using this method it started working for me on steam:

I’ll merge this thread into one of the others…hold tight…initiating phaseshift…

Hopefully that wasn’t too bumpy.

It’s not just Shift for me, but hotfixes aren’t applying either. Checked all kinds of settings for my machine and network prior to seeing this thread, but I also submitted a ticket. We’ll see.


personal update: tried the firewall tipp - thanks for posting !
it seems to work now, hotfix also incomming.

after checking all the boxes (allow everything) it worked

ok, guys.
SHI(f)T servers have some problem. I’m found twitter account

The servers are still down. How is that after 16h they still haven’t fixed their servers. Might as well have just let us play on steam at least

Please fix your servers. And wake up whoever you need to fix this - how is this not a priority and how does is gearbox not aware of their own issues - is there no monitoring here ?

My fix involved me quiting and restarting the epic games launcher before firing up borderlands 3. i am currently playing with a friend on steam so maybe it has a similar fix i hope this helps. and this is specifically for those who have the problem of being disconnected mid game and not being able to sign back into shift while borderlands 3 is running.

yes, and this is boring. 6 month beta-test in EGS and so big problems.

Again, unable to connect

I still can’t log in either. I tried linking a fresh SHiFT account to Steam, and waited over the weekend in case SHiFT could fix something on their side, but I still can’t play coop.

I’m guessing the Shift Servers are still down? I can’t connect to to it at all.

I haven’t been able to connect to shift since the patch on the 13th. I have submitted multiple tickets, but nothing the email suggested works.


Played completely fine with a friend yesterday and now neither of us can connect to shift

tried linking my epic and removing my firewall stuff but none of it works


May just be a temporary issue? I’m not seeing any scheduled maintenance on the SHiFT status Twitter feed. If it continues to be an issue and a restart doesn’t resolve the problem, you can drop support ticket - make sure you choose SHIFT as the game issue.
