Yeah, this and a few past poor debuts on Origin got me curious about what the heck EA's business analytics group actually does and whether or their CTO thinks that maybe they might be put to use giving at least some rough forcast to the demands of certain game launches and online promotions.

It's like they use the numbers to inform and justify strategies based on the potential hugeness of the market but they don't give those numbers to their IT people. Luckily though this is the sort of up tick in traffic that is very easy to absorb after the fact if you have the resources to pay for it - though it can be almost seamless if you prepare for it ahead of time.
