I am playing from China so I need to use a VPN to connect as some of the servers used by Vermintide 2 are blocked from here.
But I’ve received a number of server error reports stopping me from playing.
(worth noting I’m playing with a friend who is also in China and isn’t having these issues and we recently played through Vermintide 1 without these issues)
First, was the “Sign-In Timeout” error.
Following the advice here I tried verifying the integrity of game files, restarting steam, and PC.
I also flushed my DNS and checked that there was an exception in my firewall for Vermintide 2.
That worked for a little bit and I was able to play the prologue and join a friend’s lobby.
However we almost immediately disconnected when we started the game and I received “Backend Error: SSL_CONNECT_ERROR”.
Since that happened I’m unable to get past the initial loading screens.
Following advice elsewhere on these forums I checked with this site https://5107.playfabapi.com/ and got the following result.
