So for the past few days I've been getting this error pretty much non-stop. I'm from the UK so I shouldn't be too far away from the megaservers host, and my internet is solid and fast. I've managed to get in and play a few times but mostly when I load up the game I can't even get to the character selection screen. This issue's been around for a while, but lately it's making the game impossible to play, and I'm getting quite annoyed by it as I've just renewed my ESO Plus subscription.

I've tried the Xbox NA server, and it seems I can load in on there pretty much instantly, hell, I'd start playing that server more consistently if ZOS would make Crown Store purchases (houses, crown crate items, general store stuff, etc) global instead of server bound (which is a whole seperate big issue.) I've also had friends have this same issue, so it's not just me, they suggest workarounds like relaunching the game when I get the issue or to keep trying - which doesn't really work. It feels like I've got like 2.5% chance of actually getting into the server.
If any support needs more detail on EXACTLY what happens before and during the error: I load up the game, pass the intro screens then pass the start screen, it brings up the MOTD screen with the server selection and my region is set to Europe, I click Play and I see "Loading..." on the left for between 20-40 seconds, then the error: "LOGIN FAILED Connection to server timed out Please try again" pops up, then I try again and get the same thing. Hope this helps somewhat.
