Can't Access Guild Wars 2 - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Having Problems with Accessing Guildwars2.com?
Nathan Kernica · 15 February 2014 - 17:48

Attempted again, got in. Skills were just slightly off, so we tried to do some stuff. Shortly after real combat started, it became unplayable. Ran off to safety and waited for the inevitable loss of connection (which did happen).

Andrew Shire · 13 February 2014 - 19:49

Just tried... can't get in. Been like this for 15 minutes or more. I logged out because of excessive lag.

Donald Boell · 13 February 2014 - 19:29

just like the other night - the way the servers keep coming up and going back down - looks like another denial of service attack on GW2

David Widener · 11 February 2014 - 19:37

keep getting to char select then game disconnects or just sits there.

Jorge Rov · 11 February 2014 - 19:37

Black Lion was down for an hour, now i got kicked and can't log back in. They f#!ked up somehow. The official forums are also down.

Francisco Fonseca Jr. · 11 February 2014 - 19:25

http://www.mmoserverstatus.com/guild_wars_2
It's up, but just barely. 8ms isn't playable.

Daniel Mathis · 11 February 2014 - 18:50

http://www.mmoserverstatus.com/guild_wars_2
This is another bit of info if you are interested in the servers right now.

Christian Exerath Crowley · 11 February 2014 - 18:45

Iana Wi · 11 February 2014 - 18:44

whats stupid is that this actual page is useless because its checking "guildwars2.COM" and not their game servers... but the comments told me what i needed to know anyway :$

Jason Teeter · 11 February 2014 - 18:42

All of NCsoft is down... it isn't just GW2 this is COMPANY WIDE so major issue..

David Wilkinson · 11 February 2014 - 18:41

Just got on 10 mins ago here in philly, lagged out then server crashed... can't login no more :(

Johnny O'Bryan · 11 February 2014 - 18:38

Yes, the servers are down temporarily. No, bitching about it will not solve the issue.

Donald Boell · 11 February 2014 - 18:32

oh FFS - came back up, then crashed again. Marionette over - score stuck on 4/5 - we got totally screwed out of beating it

crash #3 in a span of less than 10 min - screw this, off to WOW

Donald C Kowalewski · 11 February 2014 - 18:30

Entire guild (worldwide members) are offline - has crashed twice in 15 min.

Nicole Edwards · 11 February 2014 - 18:24

Not working for me! Started lagging in-game about 10 mins ago now I can't get past login

Donald Boell · 11 February 2014 - 18:22

in the middle of marionette - first 3 paths did their job, 2 to go - and the damn server crashes. thanks anet - feed the damn chipmunks.

Rodnix Mablung · 14 January 2014 - 04:38

Game Login server works... but not any further. Error Code 21:6:3:2205

Damon Jay · 14 January 2014 - 04:15

It's Down for me in Los Angeles, CA and i just started my new Norn Ele!!!

Jonathan Yuen · 31 December 2013 - 15:53

https://twitter.com/DerpTrolling
its a ddos attack anet doesn't have to "release" anything.

Kyle Monteagudo · 31 December 2013 - 15:46

how could you possibly know it was a DDOS attack... Anet hasnt released anything.

Scott Gibson · 31 December 2013 - 15:45

This is the first time I have seen the servers down in the 6 months I have been playing - not a bad track record really...

Nick Abela · 31 December 2013 - 15:39

All of GW2 servers are down including website. I thought I got blocked or something, thank god.

Efim Kushnir · 5 November 2013 - 21:38

cant get an authontication Mail for 10 hours now- it keeps saying that "the game client cant gain access to the log in server at this time"( error 42:1030:7:217)

Mark Becker · 20 September 2013 - 03:18

I cannot log into GW2 Aurora Glade server as no authentication is received, and if you login to report a fault via trouble ticket, guess what!! it send you an authentication email which if the authentication server is down, you screwed both ways. Awesome game but new content messes up gameplay every single time. Please focus on the server issues and overflows to make the game enjoyable, otherwise I would rather go fly a kite :P

Battle Bud · 18 September 2013 - 22:01

I can't log in to my game account or website account because authentication server is down again.

