Ayyy, welcome to the club there’s 5 topic open like that.
Have fun waiting, informationless, with us!
Apparently it’s bound to your steam ID or steam account but who knows. At least I can tell you there’s no fix on our end, people have tried everything, ranging from hardware updates, software updates, reinstalling, SSD/HDD, verifying, firewall, anti-virus, changing video settings and so on…


Still no fix

Have you been able to log in at all since?

I have the exact same problem, i was able to get in the game before it started happening but now i am forever stuck. I dont know if it could be related but the problem started only after I updated my graphic drivers on my 3050.



Sadly no I cannot log in at all and the update that just happened didn’t help at all.

I get stuck in a queue right after I press spacebar, at the beginning of the game.
Character selection hasn’t been reached at all.

I just keep getting sent to the back of the line due to “Back end error - Error signing in”. Yesterday spamming it worked after a couple tries. But today, can’t seem to get through.

Servers are stabilising after a second downtime within the space of a couple of hours, hang in there.


Sadly it didn’t change anything for me. I just tried and had the exact same outcome :frowning:

So I keep seeing people speaking about how trying with another steam account works and how it’s tied to steam ID.

Honestly I am sad that I get the most information from other players and not from any officials but here’s that; it appears to come from the steam ID/account. Hope you can send back the information FatsharkJulia.
