What is error code OWL-0002900F in Skull and Bones?

The error comes with the message "No server available." That's as deep as it gets. When the error appears, it means there is no server for you to join. This could be for a few reasons, which are as follows:

  • Your copy of the game is not updated to the latest patch
  • Ubisoft servers for Skull and Bones are down
  • Servers are overloaded with players, but there is no queue to get in, so you are denied
  • Crossplay servers between PC, Xbox, and PlayStation are not connecting properly

The majority of the time, you did not cause this issue. You should still try all of the following fixes, though, just in case something slipped through:

  • Ensure you update your game to the latest patch
  • Check Ubisoft and/or Skull and Bones social media pages for any indication the servers are down
  • Exit the game and reopen to try and connect to an alternate server
  • Go the Skull and Bones Settings and turn off crossplay
  • Wait for server congestion to die down and try again later in hopes of a spot being opened for you
