I get this error as soon as the single player campaign has finished loading, and then the game crashes.

Not sure you have to change your BF3 installation

Just go to Control Panel and choose power settings (or options)

I'm using Win7, but there are equivalents in XP and Vista

You may have to check Custom Configuration or Advanced Settings or something like that.

Look for Hard Drive and where it says "Turn off hard drive after" make sure it is disabled or put in a larger number.

I used 60 minutes and unless I'm playing a really high ticket server, I do not have problems on the map change any more

Tried this - game still crashes with a 'Game disconnected: something went wrong.' after every freaking map change................

4gb of ram here so that shouldn't be the issue..

Weeeee fun fun fun.

Game disconnected: something went wrong.

Atleast tell us what went wrong so us techs can figure out how to tweek something and play. this is crazy


Black eye for EA dev team.
For a big time game producer they should atleast have a server dedicated for a team of devs to beta new patches before they put it out. I mean come on get your stuff together and make it right.

I'm getting this error message quite often, and I'm never able to finish a high ticket game. Outside high ticket rounds it happens maybe every 3\4 match. What happens just before the game kicks me out is that I can see underground for a few seconds, then I'm kicked to desktop with the lame message "something went wrong" My specs are AMD630 2,8gHz x4, HD6950 2gb ram and 4gb ram. I know people with worse speccs and they don't have this problem..

Game disconnected: something went wrong.

Twice today already, earlier this week it was "Game disconnected: You were kicked from the game", and before that the more usual (for me) "Game disconnected: Your connection to the server timed out."

I'm hoping this is testing to replicate the errors causing this, and that they will fix these pain in the arse disconnects in the next patch, or I am never touching EA with my money again.

I AM FUCKED OFF PAYING TO BE A FUCKING BETA TESTER, SORT YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS OUT.

{edit} And a'fucking-"Game disconnected: something went wrong!-gain, wtf?

Same issue here... 8gb DDR3 1600... amount of ram does'nt matter and uninstalling PB and re-updating PB. Sometime game works, sometime not.

That's the last EA/DICE game i buy, WORD ! After the MoH Deception and my fake ban on BFBC2... i really getting upset.

The single Player campaign is also crashing for me. The map I am trying to play is Operation Guillotine. Always crashes when I run up the stairs before the first minute of gameplay, exiting the canal so I can move in to flank the first machionce gun nest.
On a side note, wtf.

This is happening to me as well, I stopped playing for about a week, came back to it this weekend, and I guess one of the updates caused it. I've tried Chrome and Firefox incase it was a problem with the browser log-in, reset all in-game settings to default, lowered performance settings, updated PB, disabled antivirus/firewall, all to no avail. Guess I'll just quit playing for another week or so to see if they get around to an update.

It's an exceptional game, and I love it, and I can somewhat respect what they tried to do with it in terms of the battlelog, but I really have to question their decision to make battlelog mandatory rather than including some sort of in-game browser/GUI. Or at the very least not trying it on a less popular franchise first. This is a flagship game for them, and yea, that means the greatest demographic to try something new, but unless it's 100% flawless at launch... I dunno. This is frustrating.

Game Disconnected: something went wrong. Single player, resume campaign, end of loading level screen after cut shot. If I performed at this level in my job, I would expect to get sacked and yet it seems to be common and accepted practice. Maybe it's time we all just went back to WOW and forget these over hyped and under performing FPS franchise's

@Reaver-au, please help me clarify. Do you mean you are experiencing this issue while playing Single player?

I've started getting this the past couple of days, never had it before, and in MP.

It seems to follow a pattern: 2 minutes into the server there is a lockup which it recovers from and continues, then another 2 minutes it does what it would usually do before a "your connection timed out" but drops to "Game disconnected: something went wrong" in the browser. I noticed the pattern last night, and managed to bully myself through the errors and play for an hour or so eventually.

This occurrence is new to my game, the error and way it happens have only started happening since yesterday.


This is fucking disgraceful for such a premium quality game franchise, fucking disgraceful.

Indeed. It's a shame that such a great game have those extremely frustrating and somewhat lame errors.

Since I bought the game, it always crashes in the map change with this stupid "Something went wrong" message.

Sometimes I got kicked for no reason, sometimes I just can't connect to servers due to "You are disconnected from EA online" or something.

I was thinking that it was due to my low RAM spec, 2 gb, but I'm seeing that people with 8 gb are having the same issue.

Even then, the minimum requirement is 2 gb, so it SHOULD work with it, or else, they need to change the minimum specs.

Again, it's a shame that DICE/EA still haven't fixed those things, as lots of people are having those issues.
