So…as has been reported (about a zillion times), there are sporadic server outages from EA today, starting with the update this morning.
There is NOTHING you can do about it, but wait for them to fix it. Reinstalling, uninstalling, holding your breath, dancing on one leg, and poking holes in the screen of your padular device to “let the evil out” DOES NOT WORK.
Solution…wait. Go do something else. The new Borat movie is on Netflix. Go have a laugh while you wait.
