People seem to be forgetting that EA Access is more than just early access to Madden 15. Its discounts on current DLC, future DLC, current games and future games and the service offers Madden 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield and Peggle to play right now for no additional cost than what it takes to sign up for the service. So, the service works in more place than it falters.

I totally get it though. As i said earlier, Iv got access and iv got the game downloaded, id like to be able to play the thing.
This isnt the case. I would be just as mad if this was Sony, MS or 2k doing this. I'm amazed that there are people trying to rationalize this. I bought something and one of the key components of what I bought isnt working and we have no idea when it will start working. Its really that simple.

I can't wait until these times are cut down in the future. It's the one thing that I hate about next-gen. I understand multiple people downloading the same game online may slow things down, but if I'm using a disc it shouldn't take as long as it does.

There are no excuses. Things should work, but for as long as I can remember, the technology for these types of things is always troublesome.
I will say I never had an issue with Season Ticket and I bought that when it first came out.

Download times that long are b/c of your internet. I can download a full game on my xbox one with disc in 20 minutes or so. That is unrelated tho so I appologize.

Seems like a licensing issue, I'm not expecting we'll have to redownload it.

Oh yea I get it. Im just stating that the service is more than just Madden 15, rather or not thats why you signed up.

And again, in EA's defense, they didnt say you'd be able to play the game at any specific time, they just stated when the trial would start to open up throughout the day. They were very, unspecific, so to say, in that regard.
