Tiny Tina's Wonderlands server status is sadly in a state of disarray. With Tiny Tina's release date on March 25, it's come with a lot of fanfare and, in typical Gearbox fashion, a host of server issues.

On March 26, at 10:08 a.m. ET, SHiFT Status, the company responsible for the maintenance of Gearboxes servers, took to Twitter to acknowledge public annoyance regarding online connectivity issues plaguing Tiny Tina's Wonderland. "The team is currently working on reports of connection issues regarding SHiFT cross-play forcing players offline," ShiFT reported.

The comments regarding this announcement were a mixture of frustration, apathy, and snarky condescension from fans, again in typical Gearbox fashion. The server issues continued to plague players, on and off all through Saturday, with continued Twitter posts assuring fans that the issues were going to be patched, and more fan outrage, as they stated their frustration with not being able to play with their friends. The issues began to start to clear up around 5:00 p.m. ET as with a final update, a portion of the Twitter comments confirmed that they were able to finally get online.

Tiny Tina has been a beloved game by fans of the original Borderlands games, for its humor, gameplay, and art style. But even with all of its positive qualities, fans of the game don't have infinite patience, especially with a company as controversial as Gearbox. The full-priced game already has a load of DLC and content stapled to it, and fans rightfully expect at least a decent server connection. Whether these issues remain or are finally fixed after these first few road bumps remain to be seen.
