Hi there. If you have been experiencing this problem in the last couple of days, then do not worry. This is a global problem. I experienced it a couple of days ago, and of the others that I talked to, they have experienced it as well. My system just freezes up, once I click "Internet." To get around this you should download: Xfire Once you have Xfire downloaded, you must join the servers through Xfire, and you should avoid the problem. There is probably something wrong with EA's servers, which is why it is not allowing you to join. What server do you usually play on?
