No solution yet, but there is a work around.   Go to your network settings, hit advanced settings go to DNS and make your primary and secondary DNS

Hi all

im trying to join a non-dedicated server on the Xbox version played on a pc (I’m on an Xbox one)

however it comes up with the host connection has timed out (or similar)

any fixes for this?

no mods, NAT is open

it works when I run the non dedicated server and my partner can join that but partner wants to host it


any suggestions?

the windows client is a total mess, and the way the team handle things is a total joke, wildcard are the most unprofessional developers i have ever encountered in all of my years gaming they need to take a look at how they treat the player base


the games not in early access anymore, its a full release, and still riddled with every bug and issue it was while in development. 

a little communication with the players will go a long way... havent you learned anything this past 4-5 years?


Theres literally no reason to invest time into this game anymore the devs dont care. If you're as sick as me, there's a good chance you are entitled to a full refund of the base game and all the dlc's but you'll have to go through small claims court, dont worry, they'll do the work for you, i dont see any reason to let wildcard keep our money at this point

I cannot log into any official server. it says address not found on any server i have tried to log into for the last 5 hours. I have restarted my router/modem/computer and reinstalled the game. is there anything else that can be done. i have already reported it to the outage page but my tribe mates can connect so the server isn't down. it was working fine earlier then just started doing this.

I get this message when I try to log in to any server, official or unofficial. I'm still on 780.10, but the server is on 780.11. I'm playing thru the Microsoft store on PC. My brother is able to log in using his Xbox on the server, but every time I try, I get the above message 'Could not retrieve address'. 

Anyone have any solutions to this? I've restarted my router, my modem, my computer, turned off my firewall and anti-virus. Nothing has worked so far. I've tried to update the game in the Microsoft store, it says all the latest updates have been installed.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, all.
