[b]Update: If you have been blocked by recurring Centipede errors after having been able to play successfully (#3 below), we are applying a fix that will resolve the issue. Unfortunately, the solution will reset your characters. This is expected to happen over the next few hours. [/b] WORKAROUND: To ensure that you no longer hit this issue, do not delete characters after using the vault in the tower. Original Post: We've been investigating the reports of centipede errors that have been popping up on the forums. There are a few ways you can hit centipede errors. 1. I have never connected and get centipede when I try to sign on 2. I randomly get centipede when I play [b][u]3. I was able to play just fine, and all of a sudden I get centipede errors all the time and can't sign in[/u].[/b] 1 and 2 appear to be networking issues. This thread is concerned with [b]#3[/b]. #3 is an issue that we're tracking internally that I want to get more info about. Based on user reports and assistance, we identified a timing issue having to do with swapping quickly items between characters using the tower vault. We applied a fix and did some fixup of a number of affected users. However, not all affected users could be fixed up. So we're continuing to investigate solutions. We suspect there may be more ways to hit this error, and we need your help to find them. If you were at some point able to play [b]after the maintenance period[/b], but then were blocked from signing on due to centipede errors, please reply to this post with the following: 1. Gamertag / Online ID of all affected profiles (send this to me in a PM if you're not comfortable posting this information publicly) 2. What was the last time you were able to properly sign in and play (date, time and time zone) 3. What was the last time you tried to sign in and got centipedes (date, time and time zone) 4. Had you used the account vault at all between being able to play and seeing persistent centipedes? 5. Have you deleted any characters between being able to play and seeing persistent centipedes? 6. if you had not done 4 or 5, please give as detailed an account of your play between when you last played, and when you started seeing centipede errors.
#1 - Thunder720 - XBL tag #2 - @330PM - CST --- I was in a Crucible Match and got dropped out - and have seen Centipede errors since then #3 Trying to log in right now - getting a message the servers are at capacity and I am 2854 in line to play (O.o) #4 - uuhh... I don't believe so - I might have used the Vault in the last time I was in Tower about 1300 CST? Maybe? #5 - Negative. Warlock will be my only class at this time. #6 - I first saw the Centipede Error when I was punted from the Crucible match I was playing - Venus Map - 3 point Domination. I got frustrated trying to log back in - I did patch the game - but then stuck in a DVD or 2 and cooked a lasagna for dinner. When I tried to log back in - it patched at that point - and kept spitting Centipede errors at me. I've been trying to research it since about 1830 or connect to the Bungie site and get answers as to what is going on. Now - I am 2854 in line to play. awesome - I should be able to play when most people go to bed.
