The Rock Central service is not available right now.
I keep starting the game, getting to "Discovering Downloadable Content" and then it just cuts to that. Is anyone else having this problem right now?

    apparently there have been electricity problems in the area there, which are causing this.

    Is there any reason we need to be connected just to have scores and powerups? I don't even care abotu leaderboard scores, I just want to see which tracks I've palyed and use powerups.

    all the data is stored online, including number of coins, scores and well. pretty much everything.

    since you need coins to get powerups, you need to be online unfortunately

    The lights are back on.
    Cambridge Police reported on Twitter that power has been restored after a blackout left much of East Cambridge in the dark.

    What makes that a facepalm? Cambridge Police Twitter has been known for announcing things far more quickly to the public than other cities with police who scramble to issue a public announcement in front of news reports, stating the obvious sometimes hours after the topic has been unofficially known

    Unless you were facepalming the notion that Twitter was their only means of getting information out, leaving thousands in the dark as far as information goes, which isn't true

    Unrelated to the previous power outages, but we're working on it. Sit tight, sorry for the hassle.

    This is why online only is terrible. Here I am wanting to play RBB but I can't fully enjoy it because so much depends on those servers. The only things that SHOULD depend on the servers are goal progress and score wars. Updates the the coin economy should happen when connected online and then continue to be effective when Rock Central goes down or the user is offline. New scores would be saved to a temporary file to by synchronized later.

    I just logged on and played a Score War and there wasn't anything wrong.

    I guess it's only not working on the Xbox360, because I just tried again and it's still won't connect

    It was not working for me on 360 yesterday morning but was working later in the afternoon.
    Online only is a problem in a lot of games, NHL 13 is crippled big time if the servers go down you can't play 60-70% of that game when it goes down period. At least you can play blitz (without power-ups).

    I am also unable to connect. I wanted to do my goals on blitz, but I had to resort to RB3. Not that that's a bad thing, but I like to make progress on my blitz.

    Still looking into it, same as I posted yesterday. No need to update every few hours, getting numbers and names of users affected is enough.

    We're following up with Live Ops to see if they need me to ask for more info. I'll update when I know more.
  • edited December 2012
    Okay, here's the info that Live Ops has asked us to collect. If you could provide any of the information below (360 users only, please) we'll make sure they get it to help test Rock Central connectivity.

    Gamer Tag:
    Region (US, UK, etc.):
    The exact error message you receive when trying to connect to RC:
    Are you unable to connect at all or disconnecting mid play?:
    Are you able to connect sometimes, most times, or not at all?:
    When did you start having trouble connecting to RC?:

    To provide some additional context, we are still seeing activity on the servers and users are connecting and playing and logging scores. We'll do what we can to get everyone back up and rocking ASAP.

    I just tried it and got the message, pressed A, asked if I wanted to play in offline mode, pressed B which sent me back to the main menu, pressed A again and it loaded my DLC again, and then connected to Rock Central properly. Currently working
