Due to the tremendous launch of SOCOM Confrontation and large number of simultaneous players connecting, we are experiencing some server load issues. We are aware of the current server issues and we are actively looking into them. We will have these issues resolved as soon as possible.
SOCOM: Confrontation Online Team
And right now, as I am writing this at 1:07am EST, the servers are working a lot better and I was just able to play a match without any issues.
This is typical when it comes to a new online game. Look back and think of an online game that worked flawlessly at launch. I can't think of one. So just give them a couple days to get the server load issues ironed out before pulling out all your hair.
