  • Jillian

    I did not like the latest Game of War update.It starts to load and gets to like 20% and then stops. Massive problem guys.

  • Graham

    I have been having issues with login last week but all good now. But this week i seem to be having issues with Med Packs.

  • Billy

    There was a new update a few days ago so I decided to go ahead with it, wish I didn’t now because Game of War will not open up for me now. Just keeps saying connecting and that’s it.

  • Nigel

    I am having issues connecting to Game of War on my smartphone, what is happening?

  • Marcus

    Game of War speed ups and my gold are now gone thanks to the game going down. Are the servers down or is there a maintenance update?

  • Melany

    Game of War is down, i am having trouble trying to login. All it ever says is connecting. I have tried on both LTE and WiFi.

  • Mark

    Game of War: Fire Age server is down and I think it has something to do with a suprise Halloween update.

  • Tim Brotherton

    My marches returned no all of my gathered gold is gone and I’m left unshielded too what’s next
    kingdom burnt down……is it a ploy to get people to buy gold packs

  • Keith

    Can’t log in, screen displays “New Features Coming soon” we will be back up shortly

  • Ariel B.

    anyone from andris?!

  • Steve Shearer

    When the down as I was getting attacked

  • PHYCOMAN 488

    This is bs. Hopefully they SHEild us

  • Modemmix

    Suprise planned outage would be a GREAT way to piss people off. If this is indeed for the “suprise Halloween update” they could have called it something else and notified their customers. After the new ToS my first thought when i cant log in is they decided to exercise the “we can shutdown forever whenever we want” clause..

  • PHYCOMAN 488

    For the thousands of dollars I’ve invested, we all invested. A “Hey we’re going to be shut down” would of given us the curtesy to let us know. Hopefully they SHEild us because if not I’m not spending another dime on GOW

  • Mike Stock

    Unfortunately they could care less about the rest of us I’m sure they phoned and warned there poster boy

  • Debbie Louise Stott

    If they don’t shield us all then it’s a scam to make us all have to buy packs and rebuild arrrrgggghhh please update and let us play GOW I’m worried about my troops and my hero…..

  • Mike Stock

    I am sure if it was a upgrade or planned shutdown they would have posted in the blog thus I’m leaning towards the theory that either there servers crapped out or they were hacked

  • Leo

    Outage started at about 3:30 am eastern time. I had logged out due to lag and couldn’t get back in. The current message went up between 4 and 6 am. So clearly not a planned outage. In my opinion MZ has made too many changes lately without sufficient system testing and they got caught. Ordinarily if an update causes problems I would think it should be simple to restore the system to a previous point. The length of this outage suggests something catastrophic has happened.

  • XK tags

    Anyone here from Petoria?

  • Jay Peso

    Anybody from catarex been knocked off since 2 am est

  • Jerrol da Cool

    Anyone else getting that big wallpaper when trying to log in? I can’t get in from last night and my shield will expire soon

  • Sorhabwesley .

    They don’t care that you paid thousands to play in a fantasy land.

  • Jerrol da Cool

    I’m from edia

  • PloChu

    Im from Edia

  • Jerrol da Cool

    Are you getting on GoW? I’m so frustrated right now

  • PloChu

    I havent been able to lov in since 12 am its 9:30 now. I just checked the facebook page for GOW and they barely addressed the issue 25 mins ago.

  • Jerrol da Cool

    Your getting the same wallpaper? They better compensate us because some of us invest money in this game

  • Francis Lynch

    Even if they shield everyone, we will all loose any heroes captured. How do they plan to compensate for troops and rss used to make the captures.
    Btw, does anyone else have a problem with not getting the materials listed in the Gold Packs? Only 10% of mine ever had every thing delivered, and that was the beginner packs.
    GOW is disappointing.

  • PloChu

    We wont loose the heroes. The last time this happened it wasnt quite as long but the even shielde people holding heroes, I logged into a kindon where people were shielded and hopding heroes.

