Maintenance for the week of August 19:
· PC/Mac: NA and EU megaservers for patch maintenance – August 23, 4:00AM EDT (8:00 UTC) - 8:00AM EDT (12:00 UTC)
Game Client - Patch Download Fails - HTTPS Request Failed
Firewall is blocking the request to https://patcher.elderscrollsonline.com............
Reason appears to be an expired security certificate. Game client is trying to reach http:// instead of https:// and obviously a good firewall is going to block that request. If you have a 301 redirect, a good firewall will also block an expired cert.
