Did you use another older game to agree to the terms of service before trying to go online?

No I did not any games that you can suggest? When I went to the EA only chat service they told me the servers are down.

Get a copy of The Orange Box and accept the agreement on there. Then you can play online.

This confirmed to work? Will buy it in an instant if I think it will work. Why would EA say the servers are shut?

Yes, I did this with my 2nd account to boost with last week and it works. It's shut for people that can't use this method as the game will crash on startup if you haven't accepted the agreement, that's probably why they said it.

Thank you so much for the help!

Yes Orange Box works like Santa said plus Bad Company 1 (has trophies) and Medal of Honor Airborne. Accept "old" terms and conditions these games had and you should connect online in Merc 2.

Ok, first off thanks to @HuntingFever for his guide. Very useful. I've done a bit of testing and wanted to post my results. 

 

So from my research the game launched region locked but a later patch enabled cross region coop. So far I have tried playing with someone from Ireland with a EU copy and it would not work. I tried playing with someone from Germany with another NA copy and it did not work. I've tried playing with my second copy on my second console and am able to join myself no problems whatsoever. (I am in the United States) Already popped a coop trophy. However, it is not going to be easy to solo play with two characters for the trophies. I still need to test with another NA player to see if it works. I am going to be testing it here soon to confirm and update this post. 

 

It should be noted that the failed attempts were tried multiple times with the different methods outlined in the guide and nothing worked.

Here's how I did it, if it helps anyone. I rented Mercs 2 again to see if I could find a partner...couldn't connect to anyone from anywhere(this is after following all the steps listed in that thread). I then rented Airborne...my main account didn't let me accept any terms, so I'm guessing I was fine there. I then used my other ps3 and accepted terms on my alt account, then rented a 2nd copy of Mercs 2. Both of my ps3's could connect after that, main account with my save....alt account with no save. For the Nothin but a good time I just called in that armored vehicle with the cannon on top, easy because the co op partner just needs to be in the car. For the airstrikes, I called in a multiples of the same few airstrikes with no luck. Then I called in one of each in the same session and both accounts got the trophy, even though my alt never did anything. Good luck guys, hope this helps.

Well then maybe I will do this solo... lol, thanks @ThatDrunkGuy!

 

I read your comment in the session also. Very interesting. I wonder if it has to do anymore with not the same region, but the same home network? I connected to my alt no problem also.

Just confirmed that Orange Box still does work (for connecting to the EA Servers).

 

If anyone has any insight into how to join a co-op session; please share!

Is there a list of EA games that will let me get back online for this one? I played it like 8 years ago and never finished it, but want to get the plat. Just trying to avoid getting another shitty EA game in the process.

 

EDIT: Wait Just found the guide at https://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/mercenaries-2-world-in-flames/80649-listen-up-people-servers-still-up-always-have-been.html (thanks to user HuntingFever)

You cannot connect with anyone. You must have two PS3s and do this via LAN (on your same home network).
