"Unable to connect to connect to game server."

As title says. I can connect to the character selection screen, but when I try to load in a character, I receive the message "unable to connect to game server. please make sure you have a valid internet connection."

I don't have any problem logging into any other online game - Warframe, Division 2, Destiny, Destiny 2 - heck, even Fallout 76. This is only an issue with ESO - so it's grindingly obvious that (1) the problem is not on my end, and (2) the problem is not my internet connection.

And before I get boilerplate "have you tried turning it off and back on again" responses, yes I've deleted the save file. Lots. No dice.

I can't connect to ESO either on Xbox-NA or EU.

    I'll repeat myself, but more slowly this time:

    "I don't have any problem logging into any other online game - Warframe, Division 2, Destiny, Destiny 2 - heck, even Fallout 76. This is only an issue with ESO - so it's grindingly obvious that (1) the problem is not on my end, and (2) the problem is not my internet connection.

    And before I get boilerplate "have you tried turning it off and back on again" responses, yes I've deleted the save file. Lots. No dice."

    Kindly note the following:
    1. I don't have any problem logging into any other online game.
    2. I have already tried deleting the saved file - many times.
    3. I have tried the boilerplate "fixes" that you cite in the intensely unhelpful boilerplate response.

    They haven't acknowledged it yet but something is def wrong. On the PC side users that own the game through steam can't login.

    I get the same error here today several days since this thread was created and have tried the same solutions. Nothing works. This is a ZOS problem not a problem with the XBox internet connection. ZOS will have to find what is happening and fix it. In the meantime I have other things to do. I probably won't try to play again until after this week's scheduled Patch Maintenance.
