I can't connect to the WRC 8 Online Servers. Anyone having same problem? On PC via Epic and I have disabled my Windows firewall yet still no connection. WRC Status page says online servers are lived but I can't seem to connect. Every other software fine via my internet connection just WRC got the problem.

Can someone confirm they can connect to the online servers on PC?

If I select weekly challenges etc. I get message:

the wrc 8 server cannot be assessed

Don't want to waste time trying to find if my connection at fault as the WRC 8 website says all servers ok.
 
Me too.

The strange thing is that when accessing with cmd ping command, it can communicate normally with 104.199.55.183 which seems to be a game server.
I am currently sending a message to bigben and waiting for a reply.

If so, you may be able to connect by downloading and using the Easy fix at the bottom of this page.(https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3140245/)
The reason is that WRC8 uses the old encrypted communication which is the default of Windows7, so it cannot connect. This easy fix describes in the registry to use new encrypted communication by default.

I don't think that IP is their game server as it seems to be Google Cloud. I am on W7 and that update is already installed. I've also emailed them asking the question.

I assumed that the online service was not available yet as I've not seen any videos online of any multiplayer gameplay. Everything else I have is reacheable via my connection so must be their server not online.

You were correct. Once I downloaded and ran the Easy Fix 'wizard' I am now able to connect to the WRC8 Server.

Thanks for that info.

Same for me since a week or less, also on 8.1 Pro, tried all sorts of things, including completely disabling firewall and av (however before this it was working fine with both on). Any help is appreciated.

Guess this esports competition is going to be pretty damn easy since it looks like only me and hand full of other people can actually play online.:roflmao: Brand new i20 here I come!

Quick question to all you guys having problems connecting. Is it just trying to play online with other people you're having trouble with? Or can you not do the weekly challenges either?