  • PloChu

    Yes, same wallpaper as the majority. I feel you on that brother

  • BorisRae

    Their server crapped out, the client. (Us) wasn’t sending pings to servers which was giving us false info on our screens, e.g tiles spawned not shown, tiles sat on unoccupied and so on. They have masked their gaf behind an update that went wrong as well.

  • Bing


  • Suzanne Bottomley

    Do they actually have a clause like that

  • Eddie Mac

    Ipsus #645 Matawann, lost connect around 3 AM yesterday, still no connection.
    I understand upgrades, even computer issues but almost 12 hours later? Inexcusable.

  • Chris Healey

    WhI too have been not getting all the items in packs what can we do about it though?

  • Vince2015

    Still no connection in the netherlands?if i loose something, like troops etc than i stop playing GOW , shield is expired . So i’m a sitting duck !

  • Modemmix

    Yes, if you havent you should read the recently updated ToS. You basically lost all rights of digital ownership and the professed the right to close up shop at any time for any reason or close individual accounts simply for suspicion with no requirement for actual evidence you violated and policy or rule. Overall a drastic change.

  • Recon 48

    This suck 3new phones and still cant login to game of war for two days now

  • Hugh J Ardon

    Good afternoon. Was not able to log into any account on Game of War. Was asked to perform a manuel update which I did. Game loads to 50% and stops. I’ve let it run for about 15 minutes and then received the instruct on how to force stop. Tried that and no go. Uninstalled and reinstalled with the same results. I’m on a Kindle HDX 3rd gen.

  • Paddy

    Is GOW having log in issues again???

  • Mike Breeden

    same here just lost connection and cant get back on!

  • Steve

    Not working

  • joe

    Cant login either

  • QueenPilak

    Guess so. Can’t get in as well. Tried both by wifi and cell data — no go.

  • Scutternut

    Dropped connection halfway through getting rallied. Tired and want to go to bed, but can’t until I shield

  • Jill

    It’s down …..again

  • mrthc

    Piece of s%×t game down again !! Just purchased a pack and I can’t eve use it

  • Jill

    Let’s see what excuse they use this time

  • Doug Russell

    Gave me a be patient new content incoming screen

  • Deathsound95

    I wouldn’t get too worked up everyone…MZ compensated pretty well last time this happened.

  • Deathsound95

    And MZ will shield everyone.

  • Ashley

    Last time this happened the game started running even glitchier than it was before. Hopefully all these kinks will be worked out its not like they (MZ) don’t have the money. Compensation is one thing, trying to pacify players and never fix any actual issues or add any of these new grand features is another thing entirely.

  • Slayer

    They better or pay up I only had a hour on my shield

  • David Abraham

    MZ uses Cloudfront which has recently been targeted by the hacker group Anonymous for issues not related to MZ or the game itself, however the group has vowed to hack Cloudfront to take it offline. I’m betting MZ is caught in the crossfire and game is down due to Cloudfront being hacked, that’s my personal thought, and of course MZ says its new features, they can’t run out and say the truth.

  • Slayer

    I believe it

  • Miranda Hurley

    Anyone have any information on when it will be back up my shield ran out 2 hrs ago

  • Cesco

    Warum kann MZ nicht die Benutzer warnen?
    Eine Meldung im Blog: Support on monday 01.01.2015 from 01 to 13 h UCT ????
    Schlechte Informationen….

  • PHYCOMAN 488

    Thank you MZ for the huge gold, chest, and extended time. Everyone check your items and you will see a lot of extra gold

  • Randy Shelton

    I haven’t been able to sign into my account since last Friday ,is there a particular reason why?

  • Doc

    Log in is okay, but it will just hang or take forever with almost any request.

  • Dorothy

    Every time I log into my game it shuts right back off again. It is extremely frustrating and I would like to know how to fix it.

  • Elessor

    I play on a Samsung S5 (Lollipop). Game play went fine for the first month but now I have suddenly been unable to play on my home wifi. I can log in but only half the game loads with several items missing and play is impossible. I can play perfectly on friends wifi, public wifi or commercial wifi networks. I can also play via data but that is expensive. I have also tried playing on an older Nexus 4 and have the very same issues. My internet service provider is Shaw in Canada and I connect through their Cisco DPC 3825 Modem. They have not made any software changes in the last month. Connection speeds average 27mps and signal strength averages -55db. All other apps work fine without issue. Contacting & expecting any help from MZ is apparently not an option although I do have a ticket in with them. Anyone have any ideas. I may pick up a dual band router and give it a try.

