[STAFF] I'm unable to play friend matches

Summary: When I challenge someone and they accept it, I get a “Failed to connect to X” error.

Expected Result: Being able to connect to them.

Actual Results: Failing to connect.


  • I’ve occasionally failed to connect to one particular player in the past but today I’m unable to connect to anyone on my friend list.
  • I forwarded the required ports a while ago. In addition, I disable my Norton 360 firewall prior to connecting to the FS server.

System Information:

  • 2nd Gen Intel Core i5-2430M CPU with a base clock speed of 2.40 GHz
  • 4 GB DDR3 RAM
  • Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics
  • Nvidia GeForce GT540M GPU with 2 GB of VRAM
  • Windows 10 Pro (64-bit)

I would appreciate any help in resolving this issue.

@Sirlin @SG_Staff @Thelo Any ideas?
