    Default Failed to connect to character selection server

    I have just patched up to 1.8 and now every time i try and log in i get an error saying "failed to connect to character selection server press ok to retry or cancel to exit"
    This keeps happening regardless of how many times i cancel and exit or retry to connect. Anyone else having this problem?

    The servers probably weren't up yet. There are a couple of there posts every single patch day.

    Default Can't connect to Server after Patch

    I am having the same problem. I get to 73% and then it says Rift can't connect to server. I hope Tech Support is aware of this issue.

    Ah ok. Is today the patch day then? I wasnt sure how long the patch had been out since i just logged in after awhile of not playing and patched up.

    I'm having the same problem. It updated, and the updater connects just fine, but it won't connect to the character selection server. Totally different from when the servers are down.

    Servers (NA ones at any rate) are still down for maintenance.

    See this Thread:

    Same thing is happening when i try to connect as well.. So it seems like this is not an isolated event.

    Due to the server maintenance we need to extend the length of this downtime - in game announcements were for 1 hour (9:00am ETA), right now we're looking at 9:00am - 9:30am PDT before unlock.
    This is the reason you cant get in.

    Thanks much for that. That would explain it.

    Ok, it was just weird, because usually when the servers are down the updater doesn't connect either.

    That has not been my experience in any patch they have done yet. I generally connect to my machine remotely to get the download out of the way before I get home and usually have it updating during the server down time.
