After seeing Dawid Pracki's post I decided to change my name to DaveTranny (nickname, I'm not actually trans lmao, just my last name) and... guess what? I got an error saying Invalid Account Name for the correct credentials, and the normal 'password combo doesn't exist'. I went through about 4-5 hours trying to get help from EA, but all they did was redirect me to the update (already at), tell me to reinstall the whole game or tell me to install 3rd party software such as ccleaner. Since you guys seem more focused on Burnout and obviously more helpful, I was wondering if you could give me any tips on how to do this? I'm running RV2, but VP and DGI don't work either. I can play offline and my key is valid so I'm not a pirate or anything.

Give it a day or two and it will start working again. This problem was encountered by me a month ago (http://www.burnouthints.com/apps/forums/topics/show/13428858-cannot-log-into-bp). Shame that whenever you change your name, you have to atleast wait a day for it to work again.

Thanks man, glad to know I can still play. If you persist enough with EA's crappy advisors, they somehow give you a list of games you can pick as a substitute for your game - mine was BF4 lol