  • Stephen

    I have not been able to play for about a week now. The game hangs and freezes – I can’t use items or speed ups I get error c1 but my wifi speed is good – same issue on playing on iPad and iPhone

  • Casey graham

    When I click on the game, it loads to 50 percent, then says login failed, server under matainance try again later, but all of my friends can log in. It started doing this yesterday…please help!

  • Serena Cabe

    Can’t load past %20 for the past few days from two different devices. Deleted and reinstalled it and it still won’t work. Its not a service issue EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS PERFECTLY! Its happened several times before. I’m quite frustrated.

  • Casey graham

  • Pudge 747

    Loads to a certain point then stops will not connect

  • Aggravated one.

    Servers slow. Game lagging map refresh takes long wait.Claiming alliance gifts and other button clicks throughout take 15 seconds to respond. Mail… not everyone seems to have this issue but many in my alliance report similar problems. What is the issue MZ is a billion dollar company? Fix the problem taking alot of money (100s $$$$) from people …. And cannot keep the product working.

  • Michael Goding

    I use a Verizon Ellipsis 10, and cannot get the game to load. Been this way since before Christmas. Have a ticket with MZ, but they are useless. Any ideas?

  • Enaj Tergram Morante Alfonga-A

    My Game cannot connect. It has been 10minutes and more and still connecting only

  • Stacey

    When I start the game, it loads to about 70% then throws up a message that says Login Failed. Server is under maintenance. Please try again in a while. I’ve had this for 3 days now. MZ has not responded to my 6+ emails.

  • Stacey

    Did it ever come right? Mine loads to 70%. The I get: Login Failed. Server is under maintenance. Please try again in a while. I’ve had this for 3 days now. MZ has not responded to my 6+ emails. I’ve tried the Force Stop that others had success with (no dice), and uninstalling and reinstalling (also no dice). I’m on a Samsung Galaxy 5.

  • Nick Lorek

    Got attacked when I had two days left on my shield then I could not login,when I finally logged in everything froze- up I was using wi-Fi thinking this was the problem I switched to 4G on my phone did the same thing nothing was responding tryed to re activate peace shield but it would not activate it went all dark and un-responsive this when on for a couple of minutes

  • John

    My friend’s account has been deleted…. I mean it is gone….. We can’t find her city anywhere…. This all happened a few days ago, she tried to login to her account and she couldn’t access her account. She contacted the MZ and all they are saying is that her account is not available at this time and her email address is not linked with any of the Machine Zone account. They are saying “feel free to contact support team”, but they are only repeating the same things over and over. She has spent alot of money already and doesn’t know what to do other than contacting their so called support team, which is not very helpful…. any other suggestions or have you guys ever seen or heard of this before????

    Thank you

  • kirk

    I can’t get past 56% loaded and connecting to server. I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled it. NOTHING!!!
    Same issue.
    I’ve been trying to log on all day.
    My shield is going to expire.
    For one heck of an expensive game it sure has a lot of short falls.

  • kirk

    I can’t even figure out how to call them.
    And besides, any and all tickets I personally submitted to them have always been extremely contentious.

  • Sam

    my game hasnt loaded for 3 days

  • Michal Korkáče

    cannot play last 10 hours. only loading screen.

  • geris

    game hasn’t loaded in 24 hrs, only gets to 79% then shuts off … just purchased a game pack and unable to put up shield,,,,who is going to be responsible for the money this is costing the players

  • P Florez

    Game has not loaded for 2 days now, Game starts and offers a pack at start up, then shuts down after a few seconds. Really sucks that you pay that much to play and MZ doesn’t address any issues. I do not recommend this game to anyone, and it looks like I wasted $1000+ on this crap.

  • laws69

    Updated my iPhone OS two days ago no way my kingdom map will not load unless I’m connected to wifi anyone else having this problem?
