Nope, still up and running.

Same stuff as yesterday. Lobby servers are swamped, can't get server list. the arrstatus website is not reliable, cause the servers themselves have not really been down at all the entire weekend, just the logins.

Yeah, something seems majorly boned, getting into the character selection screen has been a crapshoot for me for the last 45 minutes.

The SE websites are chugging too, surely the web and game servers are separated? Almost feels like a DDoS attack.

Oh, on JP servers by the way. The JP server list has been up and down like a yoyo for the past 4 hours or so, seems like NA/EU is a bit more stable. But it's primetime in this part of the world Smiley: grin

Can't wait for the maintenance on Wednesday!

Well, because that's basically what it is. Thousands of people sending requests to the server all at the same time. Only these requests are legitimate requests, not malicious ones.

My game crashed, restarted the client about 6 times, and the servers appeared, then ended up in queue and back on.

Yeah, i was stuck loading "The Central Shroud" zoning out of Grid. It just wouldnt load the area. I could see the shouts, but the whole big golden text was there for 10 minutes. Finally just closed it and figured i'd play the 1017 game :/ Seriously SE...

I'm getting "Unable to update the Group NA/EU Character List" for about an hour now. Yesterday my buddy had it for a couple hours yet I was able to get in after a few tries. So it seems like SE's servers are selectively responding to world requests, probably overloaded. The World Status shows online. I've reset my client plenty of times.

I've gotten in 4 times and been kicked out by 9k while crafting or checking the market boards. When I am crafting I lose all my mats. When I get in, it seems like a ton of people are actually logged out. It doesn't look like people who are afk, it looks like people who have been dropped unexpectedly.

The 4th time I was guessing it was an issue with udhal, so I jumped to LL. but 2 minutes in I got borked out.

Hmm has anyone selected their character to login with only to get a black screen right after that stayed that way and nothing happened? Is it another common error or did my game just freak out when trying to login

Been trying to login for a couple days now with the NA server errors(obtaining world list). Yesterday even the start button was greyed out. Not to mention I haven't been able to play since launch because of server congestion.

Not happy!

Not exactly, but I am stuck in a perpetual loading screen after character select. I found a neat little easter egg (it's not a bug of course) for PS3 at least, if you hit L1+R1+Start+Select it will toggle the spinning icon off and on. Something to do while you're waiting /sarc.

I have found a seemingly slightly reliable way to get around the NA/EU error and actually select my character, but maybe it's coincidence. I have other characters on JP servers that I will try to login as, and after getting a World Full error, or cancelling out of a queue, or doing a logout it seems to get a fresh Lobby Server more than if you just exit back to main.

Shouldn't the title be 9/2/13? Because I looked at it and thought the game wasn't even released to public until 8/27/13 so was this a necro-post?

Anyways, just hang tight everyone, and let's hope for Wednesday to fix most of the problems, or at least be the start of the fixes we've all been waiting on.

I've tried to login a handful of times to my NA server character today, and this has been the case each time. Played my JP server character for a couple of hours though.

Am I the only one who feels like complaining about 1017 a little less than one month before launch is a waste? Just saying...

EDIT: For those that don't get it, The title says 8/2. It's 9/2.