Michael Denman · 18 September 2013 - 19:51

Authentication Server has major issues or My Email does. I don't receive the authentication email till almost 20 minutes after and the client times out. Sadly, I quit playing 7 months ago, and this is what I come back to... lmao, Pathetic. Just pathetic. Nothing has changed with this game. Still a waste of time.

Daniel Conde · 16 September 2013 - 06:58

when i start gw2 it doesnt do anything it just stays at downloading 0kb (0kb/sec) and when i click the background it just goes not responding. PLEASE HELP ME! i waited so long for the download and im gonna be real disappointed if that was all in vain

Blake Whitlow · 28 August 2013 - 09:15

same for me i still cant log in to the game or the website. at least there working on it.

Maria Sanchez · 24 August 2013 - 07:41

8/24.13 cant log in on my game, why is that if the update was done few seconds earlier than me login in

Gareth Crawford · 20 August 2013 - 15:09

i was playing 1 second then i was kick and cant seem to log back in due to an error ie error code 42:6:3:2151

Marieke Severijns · 6 August 2013 - 04:22

Server Maintenance: August 6th, 12AM PDT

We will be conducting maintenance on the game on Tuesday, August 6th, starting at 12:01 AM PDT (07:01 UTC / 09:01 CEST). This maintenance period will last up to 6 hours. The following systems will be down and will not be available for the duration of the maintenance.

So yeah, the game is down but the servers aren't

Sharon Harkness · 6 August 2013 - 02:28

Having an issue getting logged in says "the game client is unable to connect to the log in server..."

Battle Bud · 16 July 2013 - 12:10

i can't log in. after the automatic log off from today's update, i tried to log back in but there is nothing being sent to my email address for authentication

Corey Larcomb · 25 June 2013 - 14:28

Joke's on you I don't have a firewall and I never get a virus... reason? Virus aims for firewall opening gateway to computer..BING BANG BOOM.

Stuart Watson · 26 May 2013 - 08:09

Thank you very much for the updates guys! Sad that we're all having a problem, but nice to know it's not us specifically ;) Good hunting! (when we finally get in)

David J Sowers · 26 May 2013 - 07:50

GW2 twitter page says they know of the issue and are working on getting people in

Stuart Watson · 26 May 2013 - 07:40

I'm having a problem logging in as well. Getting a "game client not able to access the login server" error...

Battle Bud · 26 May 2013 - 07:38

I can't log in again. It's the same firewall error as all the other times i couldn't log in

Bart Williams · 21 May 2013 - 14:32

I cannot connect to either the official website and connecting to game is spotty to impossible. Doing a Diagnostic inidcates some ip addresses are not reachable??

Amber McClure · 16 May 2013 - 15:04

How am I suppose to work towards my legendary with the server being down :-(

Toleto Tolev · 16 May 2013 - 15:03

Chris Kociolek · 16 May 2013 - 15:01

Victor Avram · 16 May 2013 - 14:00

Joshua Harton · 16 May 2013 - 13:49

This is an awesome game and this is the first time I have been unable to play for more than 30 min. Props to the GW2 folks who are keeping things running; hope y'all can figure out what's up. :D

Cameron Near · 16 May 2013 - 13:37

**If You Are Having Issues Look Here**
-https://twitter.com/GuildWars2
-They are aware of the problems both with logging in and disconnecting with the Trial Account message. It's being worked on.

Giang Huỳnh Hoài · 16 May 2013 - 13:36

glad to find out that its just a crash, i was afraid my account being hacked. Just got kicked. Heart attack, then submit shit on the answer forum, it must be flooded now

Solcov Palarni · 16 May 2013 - 13:26

I just had a mini heart attack :D

"Regina Buenaobra

North American Community Team Lead

Hey, everyone. Thanks for the reports. We are ware of the login problems and the erroneous in-game messaging you received. We haven’t converted you all to Free Trial accounts.

We are working as hard as possible to get you all back into the game. Thank you for bearing with us, and we apologize for the inconvenience."

Sunni Day · 16 May 2013 - 13:17

looks like they are aware of the problem...it's here on Twitter twitter.com/GuildWars2

KC Salyers · 16 May 2013 - 13:12

they could still just send a message saying, hey we are going to fix our servers. please wait, not say your tiral account cant access something -.-'' really i bought the ce for nothing i swear

Lindsay Tidd · 16 May 2013 - 13:10

Yeah Arenanet has a lot of glitches they need to work out. It honestly seems like every time they fix an issue they just create another one.

