    Been trying for over 10 mins to log in to Excal...tried my Thane, parked in Hadrian's Wall...gets to char loading screen and hangs there with progress bar full...tried my Warrior, parked in housing zone, and got:

    Service not available, hit Esc to exit game"


    EDIT: and now GOA site not working..

    Sometimes this occurs (it may have been fixed). Usually changing the camera angle 'brakes' the loading screen so u can play.

    Nope, it's still doing it, "service not available"...now not gettng anything except that on the first login screen. Really annoying.

    OK, now it's hanging on the initial login screen, you know, the on where you put account name etc in, says "connecting to login server" and that just keeps blinking.

    WTF is going on?

    EDIT: it's definitely a problem with Excalibur, I just logged into Prydwen fine on both my accounts.

    are you on NTL by any chance?

    We are having problems here too in Lincoln, web pages are getting more and more difficult to open, and cant connect to the game.
    Appears to be an intermittent problem because my msn is still working fine.

    Yeah, NTL cable...FFS! I HAVE to log into Excal NOW, there a bloody RR going on FFS! Useless fucking NTL muppets...

    EDIT Wait that doesnt make sense how could I log into Pryd with no problems?

    Yep: "there are no problems at this moment"

    But what's really weird is I can log into Prydwen fine on both my accounts.

    That tells me my install of DAOC etc is fine, but I can't see NTL using a different route to Prydwen as opposed to Excalibur, I would've thought that would happen only at the very last server/router hop before the server itself...really, really, really fucking annoying though.

    I got the same problem. NTL near Lincoln :(

    Done a pingplotter to prydwen server.... OMFG at all the red on it. If I could upload it somewhere I would show you it.

    77 D/C in 10 mins.... That's like.... BAD!

    Nice one NTL! :flame:

    Problem seems to be :


    Mainly the first one. The other 2 are after it so could be a symptom of the first one being borked :p

    I gave up ringing NTL when all they told me was 'it was working as intended'.
    Think I heard that before :D

    Just to convince you to do something other than play daoc.
    Turn your computer off and go to bed.

    Reading the posts also helps, and maybe check the time and date for the 1st post before replying.
    These problems started the evening before of the planned maintenance shutdown.
