ERROR-black ops server is not available at this time" NOFIX?

Hi all I never experienced any problems with black ops on my desktop. I live in the Netherlands and I am on a fast network fibre power 50 mbit upload rate/ 50 mbit download rate. I always get a low ping on any server 15-20 ping.

I played allot of hours/months fine with friends online but after the last update on steam patch 1.08 (something like 8 days ago) I got this very irritating ERROR:





"error black ops server is not available at this time try again later. Please visit www.callofduty.com/blackops/status/update"

When I check the link there are no updates, all servers are online...





Activsions customer help gives old solutions that didnt work:

I tried everything to solve this problems but I never made changes on my system it only happend after the latest patch. I get instantly kicked out in anygame in 1-2 hours that means I cant play long games like zombies if im kicked out at round 10-15 every time. Also on multiplayer i got kicked out everytime I must restart the game to play again for 30 min till i get this error again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some things i tried that don't work:

-Removed clientregistry.blob from the steam folder and restart system after.

-www.portforward.com says all ports are open on router. ( I have a static IP, firewall off, AV off, also tryd reset router)

-Steam: Verified integrity of game cache & defragmented cache files (all files 100% ok)

-Full reinstall / re-downloaded through steam.

-up-to-date with windows 7 Ultimate x64

-Steam-Guard DISABLED don't work

-Steam-Cloud Disabled and Enabled both don't work

-Cleaned registry

-Added compatibility-mode for blackops.exe / BlackOpsMP.exe to windows XP service pack 2/3, Vista and to Win 7 all have the same issue.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My system =

i7 860 cpu @ 2,80

8gb RAM

AMD HD6850

Win 7 Ultimate x64

50mbit download+50mbit upload rate fast fibre connection (Netherlands)



I have a Xbox & PC on the same router connected, I never experienced any problems on my Xbox. So its 100% because of the latest steam patch.





Allot of people experiencing the same issue after the latest steam black ops update. Dont come here to troll please stay on-topic.

Seems like the developers try to dodge these forums hopefully they will give a decent feedback....



some news sites showing this issue;

AFTER 3-4 WEEKS



Its all fixed by itself....wow is this how you treat all your customers without announcing there's a stupid mistake made by YOUR/the server moderators?? I haven't changed any settings I stopped playing this game for 3-4 weeks and it happend like I suspected gameservers.com just made a huge mistake after patching the game allot of fibre connection gamers got this irritating disconnect/error every 5 min. And after 3-4 weeks you finally figured it out and fixed it or maybe by accident? Treyarch developers are disgusting...and negative answers by your helpdesk/service by telling people "ITS YOUR FAULT check your firewall/router". This game has the worst communicating/feedback developers ever. I have nothing more to say.

I had this same problem......



TRY THIS thread for the answer.

""Go to steam library, right click on COD BO MP and click properties. Select the local files tab and then chose the verify integrity of game cache files option. I had this problem with another game and my game files did not match the files steam had and got that same error. The game was patched Friday so maybe the patching process did not work correctly on your machine?""

Stay on-topic please you did not read my first message; I said I allready used all steam tools; "-Verified integrity of game cache & defragmented cache files"



Anyway I just had a fresh reinstall/full game download. Still dont work first try on the new install when searching for a match I got this error message again.



My advise is to not buy this game. All I can do is wait for a new patch / working fix. Today I played all day on my xbox blops without any problems also with the new map pack, Treyarch dont sell yourself to microsoft please a customer = customer doesn't matter from witch console or pc....Where is the internet freedom you dirty dictators.

I'm telling you it's has to be an issue with the server host, gameservers, because it's a localized issue. If it was a game issue or a steam issue, it would be widespread. I haven't seen anyone from the US post with this problem. It seems to be confined to Europe. At least that's where I would start to look.

I don't know where to start I am out of solutions...I payed allot of money for this game and now I can't play for 1,5 week because the developers rush out there patches and broke my product. all I can do is wait for the developers to react and do something about it , but the question is how long does it take for a developer to watch there own forums(also steam forums)?



I am goin contact activision customer center again and see how they respond this is ridiculous.
