Hi guys!

University time is dawning on me and I concluded it's the best time to finally get myself a laptop. At first I wanted an ultrabook to just take to class and take notes, run some graphic programs, surf the web and maybe play some games. However I think this might be a good opportunity and replace my not-so top of the line desktop entirely. I figured I wouldn't really want to be bothered with transferring all of my laptop notes/documents to my desktop and back, and I don't really use my desktop for very demanding stuff (as far as performance goes), so I'd just rather hook my laptop up to my 24" monitor and have all my files in one place.

So I wanted your guys help since the community has already helped me a lot when choosing gadget hardware (Nexus 4 going strong for the 2nd year in my pocket and still one of my best purchases).

Here are the things I'd like my laptop to do/be/have:

-have a decent battery life (6+ hours of moderately straining use like surfing the web managing docs etc)

-have at least 1920x1080 resolution

-be able to be hooked up to my monitor (which has hdmi and dvi)

-be able to run graphic design related programs like autocad

-be at least 13"

-be able to run games that come out until ~2017 on at least low settings (nothing like CoD15 or Crysis 5 but basically if Civ VI or the new StarCraft II expansion comes out I'd like to be able to run it without my computer exploding)

-price range: $1500 is the uncrossable threshold

Any advice would be much appreciated. If you have further questions/suggestions fire away.

I hope this is posted in the proper forum, if not mods feel free to move this.

Okay, I've visited the EA forums and it seems like this is not an isolated phenomenon.

[EDITED March 20th]

Our team is working to apply a patch that we feel will provide a better connection to the Microsoft servers and should resolve some of the issues being reported within this thread. The patch is currently being tested and will be deployed as soon as we verify the fixes being applied.

Our team will continue to collect the data posted here and keep trying to isolate possible issues.

Seems like I have nothing to do but wait...

I've tried reistalling the game and opening ports but nothing works :/

Adding firewall exemptions also doesn't work :/

Poland. The ping at the data center server I'm using (West EU) is 40, so not that bad I presume.

I go the game today (20th) as a birthday present and was looking forward to spending the evening with it but after like one and a half hours of reconnecting, changing data centers, resetting the game, the computer and my router, the game still can't connect. It begins with 'retrieving matchmaking list', then it counts up 'attempting connection (x out of 10)', repeats these two steps, and is stuck on 'initializing...' forever.

I've heard that you can try spamming enter to disconnect and reconnect rapidly but after many attempts it's still a no go.

So basically I'm pissed because I have no idea what's going on, whether I should keep trying, skip playing the game today and return tommorow, or if this is some major large scale issue.

Have any of you guys been experiencing similar issues? What did you do that worked?

Thanks duders

Hey guys. So Christmas coming up and apparently people want to know what to get me. I had been thinking about a decent gaming mouse for quite some time, so I figured this might be a good time to get one. Could you recommend a decent gaming mouse within the $100-$120 price range?
-I play mostly shooters like TF2, however nothing esports level.
-A button to slow down the speed for aiming DTS would be nice.
-I would absolutely LOVE if it was wireless, however I want to look at all the options

Thanks duders.

Also damn, it has been a while.
