However, the American video game company seemed to be going through a hiccup with its login system. Read this article to know more about the issue and how to fix it.
EA Account login issue
If you are a regular player of EA titles, you would know that a sign in is required to access your favorite EA games. It is the most basic part of launching a game, so every player would expect it to be a smooth process. However, that has not been the case with EA’s login portal.
Several users have reported that the portal is not allowing them to login. Moreover, a code 100 comes up along with the unable to login message. This has been happening in the Play Station 4 mostly. According to reports, EA servers have gone down multiple times the past few years. Many competitive players have suffered because of the same. No one likes a game that disconnects in between; that’s a horrible experience and a source of anxiety.
We are investigating reports of some players being unable to connect to EA Servers, and we will provide updates in this thread when available.
