This error is preventing players to get into the matchmaking process and therefore players get stuck to the solo mode only. As mentioned, the chances are high that somehow ShiFT servers are having some issue with the technical aspect. Whereas issues with the internet connectivity, game files issues, etc can be other possible reasons. Though there is nothing to do much at your end, you can perform some of the workarounds mentioned below that should help.

1. Check Server Status

First of all, you should try checking the server status of the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands game by visiting the official ShiFT Status Twitter handle. Well, it’s one of the common issues among online multiplayer games to encounter server connectivity errors, multiplayer not working, matchmaking issues, and more. Whether the game server is having issues due to the overloaded number of active players or not, the server optimization or scaling can also be a reason.

Now, if you’re getting the server connectivity error consistently with the multiplayer mode then you can check for the server status. If in case, there is a server downtime or outage at that moment then make sure to wait for a couple of hours at least and then try playing the game again. Luckily, if the server is operational then you can follow the next method.

2. Check your Internet Connection

You should always check for the internet connection at your end whether it’s fast and stable enough or not. Sometimes the poor and unstable internet connection can trouble you a lot. If you’re using a wireless network then try using a wired (ethernet) network to cross-check the issue.

3. Power Cycle your Wi-Fi Router

It’s recommended to perform a power cycle on your Wi-Fi router to refresh the networking glitch from the router side. Just Power OFF the router and disconnect the power adapter from the router. Wait for a couple of minutes and plug back the power adapter into the router. Now, make sure to Power ON the router to check for the issue again.

7. Use LAN Play Session

Affected Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players may experience server connectivity or multiplayer issues in the cross-platform. It may happen due to the cross-platform connectivity and you should try avoiding the cross-platform play option to check if the problem still persists or not.
