Mass Effect 3 Connection Issues

This post and this one on the BioWare Social Network have complaints from players encountering errors when attempting to play Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Most of this seems to involve being told they require an "online pass," which does not exist for the PC version of the game, as it is used as a way of combating used console game sales. There are also indications that those who own the From Ashes DLC are not even able to play the game in singleplayer mode. There are posts from players claiming they've been told BioWare is working on the problem. Thanks Mark.

The message is of course incorrect and could be saying "I like turtles." for all that it means. It is choking on some server messaging and this has nothing to do with DRM or the like. Once we wrangle the errant server under control those affected will be able to play again. Thankfully it isn't affecting many customers, but we almost have it all resolved at this time.
