Can't play BF4 with a UK VPN?

So a couple of days ago I started to use a VPN just because of everything happening in America and around the world. Anyway, so I start using the VPN and suddenly I get an error when I try connecting to a server, "You were disconnected from EA Online [1]".

If I disable the VPN there isn't a problem but I was just wondering if anyone else using a VPN was getting this error. I use one of the free VPN's off the freevpnaccess.com website.

Thanks for any help or suggestions and yes I've tried Google...
-Joe

It isn't really for BF4 it's just cos of all the torrents I download and it's been pretty annoying turning the VPN on and off to play Battlefield.

So with all the "stuff" happening in America you decide to use a free VPN service to block your torrent activities using freevpnaccess.com, even though I use torrents legit ones I might add (patches/driver packs/linux distros) I would never use a free VPN service.

You also might want to reconsider your choice freevpnaccess.com is based in Dallas, Texas basically all you're doing is there job for them

It depends on which VPN are you using because I have faced similar issues and RadeonHDx is right to turn on and off VPN accordingly but You won't face such issues with good VPNs. I'm using NordVPN without facing issues while downloading or streaming. You can read some other key features regarding NordVPN in this product review: https://www.allbestvpn.com/nordvpn-review/ or any other similar source. It offers multiple features at a low price like Smartplay for streaming, automatic kill switch, DNS leak protection, other features. No regrets since I opted it.

I think he is just here to get free adverts out. Note he's brought up a thread about VPN (we don't have many on here) and has replied linking to a product.

I could be wrong of course but I doubt it.
