    I logged onto UO earlier today with no problems, but I tried to log on 10 minutes ago and got this message "the client could not attach to the game server. it must have been taken down, please wait a few minutes and try again"

    Is this just me, or have the servers gone down? I presume not... I've tried restarting the game, my PC, no patch info that I can see. Can anyone shed some light?

    No idea. For weeks now, I get the old "connection lost" box a lot. And then can't log back in because of a "synchronization error", have to completely close down UO and start over.

    Hm... I can log onto a couple more other servers (Can get onto the server list, onto character list, then log in), but for European Shards: Drachenfels and Europa I can't. Hopefully it's not a problem on my end, would love to hear from others on these shards though.

    I received word, a little over half an hour ago, that Virgin Media are having one of those "major outage" things.
    The European Servers are in Dortmund, Germany (last I knew), so it likely wouldn't affect for all, but if you're in the UK on Virgin Media, that may be it.

    Yep I think its our old friend Virgin Media the source of the problem. I couldnt log into game and when I tried couldnt get online at all. Been like it a while for me but at least I am online again now so just going to try logging in again.

    There are some heavy rain storms going across the east coast today in the US. It may be causing the issue. Second time in the past week I have seen lightning in January ever. Once before the snow storm last thursday night and this morning.

    Wierd weather for this time of year in my parts. So if you are on the east coast it may be or have been the issue.

    Now I'm hearing it's unoutaging, so give it a try now.
    If it was a problem with Virgin, it should be sorted now :)
