Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

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.

Can't connect easily and can't stay connected once into the game.

It's like watching a bad video from 1920 - yes the lag is that bad and it isn't users when the net is under attack - Pandora can't connect easily, most websites are taking forever to load ( I am in Washington state) and my speed is half of what it is supposed to be.

Comcast throttles speeds - then the DDoS does the rest.

There is a problem with the game - too bad I can't post the ping pic here.

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).

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

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.
