Login issues (08.28.12)

ZenonSethZenonSeth Tempe, CAPosts: 128Member

I haven't been able to login for the past 2 hours or so. Twice I was able to get the game to launch, but pressing Play on a character just results in "Unable to reach the login server" message, and eventually kicks me out to the launcher.

I know this was an issue on pre-launch, but I thought that Anet was prepared for the number of people at launch.

No one else has posted threads about this, so I'm wondering - am I the only one having this issue?

    Just got in, but the game is doomed.  Launch day and nobody is around ;)

    That reminds me of the old joke: No one drives in New York anymore - there's too much traffic.

    I too can't log in.

    Everything was fine, I just started today and I played for about 2 hours maybe, then came the new build and since that I've been getting error 42 when I try to log in. Expect one time when I got into the game but then, just like you, I got the error message when I clicked 'play'.

    Maybe they just stole the server hardware since the muricans are waking up :)

    Error 42 is rapidly becoming the new Error 37

    Any coders here that could set up a nice monitoring tool that sends me an SMS or email when the login servers come back up so I dont have to sit in front of my computer spamming the login button?

    Well, at least they're working on it, that's all I can ask for I guess...

    The login servers aren't down - they're just overwhlemed with requests. So even if such a tool is made, if it gets through to the login server, there's no guarantee you will.

    It's also counter-productive to have an automated tool like that, since spamming login requests is the equivalent of a DDoS attack - it will just slow down the servers even more.

    Anyone who has got in I have to ask has the market been running?

    You don't know that.  either way now like Saturday  thy should have expected more requests and be ready.

    On the one hand I have to assume that it's extremely difficult to plan for how many people will try to play on launch day or so many top companies would have it figured it out.  On the other hand, Anet has known the excitement and hype for this game for a LONG time, so part of me does believe that they shouldn't get a pass for the log-in issues.    :/

    Same here, I take a break of 10min, and then... can't login :(

    How do you do that? Care to teach me? That would be helpful )

    got into character select about three times now but when i press play it says it cant find login server and after a couple of tries it kicks me out to desktop.

    weird thing is a looked at the server select page and loads of them are full so people are playing.

  • bunnyhopperbunnyhopper LondonPosts: 2,751Member

    There have been other threads about this, no you are not the only one having log in issues. It seems to be a wide spread problem for EU/UK users.

     

    According to the official twitter they have been "aware" of the issue for a few hours now.

    You Europeans need to change your voltage over to 110! :)

    Hope it gets fixed soon for you!

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Prolly the same issue as on Saturday morning with pre-launch. Now being evening in Europe, ppl come from school/work and can finally start to play. 100.000's are trying to logon and... *BOOM* logon server down.

    And I hoped ANet would have learned from Saturday...

    Common when servers are experiencing high volumes, causing connectivity issues.


    Good news for Anet, bda news for excitided players xD


    Damnit i just wanted to continue my story line and checking out The char zone as a Human :(
    They need to create overflow for an overflow with a backup server on backup servers for backup server for a double overflow server !! >oO<

    Not sure it can be attributed purely to numbers. The client went down for a new update earlier in the day. The log in server got "borked" straight after that update, well before 5-6pm UK peak time.

    list dont show actual ppl playing but players who made that server their homebase, hence can be full even if nobody plays atm... on the other hand its true that some ppl have been playing during the last 3 hours eventhou loggserver its burning.

  • PsyMike3dPsyMike3d AthensPosts: 388Member Uncommon

    The game client is unable to gain access to the log-in sever at this time.

    this is really getting annoying... and the most annoying thing is that the "auction house" is down all the time.....

    Such an awsome game....why the are failing so bad with server issues?
