    We seem to be having this problem across a number of games at the moment. We've got people looking into the issue, signs are pointing to this being an internal issue. We'll be sure to update you once we know more.

    I cannot re-download the game now after un-installing it due to a problem not being able to get on the Thurgadin server.
    I guess I will have to keep checking the furums now to see if it is fixed. I will not be around for awhile now. . . until I can re-install the game!

    What is the ISP, City, and State of those that are affected by this issue? So far everyone I have look at has been Comcast and on the west or in the midwest, and if anyone doesn't match that profile I would like to pass that along to the folks in tech.
    Dude and Prissetta like this.

    Comcast, salem Oregon.

    Someone suggested using a VPN in another thread - this did work for me but I was using a free VPN and couldn't download the full game since the free version I used had a data cap.

    i had the problem Friday as well and put in a ticket. There was no resolution to the ticket.
    However, I was able to workaround the issue.

    What I did is get a popular VPN (cost me $50 for 1 year of service) and then did some testing.
    I discovered that if I chose Dallas Texas as my VPN end-point, that everything works perfectly.
    (I played all weekend like this). Now, I don't know if this is related or not, but I am forced to use
    the worst ISP in the United States, and they have multi-day outages on the east and west coast.
    so perhaps routing around this by "going down the middle" is what worked. I have no idea where
    the daybreak data center is... i'm curious..

    I'm located in CA central valley and my ISP (if you want to be generous to call them that.. they are down 50% of the time)
    is Charter/Spectrum. I am able to play, by using a VPN and connecting to Dallas Texas as my endpoint.

    I uninstalled it and FINALLY re-installed the game although I had to hold down the ctrl & alt keys together in order to get the download window to come up. . . but once I did that and the game re-installed. . . I AM BACK ON THURGADIN! (now all I have to do is reinstall it on my second drive so I can got on Maj'dul) but reinstalling the game worked.(at least for me).

    Same issue just stared today. The download from steam worked but when launchpad comes up it's stuck at zero on a 3gb patch and won't download or update.

    Also Comcast. Portland, Oregon.

    I am in Newport, Oregon and I have Pioneer internet. I do not have Comcast, But I am affected in the same way that others on this forum are experiencing. I would like to note that my wife's computer plays EQ2 just fine, but my other 2 computers are a no go for starting up EQ2.

    We have Comcast in Olympia, WA. Still no fix from Daybreak as of today. Here's the last response I received:

    "Thank you for performing these tests! Unfortunately we do not have any other potential fixes at this time. I'm going to be putting your ticket back on hold and will update you as as soon as we have more information.

    Please keep in mind that we do not have an ETA on a solution and it may take some time.

    Same issue plus was initially forced to do a complete reinstall for no reason and then couldn't load. Started yesterday.

    Comcast, Seattle, Washington

    Fingers crossed.

    Have you contacted your ISP? If it's only one ISP that is causing a problem, then maybe the issue belongs to them?

    Wonder if all the fires in Oregon are effecting the path and routing of information to the DBG servers and that is why lots of people in the PNW cannot connect?
