ESO stuck at the loading screen before character select.


I am trying to load up ESO and after running the patcher, putting my user name/PW in I am stuck at the loading screen before character select. Is anyone else having this issue?

    5th times a charm. After updating my game drivers and running the repair launcher function around 5 times that last repair fixed the issue.

    I'm also stuck at the log in screen. And here I thought maybe they had fixed their issues from the past 3 weeks. It only got worse..

    Having the same issue.

    I repaired the game SEVERAL times, removed all my Add-Ons, then even uninstalled and REINSTALLED the entire game. Still stuck at a loading screen after log in. Who knows if I'll ever see my characters again. Not to mention that I tried all day yesterday, continuing into today with this issue persisting. Couldn't even get on this unreliable game on my quarantine pandemic BIRTHDAY, thanks zenimax, LOVE paying 15/month for a game I can't even log in to. Not to mention, now I regret recommending and getting friends to purchase this broken spaghetti code can barely handle its regular players not to mention the new influx. Let's see if I manage to log in TODAY since my birthday yesterday got shut down hard.

    Thanks again, Zenimax, you love outdoing yourselves, huh?

    There were recently connection issues affecting players on the PC-EU megaserver. With the recent maintenance these connection issues should now be resolved. Since there are multiple threads discussing this issue we will be closing this thread.
