How to check if The First Descendant Servers are down

The First Descendant was released on July 2, 2024. As a new online game, there are bound to be a few teething issues. NEXON has already sent out one set of freebies to players' mailboxes for their launch day issues, but there are more issues on July 3 than there were on release day.

Here are the best ways to check The First Descendant's server status:

Unfortunately, it seems that the community are beating the devs to any updates about the server being down. I checked each of the official locations and there wasn't anything about the July 3 server issues.

But, on the Discord in the Community-Support channel, there are plenty of players updating each other about their log-in and server issues.
