Since the NA server maintenance I have been trying to log and getting the above errors. Does anyone have a solution? Can I do anything at my end?

A lot of my friends are not experiencing these error.

    Hi, folks. Would you folks mind attempting the below steps for us?
    1. Close both the game and the launcher
    2. Open the game installation directory
    3. Open the folder named "Launcher"
    4. Inside the "Launcher" folder, there is a folder named "ProgramData"
    5. Rename the "ProgramData" folder to "ProgramDataBackup"
    6. Open the launcher and download update
    7. Click "Play"

    Please let us know if this helps to resolve the issue!

    Hi, no this did not work and I got a 210 error when trying to launch. Any fixes yet?

    If the above steps do not work, we recommend that you try and repair the client by using the below steps:
    1. Highlight the title of the game client that needs to be repaired by clicking on it
    2. Click on "Game Options" (near the center of the launcher)
    3. From the "Game Options" drop-down, select "Repair"
    4. Allow the launcher to examine all the files for the game
    5. If any files are found to have problems, the launcher will re-download those files

    Hi,

    the same problem occurs for me since I downloaded the update this morning.
    I tried both solutions TristanK suggested but the problem (always 201 error a second after I click 'Login') persists.

    Also in the client it says: Could not retrieve announcements. Not sure if that does matter in some way...

    Thanks for letting us know, @markus.konradb16_ESO. We recommend that you first please try running ESO as administrator. Next, we recommend that you add the game and our account website (account.elderscrollsonline.com) as exceptions to your firewall and anti-virus programs.

    Please keep in mind that if you are using an internet connection at a business or university, they may have another firewall in place on the network. If this is the case, please come back and let us know.

    Hi TristanK,

    thanks for the quick response.

    I already had all exes in the ESO folder set as exceptions in Comodo Internet Security Premium. After changing the parameters from user-defined settings that worked before to "allowed application" the game seems to run now.

    In case further problems occurs I'll let everyone here know.

    All best.

    I am also experiencing error 200. I've tried all of these solutions, but still not working for me. I haven't been able to access the game since downloading the client a few days ago though. Any ideas? Also, I'm on Mac.

    My girlfriend has the same error. 2 pc's 2 accounts my account works fine on my pc, her account works on my pc. Both our accounts generate the 201 (7:1:1016:1006) error when trying to log in on her pc. Also i've noticed that when i start the client, my client status (shown in bottom left corner) will say "complete" on her pc the client stays on "initializing".
    When i start the game on the log in screen i have an announcement displayed (the in-game mail one) when i start the game on her pc it will say "could not retrieve announcements".

    I've tried swhitching router ports (were both on the same network) and rebooting, Even with only her pc connected, no results. So im kinda ruling out my connection.
    I've tried several repairs without succes.
    I ran the program as admin, virus scanner/firewall etc disabled. No succes.

    Ohh and the game on my pc thats working has version 1.0.0.962092 is the same as on my girlfriends pc, so i dont think its an update problem.

    Update: the client on her pc now also has the "complete" status in the bottom left corner, but still "could not retrieve announcements" and the same loging error in-game.
    Also i have tried the "programdata" suggestion, without succes unfortunately.

    Thanks for all the help and suggestions. Mine was a firewall issue that has now been fixed by adding exceptions. Thanks again

    For most people it turns out it is a firewall issue or a commodo anti virus (sandbox mode) issue. Hope it helps

    Tried all the suggestions. I finally get to login and within 5 minutes the game kicks me out. After I try to get back in, it gives me errors 200 or 201. This is getting ridiculous.

    200's followed by 108's. Let's see it fixed and then compensation for the subscribers. Ridiculous for a game out this long, even for a game in Beta. NA Server for PC.

    Yup getting a mix of 108s and 200s with different subcodes here. Validate my account, renamed the ProgramData directory, etc. -- nothing helps.

    As this thread is from three years ago we will be closing it as a necro. There were recently server issues over the weekend that would have caused login issues. If you are still having issues logging in, please start a new thread.
