Getting error code 42 and infinite loading screen

This is strange. Sometimes, i can log on to the game. Then, a message showing error code 42 (cannot connect to game server) appears. And having infinite loading screen while changing maps. Sometimes, I cannot log on to the game because the game said error code 42 (cannot connect to game server). I tried following the ways listed on gw2 support that may be able to solve this problem but they do not work.

P.S. I am a player from Hong Kong


  • I am having this problem as well. I'm a player from the Philippines. I've tried just about everything from the 'Solving Problems' page and I've yet to make anything work.

  • Have you tried a VPN?

    Tried using the free VPN ones, did not solve the problem.

  • Can try others, they don't all take the same path.

    Good luck.

  • I used my phone for a usb tether and seemed to work. But it's not really a fix for this kind of problem.

  • I get an infinite loading screen on the new map, everytime no matter what i do, when i try to go to that map i never get past the loading screen, i have to kill the game via the task manager then restart the game, then go back into the map,

    I can replicate this bug everytime i try to zone into the new map from any other map in the game.
