What happened here? I was planning to play online with a friend for Family Game Night when I see that everytime I enter Play via Xbox Live, a message says "The EA server is unavailable at this time." Who's responsible for this BS? Why is online no more? Well, it won't matter about my achievements since I have all 91 of them. Someone please explain this glitch for the EA server BS?shock

Because EA feels they're special and bullied MS into letting them run their own servers for any of their online games. Because of this they can kill the servers whenever they want as long as they post a 30 day notice (It's in the ELUA).
I don't care what you believe in, just believe in it.

I was gonna say "sucks to be you", but at least you've finished the game and wont get stuck with an unobtainable scrabble achievement.

At least I got my World Wide Web achievement for that DLC game Scrabble before all this. I had all 91 achievements before the online is gone for this game.

Some of their games don't even require a 30 day notice unfortunately. As for bullying MS... not really, they just said "Hey, we're gonna host our own servers, OK?" MS: "Go for it". MS just didn't give a shit, they don't specifically try to get companies to use their servers.

Yeah EA doesn't bully anything out MS. And plus if they host their own servers then that saves MS money or makes them money but it does not make them lose money that is for sure.

Yeah, EA is helping Microsoft by hosting servers. Sadly Microsoft doesn't care that EA rapes us gamers
