.....Man EA really needs to fix this.
For the record I work at EA and test games there so I know what I am talking about.
For the most part its been ok lately but it sure sucks if you are in a long tournament and if somewhere in that series you drop connection to EA servers. Cause when you complete and win that tourny you will get the unlock but the stats and online leader boards WILL NOT update if you dropped ea servers once in there even if you reconnect.
Its not even because I have a bad connection or whatever else people might throw out there, I havent dropped off psn its usually just the EA server here and there disconnects but when in a tournament it screws you
