error 201

I'm getting an Error 201 (7:4:420:1006)

I'm logging in to the eso site to my account information ok and it shows active and all that good stuff....

is there perhaps a log file if it's a connection issue on where the login problem might be occurring? or anything else I might be able to try and troubleshoot?

    I just came here to post the same thing. I have been getting Error 201 on two separate accounts in the past 15 minutes. It also says below the login button 'Cannot retrieve announcements". I tried a Repair Client and have tried both 32 bit and 64 bit versions to no avail. Are the servers down for anyone else?

    ***Update --- I can login to the PTS without any difficulty.

    Same thing here! I am getting Error 201 no matter what I type into the password and it happens immediately, as if the game isn't even trying to communicate with the server. What's the deal?!

    I checked everywhere for server status and I don't see anything anywhere that the server is down or there is a maintenance....
    WHATS GOING ON?!

    Same with me after attempting to log in 3 times in a row. Tried once again and still not seeing announcements. I can log into PTS just fine though.

    My guess would be a DDOS attack on login servers... or they forgot to feed the server hamsters.

    Same thing here. Getting the 201 error when trying to log in and "Could not retrieve announcements" down below. Tried both the 32 and 64 bit clients.

    Same here. I want my special tiger.

    I am reinstalling the game and hopefully that fixes it.

    Edit: They are aware of the problem. Thank you and I hope this gets resolved soon.

    same here.

    fwiw, the control settings on the character i was using were reset to default, for some reason. had to go through and reset them all.

    staying online was also a problem from the time i first logged on, two hours or so ago. i got kicked to login on about half the load screens and out of nowhere, just for good measure. it's been a common problem, but it seems to be getting much MORE common, lately.

    I was getting the 201 error this morning, until around 11:30 AM Pacific Time (8:30 AM Eastern Time). I reset my Comcast router and I was able to log in. It might have been a simple coincidence in which Zenimax happened to fix the problem just as I was doing the reset, or the reset may have fixed the problem. If anyone is still having the error 201 problem, you might try a reset. Good luck.
