    Constant 'Failed to join game'

    This never happened when I last played, but it seems like at least a third of all games I attempt to create now will fail at the loading screen, and throw that message in my face.

    check or disable your firewalls, something is most likely blocking port 4000

    Just tried it without a firewall, same problem.

    Did a port test with utorrent and 4000 is definitely open and forwarded.

    Try, when making a game or joining a game, to enter slower..
    I mean that if you click on join or create, you dont press enter within 2 seconds, but first wait 2 second before clicking enter or the button ;)

    My exprecience with hosting baalruns is that if you create or join to fast you will get ''failed to join game''

    Now when I wait 2 secs I never got it anymore..

    Maybe it helps, otherwise it is indeed your firewall/connection..

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    Yeah, almost every other game i make or join is a fail. I stopped playing d2 in full, 2 years ago when i bought guildwars but ive been on d2 anough to keep all my charas from 2002 till now up and alive, i come back in full force 2 years later and theres nothing but wild fails and lag and all kinds of annoying stuff. Game is still good tho, i love how it has never changed since i left, because i think 1.11b was already out in march 2006 when i got guildwars so basically the game hasn't changed one bit. Cept for more game fails what is with it man.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    I just started getting epic Failed to Joins. The strange thing is, it's only on one character! He can't join or create a game. Different character on the same account, no problem. What kinda crap is this...

    Edit: Someone else was logged in with that character, that's why. >.< d'oh!

    Disconnect your internet connection, then delete a file call "bncache.dat" in your d2 folder.

    Solve my problem once, not sure if it work for you.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    I've been getting the same issue as well. If I join OR create a game, I get 'failed to join game.' It'll start in the middle of a game, where it'll suddenly disconnect me. Everyone stops moving and monsters run in place. The failed to join game errors will persist for an hour. If I stop playing and just come back later it'll work fine. I tried waiting a few seconds before I make/join games. I restarted the client too; None of it worked.

    It can't be my firewall. This was never an issue the last time I played before the patch with the exact same firewall/connection/computer/everything (8 months ago?).

    I'll give Trueblood's suggestion a shot.

    edit: I LITERALLY typed in the game name/pass, then posted this just to test the "wait" fix. (It was about one minute). When I came back in, my character was reversed 2 minutes from what I was doing before the disconnect. I was in the middle of meph runs, thank god nothing rare dropped. :/

    There's a public rollback exploit on BNet that all the scripters are abusing. Nothing you can fix on your computer.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    People are intentionally crashing BNets servers, which causes rollback (characters revert to last 'save', what you refered to as you character being reversed), realm downs, general server instability, etc.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    Oh wow, so does that mean it's impossible to dupe if the server forces a rollback? That sounds like extremely good news, but at the same time it is extremely annoying having the stability of the servers within the whim of some irresponsible child. You're probably the wrong person to ask, but is there any blue posts on this issue?

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    The exact opposite actually, in the past rollback exploits have been involved in a lot of dupes, AFAIK the current one can't be used to dupe, but I'd imagine that's just a matter of time.



    AFAIK Blizzard are taking their usual sweet time doing anything about it.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    Well yeah, but this specific bug is a server wide rollback, and I could be wrong, but it seems like it duping would be impossible if the ENTIRE server crash, and EVERY char is rolled back. Maybe there is a bit of optimism to be had from when they said they 'fixed a dupe exploit,' it wasn't just quickly patching the netcode to kick meteor/torch hellfire spam. They'll find another way, but maybe it'll slow them down long enough that I'll lose interest before the dupes explode.

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    The only thing that really annoys me is that Blizzard acts VERY unprofessional. I mean, look at dozens of threads open on bnet forums about this problem, and not a single blue post saying at least that they are looking into that matter.
    That could mean only 2 things, or even both:
    1. Blizzard doesn't care about Diablo servers
    2. Blizzard simply don't have a solution to this dupe/rollback problem, and they even won't admit it

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    Infuriating state of play.

    I run through the full length of the Flayer jungle from the waypoint till just short of lower Kurast wp - rollback

    I run from Pandemonium fortress through to Izual then onto City of the Damned wp - rollback losing wp and thul dropped by Izzy

    I run from Tundra through to and despatch ancients without taking wp then onto wsk 3 - rollback losing wsk wp and gear.

    I know the answer is to exit and rejoin on taking wps and finding good gear but is the rest of the ladder season going to be like this? :banghead:

    Re: Constant 'Failed to join game'

    wow, this thread has been necro'd 3 times

    can we let it sink to the bottom again

    possible problems

    if its after a c/i
    the server crashed and/or your char is being rolled back, it will reset in about 5 min

    or port 4000 is being blocked
    check or disable your software firewalls
    (or test with torrent or other software that can use a custom port)
