Can not create account (PC)

No problem with the internet connection as far as I can tell. I live in Czech Republic. I know that there can be issues if the "wrong" download region is chosen, so I have tried changing that to both Sweden and also US-Minnesota(my friend who it works from uses that region).

The error message is "Can not establish connection to server". First I thought there was maintenance on the server but it is working for my friend.

Hello, can you launch the game and trigger this message and then copy the content of Management.log and Game00.log located in Documents/BloodBowl2 on please?

Hi, here is the text displayed in both logs.

Having a similar issue and still looking for a resolution. Game says that it cannot contact the servers.

I don't see anything wrong in the log, could it be a network issue with your router/firewall?
I'll invoke @FHI-HelpDesk because I'm afraid I can't help you on that matter

Otherwise, please reset the Hosts file back to the default:

  1. Open the Notepad and copy the following text to the file:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself.
# localhost
# ::1 localhost

  1. On the 'File' menu, select 'Save as', type "hosts" in the 'File name:' box then save the file.
  2. You will be prompted to check the file name extension. Click 'Yes' to confirm that the file name extension will not be '.txt'.
  3. Press the keys Windows Start (bottom left) and 'R' from the keyboard to open the 'Run dialog box' and type the following line:


  1. Press the Enter key.
  2. Rename the Hosts file to Hosts.old
  3. Copy or move the 'Hosts' file that you created in step 3 to the 'Etc' folder.
  4. If you are prompted to enter an administrator password, click on 'Continue'.
  5. Run the game and test.
