North American Servers Disconnected or Crashed on August 2, 2022.

Players are logging into the game to find that that they are placed in a big queue. For many this gives flashbacks to the first weeks of the Endwalker release. Don’t worry it’s not that. There are reports that most North American servers had a hiccup and so everyone was disconnected causing the large queues. Once most players have reconnected the queues should go back to normal.

As of right now there is no mention about this in the Lodestone. However there are multiple reports confirming this on Reddit and Discord servers.

The timing for the crash coincided with the say day of the Home World Transfer Service and Data Center Maintenance for Japanese Data Centers. It is unknown if this is related at this time.
