Ok, so I just woke up and i'm trying to play GW2. For some reason I'm getting this error at the launcher. Any known fixes? Firewall is off.

It's an issue on their end. The patcher is returning a 502 error, meaning their backend server is down. If you leave the patcher open, it constantly spams the server at a rate of about 1 MB every 5 min (if you care about bandwidth).

I logged in last night and got my server and name etc. Got in this am for a hour or two, then got disconnected and then this.
Going on 45 minutes now.  Every minute it is not fixed, is very bad PR for a new game.

I'm just glad I got all my names first before this happened. Granted I was in game 5 mins after head start.

Thanks in bunches for the details.  Nice to know this is not a problem with my unchanged configuration all of a sudden.

Wow ANet, you must not be monitoring the problem node.  Download operations group needs to get their act together.

Honestly, at such a crucial point, it would be best to just roll back the server and let people play (if that's an option, which isn't always the case).

Well I had an okay morning session, UK time, though the connection was never perfect; it took a while, for example, for my newly-created character to arrive safely in the map. But now it's a fluctuation between downloading 0kb and 1kb, followed swiftly by the "Connection error(s) detected. Retrying..."  thing - and what's worse, I can't even get into good old Guild Wars 1 itself to take out my frustrations on a Justiciar or two.

So, not an ideal launch party, it would be nice if it got sorted out some time today...

Well I got to the log-in point that time: "The game client is unable to gain access to the log-in server at this time.  This is most commonly caused by a firewall or router settings, security applications, or connecting through a campus network.  For additional support please visit http://support.guildwars2.com."

I think it's a particularly nice touch that the "support" page that the link brings up is entirely blank - you can't fault these guys' sense of humour, for sure!

I can't find it either.  Edit them, say "deleted by poster" and save for now until you get a better answer.

It's not even launch. I see many people demanding they get some free stuff because they claim to have payed for the early access. They haven't, pre purchase has the same price as pre order. Launch is 28 August, so every minute you can play before that time is extra, and it has worked a few hours.

Aparrently none of you played diablo 3 on launch... if you did you wouldnt be

Its better for them to get it right with a few early updates than to leave it broken forever.

The point is that we paid in advance to be able to play today. :)
Probably you're not familiar with the concepts of opportunity cost and interest.

Well, in A-nets defense, they've made a lot of stress tests and the like to prevent this from happening, but if people ignore the stress tests and only go for the release, of course there'll be a whole lot more to take care of. It's hard to maintain the servers.

Just glad I got to play for about 4 hours, lol. Still, I wish I could just bust some Ascalonian heads right now. My kitty needs to kill.

Oh brother. I like bounced out of bed, jigged down the stairs singing at the top of my lungs, yelling GOOD MORNING, completely stunning those around me (I'm not a morning person) washed up quickly and dashed for the PC, trying to log on. And then my mood gets a good whack of FAIL.

*sigh* I guess I can quickly do some things until ArenaNet realized now wasn't the time to try to update. I mean seriously? Now? lmao. xD
