FIFA 15 UT server problems due to EA Feb 11 maintenance

The FIFA 15 Ultimate Team servers are down right now according to reports coming in from both Twitter and status update websites. The football game is played by millions around the world and this is prime time UK daytime, although that only counts for those not at work or school.

We first heard about FIFA 15 UT servers going down early on Feb 11, 2015, in the morning from Product Reviews readers. After checking the Down Today website, it’s also clear that problems are taking place that seem to focus on getting connected to EA servers in the UK at least.

Also, checking the official EA Sports FIFA 15 channel reveals EA servers are unavailable due to maintenance taking place today (Feb 11). It’s unclear if players in the USA are also impacted, but you can see the said tweet below in the screenshot.

Are you impacted by the FIFA 15 server maintenance today and if so, what country are you in when seeing servers down? Hopefully, this maintenance doesn’t turn into an outage for many hours, as we have seen in the past. Reported problems this week could also be a reason for taking servers offline, which may fix issues players had earlier in the week.

Update: The FIFA 15 maintenance is scheduled for 3 hours and the times are 9AM to 12NOON, GMT. You should notice the downtime on PS4, Xbox One, and last generation platforms. If the downtime lasts longer than scheduled, then share a comment below.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTW 13

EA Sports have released the 13th edition of their Ultimate Team team of the week and the main headline is that Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is joined up front by none other than PSG talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The big Swede returned from injury over the weekend and he helped his team to a 2-1 victory over Nantes, extending their unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 season.

Ronaldo was in imperious form as he scored a hat-trick to take his tally for the season in La Liga to 23 goals, an astonishing feat.

The third member of this fearsome front line is West Ham United forward Andy Carroll who terrorised the Swansea City defence on Sunday, scoring two goals and assisting one more during the Hammers’ 3-1 win.

In goal is Hull City keeper Allan McGregor who performed heroics during his side’s 0-0 draw with West Brom over the weekend which included saving a penalty.

The defence is led by Mats Hummels who led his Borussia Dortmund side to a much needed win against Hoffenheim on Friday which lifted the club off the bottom of the Bundesliga.

He is joined in the three man defence by Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez with the 19 year old in sensational form over the past couple of weeks with the La Liga champions not conceding a single goal since November 22. He was crucial in their 2-0 win away at Elche on the weekend.

The final member of the defence is Thomas Heurtaux who helped Udinese keep out Inter Milan at the San Siro as they secured 2-1 victory.

FIFA never seem to really pay much attention to things like coherence when they pick formations and this week the entire midfield is made up of wingers. The men actually out wide are Ivan Persic, whose Wolfsburg side kept up their impressive assault on league leaders Bayern Munich with a 3-1 victory over Hannover, and Andre Carrillo whose Sporting Lisbon team won their second league game in a row by beating Boavista 3-1.

In the middle of the park are Tranquillo Barnetta who registered a hat-trick of assists as Schalke crushed Stuttgart 4-0 and Balazs Dzsudzsak who registered a goal and an assist as he helped Dynamo Moscow move up to third in the Russian Premier League.

The front three all had excellent weekends and frankly we can’t wait to try them out together as we are sure that it is not a front three that anyone has ever combined together. Obviously Carroll has to be the focal point of the team but Ibrahimovic isn’t exactly blessed with pace so you may want to use him and Ronaldo as attacking midfielders.

On the bench we see a number of lesser players who had excellent weekends but Newcastle United fans will be delighted to see Papiss Cisse make the cut after his two goals helped the Magpies end Chelsea’s unbeaten run on Saturday.
