Maintenance for the week of May 02:
• [IN PROGRESS] North American PC/Mac megaserver for patch maintenance – May 04, 6:00AM EDT (11:00 BST)
• [IN PROGRESS] European PC/Mac megaserver for patch maintenance – May 04, 11:00 BST (6:00AM EDT)
Got timeout message and as instructed Logged out before 18.00 and got a minor upload. Then restarted and still cannot login 18.58. Their published messages are confusing. Is Europe dependent on the North American mega server or not. Why such a confusing message as timeout. Why not "server is down for maintenance". Better than the usual error code 103 I suppose. Whole system, forum etc is under stress !!!!
Yep, been trying repeatedly for almost an hour now, ever since server came back. If there is a queue, would be nice to see that and be left in it instead of constant "timeout/retry"
Mind you, have not had much better success with forums.... someone's scalability testing seems pants!!!
well after 1 and a half hours since the eu servers supposedly "came back up" and constant "login time outs", the launcher suddenly downloaded a patch, and suddenly, I can now log in. Not very reassuring from a technical stand point
deleting stuff from the ProgramData folder and host * files fixed the issue temperately...then while playing i got an error message and got kicked out...tried logging back in and it went back to the "Login Timeout" error on the login...trying the ProgramData fix again, might work
I didnt delete any files to get mine working, however the launcher doesnt update whilst you are trying to log in. So when I fully quit the game, the launcher sprang into life and patched. However, I had tried this every 30 mins or so (fully quitting) so it wasn't just that. I strongly suspect insufficient capacity on the patch servers
