WarZ - Server/Forum Temp Fix


A lot of people are currently having issues joining not only the WarZ servers/Updater but also the forums. I myself have been having this issue all evening, here is the temporary fix, in other words you can revert back if you so wish.

It's most likely down to a DNS issue and many of us including my self are using the google DNS servers. I've changed back to my ISP DNS servers and everything is working again. Here is a rough guide in how to change your DNS servers. I'd recommend if you are using google DNS (as i was), to change and use your default ISP DNS servers or another DNS server.
 Once that is done read below before trying WarZ again
  • Click Start.
  • Select Programs.
  • Select Accessories and locate the Command Prompt shortcut.
  • Right click the Command Prompt shortcut and select Run as Administrator from the drop down menu.
  • Type ipconfig /release in the command prompt.
  • Wait a few seconds for a reply that the IP address has been released.
  • Type ipconfig /renew in the command prompt.
  • Wait a few seconds for a reply that the IP address has been re-established.
  • Type ipconfig /flushdns in the command prompt.
  • Use Ipconfig /all to make sure the DNS servers have changed
  • Close the command prompt and you should be good to go!
If it STILL doesn't work, Try resetting your router... Granted this isn't fun, I was hoping to be able to play WarZ most of tonight before Hospital, but these constant down times are really annoying :(

UPDATE : I also tried the Open DNS servers and that doesn't work either, the ONLY DNS servers that are currently working with WarZ for me are my ISP's!

UPDATE 2: A member by the name of HalfzeRO has told me of another DNS server listing that gets the game up and working, one is a Norton DNS server and the other a DNS Recursive Server!

  • 198.153.192.1 = Norton DNS 
  • 156.154.70.1 = Recursion DNS
