I can connect to EAs servers but it comes up with:
"We're sorry but you are not permitted to register an online pass which is required to access all online features."
I've read that even people on OFW have had that problem, and solved it using their online passes through the PS Store. If we could buy the online pass through the PS Store that'd be great, but there's no option for it (even though there is supposed to be).
Another post I've read says your account (he doesn't specify whether he means PSN or EA) has to be the same region as your game.
The game is actually supposed to have a free 2 day trial for online features.
There is an apparent crack for the online pass for the US version of the game, but I haven't read anyone say it works.
Unless your problem is that you can't connect to the servers AT ALL. In which case I can't help you.
