I currently have a ticket already in, but i’m hoping to get some second opinions on what the issue might be here, as well as try to get a faster response.

I was playing Guild Wars 2 fine about a week ago with my friend. Everything was working OK, i was experiencing no lag or anything like others have talked about on this forum (constant dc, lag spikes, etc) up until the 11th of June. Now…..whenever i open GW2, the launcher will load up to 9%, then slow to a crawl before finally giving the error “Connection errors detected. Retrying” and never making it past 10%. I have never run into this issue before ever since playing on release (Pre-ordered with collectors edition, basically day 1 player).

I have included the Game Adviser attachment, as well as already ran the Guild wars 2 Repair program. BEFORE YOU RESPOND, THE AVG COMPATABILITY ISSUE IS -NOT- THE ISSUE. I completely disabled AVG, windows firewall, tried directly plugging it in……nothing. I never even used AVG or Windows firewalls as i have NoScript. This issue seems to be server side.

I am also running on Comcast internet, which i haven’t heard any issues with (I know cox had some earlier) if that helps. If anyone has any info (especially Anet) please let me know.

Again, the AVG THING IS NOT THE ISSUE, that was my response on the support ticket as well. Thank you in advance.

I could play at Gunnar’s Hold fine this morning (CET), but I get the same error if I try now.

Edit: I tried again after L Step:s update — I’m happy now.

Same here. Appears to try to start then receive a connection error.
TraceRT to the servers is coming back ok.

Ideas anyone? All was fine yesterday.
Only thing I can say is MS pushed an update and restarted the PC this am.

Connection error(s) detecting – please fix your server Anet. >_<’

Edit: For some reason your log-in servers can’t handle the weekend crowd.
Almost every weekend there are login errors/issues. Could you please do
something about it? Thank you.

Rebooted my PC, reconnected my router NOTHING works.

Still say; ‘downloading 1kb / 0 kb and goes to;
’Connection error(s) detected. Retrying….’

I was playing normally 1 hour ago……… >:(

Edit; yay I got in after 12 tries….. I still demand better servers though.

Had this issue this morning. Played yesterday no issue.

I had a windows update to be installed. Installed it and rebooted and GW2 worked. Not sure if this fixed it or it was just a timing thing. But now I am playing.

Same for me.. This error is not on my end, as my internet connection is running very smoothly for everything other than GW2.

Here’s a tip ANet: if you make people pay for your game, let them play it.

It tries to download something at 1kb or so and after that gives the OP’s error message.

Oh well its telling me to do something else today rather than just stare at the screen I guess :p

edit: Allowed me in finally after the 6th time or restarting the client >.>

So it does, retried 6-10 times to get it to work, thank you for the advice.
However it still means that there’s a problem with connection…

I have the exact same problem. I’ve never had any problems before when launching the game. I tried launching 5 minutes ago and this came up and then after it just has ‘Connection errors detected. retrying’

It seems like it connects for me if I just let it idle when loading up the game. Of course this shouldn’t be an issue in the first place.

I had the same problem, but after flushing the DNS, I no longer had the issue

(Windows key + r, cmd, “ipconfig /flushdns”, enter)

Edit: Based on other reports, it just seems coincidental that this worked for me.

it would help if you post where you are since the problem might be on the innerworkings of the server interconnection itself. I’m in New York (East Coast) and i have this issue.

Tried flushing, no effect.

I was able to fix it by right clicking the .exe and running it as administrator (Which is odd as it should do this anyway)

I find it interesting that the “GW2.exe” process takes 17% CPU usage on an i7 just while “retrying” to connect….. at least it apparently is doing something…..

i dont know if this is just coincidental but when I forced the process gw2.exe closed from Task manager I got in immediately on the next try…. probalby just luck.
