Why Can’t I Login to Wayfinder? Fixes and Solutions

Trouble logging in? You're not the only one...

Wayfinder is a newly launched MMO in early access that sees you take control of one of the Wayfinders, a powerful group of heroes who seek adventure in a mysterious and hostile world. However, after the launch on August 17, many players were stuck struggling to log in and play the game. This was due to a serious login error and instances of overcrowded servers.

Wayfinder Login Issue - How to Fix

Unfortunately, the only fix for the Wayfinder login issue at the moment is patience. Upon launch, the servers for Wayfinder were incredibly overloaded due to massive interest. This isn’t a bad thing! There was just a slight underestimation of just how many people wanted to play this exciting new title at launch.

The best way to solve the issue is to monitor official channels. Head to the Wayfinder Discord (although don’t be surprised if it’s filled with other players struggling with the same issue). Check the Wayfinder X page

The developers have currently been very good with updates on the downtime and any login issues.

Wayfinder Maximum Player Capacity Reached

Late on August 17, the Wayfinder devs updated the game with a new error message designed to make things more transparent. This message was "Maximum player count reached." From the Wayfinder Discord:

"After a lot of work our team has found that by instituting a max player count on our servers we're seeing stability as well as keeping players in the know by telling them what exactly is going on by displaying "Maximum player count reached" we ask that you wait a minute or two and try again if you get this message."

Kicked from the game - Wayfinders crashes?

Another common issue is players being kicked from the game while playing. This is again due to overloaded servers. And, like the above issue, patience is the only real key. Keep your eyes locked on Wayfinder’s channels for updates.
