We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Datapad is working perfectly fine for me, I can't connect to the game servers though as I'm at work right now!
The Galaxy at War servers can be "dodgy" at times, if it's not connecting now, it's likely just a blip and it will be back soon. My connection via Datapad is working fin enough, so should be back online.
I'm thinking an official Server Status page either on the BSN or via EA's support page should be implemented so people can have a central go to place to check up on things.
Can be similar to the Xbox Live status
page here on Xbox.com, or even something like the new Diablo 3 Server Status
page that shows whether things are online, offline or are down due to maintenance.
Would no doubt save the hassle of having to go to public forums and asking other people who might or might not be experiencing the same thing. With that said, it is sometimes down due to maintenance so try again if you haven't already after a little while.
