I think this is a common problem, that some here have gotten a fix for here. I'll try and alert someone to help.

Hi Brett,

It probably didn't have anything directly to do with the Windows 10 April 2018 update, but yes it appears that your IP address had changed. I have updated the IP address to the new one that was used to make this forum post, so you should be good to go now.

If something like that happens in the future, the information at EA117.com/access is what Mali and Crash are referring to, for identifying the new IP address and sending us a private message so that we can get you updated.

The Windows 10 April 2018 update did cause some new weird "transitions" as you launch the game and it switches from showing the Windows desktop to showing the game. But it has still been successful here for playing, for what it's worth.

Microsoft did put out some updates already for the Windows 10 April 2018 release, so if you only just now received the Windows 10 April 2018 release itself, try running Windows Update again right now, and pull down whatever additional updates they have. Because it does seem a bit smoother now compared to when the Windows 10 April 2018 update first came out, so maybe they improved this a bit.

-Trench
