EA FOR GOOD. considering all i have now is a tut to fly a plane and shoot at nothing. yeah! thats a boat load of fun for 15 dollars. id like to see some maps added or some other content that can compensate for the money i just lost.:mad: EA GAMES, BURN :eek:

I was just playin for a while and the game lagged and closed to the main menu.

I think they're still trying to fix it, we'll see.

Bought the game as soon as I got home from work, and haven't been able to join a game all evening. First it said no games avaialable, now it just keeps searching.

Sucks.

Sigh. This makes me reminisce of those good old days where when a game came out, it was a finished, tested product. Now the "official release" versions of games are like refined beta tests.

this was the only game of the summer that i realy wanted to play that much and they fuck it up pretty good. way to go again EA and DICE, like half of their console games have online problems. you think they would learn. i rember when serves would crash for battlefield 2 on PS2 and XBOX. the same problem happen then.

Hey guys, yeah it sucks that we pay $15 and can't play it, but EA wasn't expecting to see the extremely high volume of players and didn't think to set up more servers than necessary.

It sucks I paid $15 for a service they're not even providing. I was able to play earlier for about an hour total, now I just get stuck at the searching screen and have to go to the Dashboard and re-boot the game for the same thing to happen. What a crock of crap.

This is a just a piss take. Managed 3 games on my own and 1 game with some friends in an entire day. This game would be fantastic if it would just bloody work! Another masterstroke from the world famous EA!!:mad: The slap in the face with all of this is that the problems we are getting are the same as when they launched the previous battlefield! SORT IT OUT

HA!

I've had this game purchased and downloaded since 4:30 PM eastern standard time, and I have yet to play a single game. :mad:

This is something I completely didn't see coming. I mean, the Bad Company demo had its issues, as did the full game when it was release, but that was just a bit of lag. At least I could find a damn match.

With 1943, I can't even get into a match. I get the whole "session no longer available" or "no games found, try again later." :(

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure DICE will come through on this one as well. They always do. I'm a huge Battlefield fan, and the series only has dissapointed me when this kind of thing happens, especially in this instance.

UGH! I don't even kno what to say anymore. I just hope they fix this quick.

Pretty typical EA move .. Multiplayer only .. hmm .. wonder if we'll need a lot of servers? Nah, it will be alright who will even notice!?

GOT A HUGE SOLUTION!

This ONLY works if you have at least been in one game, so pay attention;

- If you get booted or if your game freezes, simply boot the game back up.

- Instead of hitting Quick Match, open up your Xbox Guide.

- Go to your Recent Players list (The people you have played with recently) and look for someone who is currently in a Battlefield 1943 game (NOT SEARCHING).

- Go to their profile and choose "Join Session in Progress", and you're in.

I have tried this 4 different times, and I was able to join a game 3 of the times. It's not a perfect means of getting in, but it's a much better way than waiting and crossing your fingers. Hope this helps anyone!
