Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker has arrived and players are jumping into the latest and hopefully greatest FFXIV expansion. Unsurprisingly, the expansion is incredibly popular, even in early access, and players on especially large servers are having some trouble getting in at times. In this guide, we’ll go over what error code 2002 is in FFXIV, and how you can fix it.
How to Fix Error Code 2002 in FFXIV Endwalker
Let’s get right down to it. First, what is error code 2002? This error code is related to server congestion. Essentially, when the servers are overloaded with too many players, even beyond what the queue can handle, this error code can appear and give players that are trying to log in at this time additional troubles getting onto the queue and into the game. In short, it means there are too many people trying to get onto FFXIV: Endwalker all at once.
There’s no clean-cut way to fix it, but there are some things you can do. The Square Enix-supported way to fix error code 2002 is to simply log out, wait a few minutes, and trying logging back in again. Beating your head against the wall and trying to go back in without logging out first doesn’t appear to work, so don’t do that. Log out, grab some coffee, a little snack, maybe watch someone on Twitch, then go ahead and try it again and you may be able to circumvent FFXIV error code 2002.
If you’re getting it over and over, even after logging out, we suggest just waiting until later. There’s going to be various amounts of congestion during the day and you might be trying to log in during prime time on a large server.
