THE BUZZ: EA and DICE announced they are working round-the-clock in order to improve the stability of the Battlefield 3 servers, and fix any issues that fans have been having since the game launched. Many fans have encountered disconnection issues, black screens and severe lag, just to name a few problems.
“Server stability was solid in the first weekend, delivering EA’s highest-ever usage rates,” said the publisher. “While some players experienced intermittent disruption of online services due to high volume, internal estimates show that servers and service uptime stabilized to roughly 98.9% throughout the weekend, ensuring that players were connected and enjoying the game.”
“With a commitment to support the game as a software service, EA is listening to consumer feedback and is making daily updates and improvements to ensure an optimal online experience for all,” they added.
EGM’s TAKE: At least EA and DICE are both working hard to rectify the problems that have occurred at launch. Fans just need to keep the faith.