Nenad Asanovic · 16 May 2013 - 13:08

Free trial? So i buy game and got kicked for free trial? WTF? Anet learn to manage your servers. This way you ain't gonna keep many players aspecially now when rift is going to be f2p soon...

Kerry Neely · 16 May 2013 - 13:07

Same here. just got the game three days ago. Kicked and get Free trial account error.

Sunni Day · 16 May 2013 - 13:06

Same error as everyone and of course can't log into their forum... so guess it's their end

Luke Healey · 16 May 2013 - 13:00

Can't log in due to firewall error... Think that's not the issue aanet :/

Dessi Dechev · 16 May 2013 - 12:59

got kicked coz my free trial is over also but i dont have a free trial -.-

Aaron Martinez · 16 May 2013 - 12:56

same issue with the trial account. I didnt even know they had a trial option lol

Lindsay Tidd · 16 May 2013 - 12:55

Yeah its happening for me too. Saying my "so called" free trial is over... -.-'

Morgan Kamesch · 16 May 2013 - 12:53

Just got kicked saying my free trial account is over? wtf? I've never had a free trial account lol

Ingolf Nudler · 27 April 2013 - 09:51

Client doesn't connect. Network etc. is up so I guess my GW server is down. Error Code 26:11:5:506

Kristen Bergeron · 13 April 2013 - 18:47

the game client is unable to gain access to the login server at this time most commonly caused by firewall or router settings... yet you let me play for an hour already GERRRR

Oliver Jaranilla Cepeda · 5 April 2013 - 18:53

I was playing then suddenly it lost connection to server, now I log in and I hear my character yawning but all i see is the loading screen for wayferer foothills

Lennart Norberg · 28 March 2013 - 08:56

Cannot access today. "Connection error(s). Retrying...". Never had any problems before (about 6 months into the game). Checked router and firewall. Nothing helps.

Jonette Wright Buatt · 23 March 2013 - 19:27

Just tried and got further than before. Logged in, went to character selection screen, then bombed with same firewall error message.

Allan Cruet · 23 March 2013 - 17:41

it appears that the server is responding, however I still cannot login nor recover my account

Allan Cruet · 23 March 2013 - 16:51

Yep got booted during play with firewall message, cannot log back in nor change password by satisfying account recovery info, acts like my password is wrong

Heather M Haley · 23 March 2013 - 16:04

Getting the firewall error issue right now, too, but I know my settings are fine. I was gaming earlier today.

Stephen Herbert · 23 March 2013 - 15:59

Currently getting the firewall restriction issue, although my firewall settings clearly have the client on the "allowed" list.

Morgan Kamesch · 7 March 2013 - 21:39

I hate this. I finally get to play all night long and this happens. lol.

Bruce Nielson · 7 March 2013 - 21:39

I can't login to GW2 either right now. I've tried multiple logins (I have more than one account). I'm now going to try a different computer just in case.

...Three accounts and two computers later, and none work. Seeing that there are others having the problem, I'm now going to assume that it's GW2's problem and go to bed. Sigh.

Morgan Kamesch · 7 March 2013 - 21:32

I can't sign in right now. I was just playing and it was fine, then all of a sudden my party and I weren't getting each others messages. I signed out and now I'm getting the Firewall error. :(

Emily Townsend · 20 February 2013 - 07:39

I can't log in either, I'd just joined a really friendly guild as well :(

Kevin Sicotte · 26 January 2013 - 01:23

just posted on twitter they have located the issue and it is on there end and are currently working to fix it

Sean Downey · 26 January 2013 - 01:21

Cant log on wither :( Finally finished all my work fam stuff logged on killed Jormag and BOOT. Go to bed:(

Nick Danger Hertzler · 26 January 2013 - 01:20

Yup, same deal. "Firewall restrictions." They need to man up and just admit that it MIGHT be due to their servers being down.

