    I am not sure what is up with EA's servers tonight, but its garbage. I just ran a speed test and my net is fine, and I just had the most effed up game ever. Completely unplayable, and I didn't want to play it after the first quarter. Put the chew clock on and played the rest of the game out, although I REALLY wanted to just stop playing all together. I just sent a message to adam from EA about the shitty servers, hopefully they will look into it.

    I am really curious as to just how many people got disconnects tonight? We had 2 jump in during my user game saying they got disconnected, I am wondering how many others this happened too.

    No disrespect but I'm still amazed how when something goes wrong with NCAA or Madden Adam or Ian are always the "answer" or downfall... poor dudes... they get plastered with messages (pretty sure your not the only one who sends him msgs) for shit they can't control....

    I agree, they don't have to answer to anyone. So I wouldn't expect a reply.

    Nautica, as for your question... I had no lag issues last night with both Madden and FIFA games.

    no i completely understand, but they make themselves available to the consumers as a direct line of contact for when something is wrong. Now i have had extensive chats with Adam in the past and this is the first time I have sent him a message about something that is wrong. I am not one of those guys who constantly bombards someone with nonsense.

    here is the thing too, the game that i played last night was the worst experience that i have ever had. The other player had well over 20+ broken tackles, 99% of all tackles would end up as that horrible horse collar tackle animation, and there were at least a half a dozen times that I would be standing in the pocket and mashing a button to pass for a good 2 seconds and still no pass would be thrown. My players would move on their own too as there were instances that i would go to make a cut and they would continue towards the sideline without me able to control them. After the first half, I just put chew clock on and ran almost every play just to try to get the game over with as soon as possible as I don't agree with quitting a game. My connection was fine, it was the damn EA servers. I checked my connection afterward and was downloading at 19mbs per second.

    I played two user games last night and the lag wasn't all that bad, but I did notice that I couldn't cut effectively when I ran the ball. All I could really do was run straight line and had a really hard time hitting any holes. I thought it was just my controller's left stick being worn out or something. Maybe it was a server thing....?

    From my understanding of Xbox Live (from playing with the XNA game studio tool that Microsoft puts out), the EA servers do not actually pass traffic between players.

    They are used for matching up players, but after that the protocol is P2P, so packets are sent directly between you and your opponent. Post game, results are stored on the EA servers. It is the same for CPU games, except it is all local. The game does do some XBL reporting (that's how you see what people are playing), but the quality of your game was effected by the poor connection between your opponent and yourself. That is why you can play two different people back to back and have extremely different results. There are players in my leagues I just know will be a laggy connection and others are rock solid.

    Anyway, just sharing what little bit of knoweledge I think I have.:)

    that is something that I didn't know, thank you for chiming in on that shaun. I still don't understand why the gameplay was so horrible though. It was nothing the other user was doing, but it was the worst game experiences I have ever had with NCAA.

    Remember there are a ton of routers between you and your opponent...all it takes is one bad hop.

    Shaun, last night when we played the game hesitated a couple times. Not enough to effect anything, though. Did you see that as well?

    Yea, one was in the first quarter where I hit your QB on third and 5 and he completed it to the diving receiver.

    Yeah, the ball just kind of sat in the air and then all of the sudden the receiver is on the ground with the ball.

    Jugg and I played a hard fought game in C2C only to disconnect in the 4th quarter with the score 20-14.
