Heavy Lag Playing Online

on Wed Sep 05, 2012 8:49 am
I was just wondering what everyone else's experience has been playing on the EA Servers recently for Madden and/or NCAA. I've had my share of user games in addition to playing some bad lobby games.

I never had any issues in about 10-15 NCAA Games Online until Madden came out last week. Now that Madden is out, all of my NCAA Games online are lagging and so are the Madden games. I don't think that it is my connection because I have tried the "Test Connection" and still have the same speeds that I always have. Additionally, some of my opponents have been the same. For example, in my NCAA Dynasty, my buddy is Cal and I played him 2 times in our 2012 Season - Not a Single Lag Issue. I played him this week to open Pac-12 Play in 2013 and it was horrific lag throughout.

The only conclusion that I can come to is that with all of the additional users online for Madden, the servers have overloaded and it's tough to get a lag free game. I want to make sure this is everyone else's experience before being completely sure of it. If it's only me, then maybe I need to take a closer look at my connection.

In either case, I really hope that this is resolved soon!

I agree. Its probably the extra users online playing Madden that weren't also playing NCAA in the past month. I've only played 2 games of Madden online but both were slow. It was the start and stop lag where the players come to a stop for a second and then go again, but the gameplay and player movement as a whole just felt slower. Much slower than offline in practice mode.

As for NCAA, I didn't have any issues with lag for the first month (pre-Madden) but I did have my first mid-game disconnect in my most recent league game.

Hopefully it gets fixed because those two Madden games I played were boarding on unbareable to play and I don't want connection issues and lag to become a part of NCAA.

I really hope it gets fixed. I had a borderline unplayable game of NCAA on Sunday with one of my buddies. Rematch of our previous season National Title game, scheduled as a non-conference game, and I really feel like it affected the game way too much.

With any release of Madden I seem to remember that the lag was more present with EA servers, and then tapered off over time as players go back to a regular schedule of playing games instead of just playing it nonstop. Keep in mind, this Madden has been positively reviewed, and more people are buying it than normal.

My guess is that it's all the Madden users as well. Guys like me who don't play NCAA and are now using the servers for Madden. I don't know exactly how servers work but it seemed like last year the servers got better as the season went on. Personally though I haven't had too many problems. I actually just notice different levels of lag VS certain opponents. I have played over 20-25 community Madden games already and I realized that vs Talk_of_NY the game is a little choppy, and when I played Peyton's Adamantium Neck it was smooth as could be. So I don't know howq much opponent location or connection factor in either.

Turn off your headset when you play, sometimes I accidently leave it on and the game lags worse

FYI I've yet to complete a Connected Careers game...

Seems lag has gotten worse. And while my connection is bad, it's never stuttering bad with disconnects.
