  • Recieving frequent 'Server Unavailable' messages when trying to spectate games.

    I get the Warning message after a very long delay. It says that I've exceeded the maximum number of retrys and that the server is probably unavailable. I have tapped esc during the long load occasionally and I will get placed in the end of a game featuring some of the players I'm looking to spectate but must have ended long before the game I'm currently trying to spectate.

          Yup, having the same problem as well.

          Most of the times it goes to a scene of throne being destroyed and I ended up in different games.

              Just to make this issue draw attention I'll answer as well: Have been having it frequently, about 50% of the time I'd like to spectate a game. I'm from Europe (maybe that's relevant).

                        Yeah, same issue here. I keep getting the victory screens as well; I opened a new thread specifically about that too. Hopefully the devs will notice, otherwise we may have to bump this up.

                        Does anyone else think that Icefrog didn't make this update?

                          I'm having all the problems mentioned in this thread. It rarely works.
