searched for topics, found one dated the 18th and a response saying it was resolved, but no others. didn't have any issues prior to today, but getting the error code after a period of watching it attempt to connect. went to the support pages and followed the instructions including router/firewall settings and ports, rebooting, etc. same error continues so it's not on my end. been trying for about an hour off and on and still unable to connect. all other internet activity is unaffected, google, netflix, various different browsers, youtube, etc, all work fine. hopefully someone is aware and working on this. weekend is here, would love to play. thanks.
update: seems to be fixed now, thanks to all working on the issues!