Janell Bender · 26 January 2013 - 01:18

Can't log in either, I was logged in and left the room to get some juice and it disconnected while I was gone. posted 6 seconds ago on gw2 twitter feed "We are currently aware of the server issues and are in the process of investigating. Thank you for your patience. ^ET" so no worries =D

Craig Eshleman · 26 January 2013 - 01:11

Can't login either. Get the firewall restriction message as well. Stopped in the middle of game play.

Nicholas Chee · 26 January 2013 - 01:03

Malaysian player in US server Jade Quarry here. Unable to login for the past 8 minutes.

Joel Anderson · 26 January 2013 - 00:55

thanks rob - had about 10min of wondering if it was my comp since I just started 6hrs ago. Thought it was odd I would have a firewall issue while playing. Could give us a better log in error. Bookmarking this site just in case lol

Rob Ryerson · 26 January 2013 - 00:53

12:51 AM PST 1/26/13 - Login Server Down. Was in game, just finished a long instance, hope it saved. For you new guys, this is the first crash I've ever seen, in about 3 months of playing, and I probably average > 60 hrs a week.

Kevin Sicotte · 26 January 2013 - 00:49

crappy since i just got the game today went to go to the council area in azura area then d/c now can't get back in or log into forums guess they are down for now

Melissa Farrar · 26 January 2013 - 00:47

Having the same issues right now. I think their servers are down atm.

Chad Watkins · 26 January 2013 - 00:43

The game client is unable to gain access to the log-in server at this time. This is most commonly caused by firewall or router settings, security applications, or bla bla bla. what the heck!?
i was in game, everything was fine. it froze up, crashed, cant relog.

Andrew Ciallella · 3 January 2013 - 22:04

yea I got the update and I can understand the game being down after the update but why is the site down?

Andrew Ciallella · 3 January 2013 - 21:39

website down, cant login. Idk wtf is going on I was playing today. or well yesterday

Bulls On Parade · 6 December 2012 - 22:16

@Hamish it was a maintenance.. it just wasn't announced very well. Check out the Guild Wars 2 twitter feed.

Crystal Del Campo · 6 December 2012 - 22:16

Wow, it has been a very long time now. You would think they would have a little more backup stuff just in case this happens.

Dave Boehler · 6 December 2012 - 22:15

This is for the birds, I have deleted all my cookies, adjusted everything possible, this site says it is up and they didn't have any errors, my computer reports it is running fine, if gw2 is working, why can't we get on?

Jeff Berg · 6 December 2012 - 22:15

The sad part is that they don't even let us know what is going on and when to expect it to be back up

Hamish Speden · 6 December 2012 - 22:07

I was playing when it went down - was violently kicked without warning - this was not a scheduled maintenance outage. so annoying and still not back up after over 2 hrs... arg. cmon anet...

Leilana Drakos · 6 December 2012 - 22:03

what a drag! still can't access or log into the game or website since 730PM hawaii time :( . and I know it's not my account

John Mayer · 6 December 2012 - 22:03

just d/led planetside 2, thought that f'ed up my pc, atleast i'm glad i'm not the only one., BOOOO though...

David Barnard · 6 December 2012 - 22:00

website is back down, added the ports to my Linksys still has probs so I guess it's on them... /sigh

Joe Luis Alcocer · 6 December 2012 - 21:49

Let's all go play D3! It was nominated for the IGN.com People's Choice Game of the Year!

Chris Barker · 6 December 2012 - 21:25

cant login, getting firewall error like others, yet was playing fine minutes before

Mary Andrade Crosthwaite · 6 December 2012 - 21:12

I can't log on supposedly due to firewall restrictions. However, i played earlier today with no problem...?

Lucius Zipperer · 6 December 2012 - 21:05

and I had just finished a long story quest... guess I'll be doin that again

Mark Rosana · 6 December 2012 - 21:05

Was there any announcement or news letter about server maintenance at all? Web and game are still down, but for how long?

Lloyd Henley · 6 December 2012 - 20:50

I just hope to hell it didn't eat my toons, Was in middle of server transfer when it shut down and refused my re-entry v.v

Bulls On Parade · 6 December 2012 - 20:49

Kari you had a good idea, i checked Arenanet's twitter there was nothing but the Guild Wars 2 twitter confirmed this is server maintenance.. crap.

Jonathan Thornton · 6 December 2012 - 20:48

Literally just bought this game 20 minutes ago and its down. I'm so sad.
