Re: Xbox connection problems.

Its a normal adsl I think
I'm on the basic package
Not over my usage
and when I do pings on my computer on speedtest.net they seem to be fine at like 50 or so and less  Huh
It has been mint for the 1st three months, so I don't see why there is a problem. I'm going to see what call of duty WaW is like tonight, just to make sure its not just Fifa.

Re: Xbox connection problems.

u might like to try www.pingtest.net . same company but the test seems abit more stable on the ping side of things.
is it all day your having issues or is it worse an better at diffrent times of the day.
good idea to see if its a plain issue with fifa or not

Re: Xbox connection problems.

This is at 8.15am
I'll see what its like after work, but i think it might be the ea servers. But I have noticed my connection just cut off, even on my computer so I don't know whether this is down to the ea servers? ( Cut off during playing fifa )

Re: Xbox connection problems.

The issues for me on the PS3 version of fifa only happen in the evening from 6pm onwards.  I just cannot play it online, I have managed around 4 nights of decent gaming since Fifa was released, all the others have seem me kicked from the game either at the start or in the actual match, if its in the actual game I receive awful ingame lag and then get kicked back to the Fifa front screen.
I can tell if its a bit poo as on the screen where you ready up and pick a position it takes 4-5 seconds which is instant if everything is ok.

Re: Xbox connection problems.

Well me and my mates play on that pro club and have had a few games where it starts and you can't even move your player. Then you have to switch your xbox off which is stupid, if you can't play the game it shouldn't take you into the match, I think Fifa need to sort out there servers. Angry
