Can't connect to Social Club, can't even connect to the website

So, I've never had this problem before, GTA was fine weeks ago. But now I can't login to my social club account in-game, it just puts me on offline mode and says the rockstar servers are unreachable.

 

Same goes for the website, I can't connect to socialclub.rockstargames.com, it just says that it can't be reached and that the site took too long to respond. I can connect to other websites just fine which I think rules out any internet connection problem. tried using VPN to connect to the website, it connected but doesn't display anything, don't know what that means though. Also tried connecting to the website with my phone via mobile data, connected just fine. Still don't know what it means, though.

 

I have tried re downloading and re installing social club to no avail. Tried re installing GTA which somehow worked for a day but the problem resurfaces the next day.

 

I also tried validating the files (I'm on PC, Steam), changing DNS servers (I don't know if I did it correctly, though) , unplugging and re plugging my internet/ethernet cable, which all failed to fix the problem.

 

Now, the kicker to this is that all my friends can login to the game and connect to the website just fine. Even my friend who has the same internet provider as me.

 

I have searched everywhere for a solution, asked reddit, the steam forums, and now I'm all out of options. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated, guys. Thanks.

1) reset your DNS to your ISP's (or google's 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4)

2) Unplug your router for 10 minutes

3) If that doesn't work, open a command prompt and type

ping socialclub.rockstargames.com

..What does it say?

 

Have you f*cked around with your hosts file?

I have the same problem now for 3 days... I tried everything. I can't connect to SC on my network.

The only time it works is when I use VPN but even than I get the save failed message and can't buy anything...

edit2
ok nvm looks like servers in Europe are f*cked, thats it.

Guys I promise this worked for me

I use Rockstar Games Launcher so it was always telling me is on Offline Mode.

So I used Hotspot Shield VPN  free proxy, try it.

Something is blocking the SC website, either in your house (the router?) or at your ISP (social/kiddie/adult restrictions?)

Anyone found solution to this? Having the same issues for more than a week, cannot connect to https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/ sites as well as rockstar games launcher

 

I have been back & forth with my ISP & Rockstar Support for 2 weeks over this. When I bypass the router I can get in. I fought with different settings...even reflashed to DD-WRT firmware on my router, with no luck. I swapped in an old router, & it works fine. So I have a new router to pick up tomorrow. I don't like the expense, but I'm tired of waiting 36-48 hours for R* to reply, & it's working with the crappy router.

I have the same problem too since last night - can't log in the Social Club from the Epic Launcher. Restarted my PC, verified the game - nothing.

Oh, wow, I can't even start the Social Club uninstaller cause it can't connect to the server. That's rich. :r*:

 

Edit:

OK, I've uninstalled THE GAME LAUNCHER and installed it again and the game is now running.

I am having the same problem, recently moved to Austria and suddenly can't connect. Is this a Europe problem? Both the launcher AND the website fail

I just want to play damn game, funny thing is that socialclub blocked=no R* game launcher=no game purchases via R* warehouse AWESOME BUSINESS RUNNING FROM R* TEAM Responsible for Servers/OnlineServices.

Have you tried trying to connect during the day compared to at night? It seems for me that I can connect when less people are online during the day but at night its just not happening lmao
