"Server Call Timed Out" Constant Error

I've been experiencing the "server call timed out" error message before I can even select my viking and play. I've had it for the past few days, and was only able to bypass it once (and I don't even know how I did it.)

I just want to know if there is an answer to why this is happening, a fix for it, or if it is something on my end that I can fix myself. I've tried everything I could find to correct it, and even sent an email to support with details yesterday. No reply yet.

I run the game through Steam, not the website's downloadable version (although I have tried that one, still doesn't work.) I've restarted my PC, restarted Steam, re-installed the game multiple times, cleared my Steam download cache, and checked for new updates. Any idea what's going on?


(Still a work in progress!)

Thumbtack, bring back that subject!

Glad to see I'm not the only one with this issue. I tried reinstalling the game a couple times and at least that brought me as far as the Vikings selection page. Whenever I'd try to switch to my main account, however, the game would give me the server call timed out message, forcing me to start all over again. I've been unsuccessfully trying for about five hours before giving up. I did however manage to by-pass the issue with the mobile version, although that also took me a few tries before finally getting in game.




Oh, hello there!





Oh, there it is. Silly old universe. The more I save it the more it needs saving. It’s a treadmill.

Yes, yes I know they’ll get it all wrong without me.

Well, I suppose….one more lifetime won’t kill anyone. Well, except me.

You wait a moment, Doctor. Let’s get it right. I’ve got a few things to say to you. Basic stuff first.

Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise.

Always try, to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh, and….and you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No-one would understand it anyway.

Except….children. Children can hear it. Sometimes – if their hearts are in the right place, and the stars are too. Children can hear your name.

But nobody else. Nobody else. Ever.

Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.

Doctor – I let you go.



-Twelfth Doctor, Twice upon a Time

The tears I cried over this speech, you have no idea.

Not a bug, jsyk. Looks like there's server problems going on.

Nothing you can do on your end to fix this, I'm afraid.

It's been on and off for me; sometimes it'll work, other times it won't. Restarting the app fizes it most of the time but it still takes forever to load.
