Failed to retrieve data

Can't believe it's still there after 4 years. So I tried to play against my buddy and when I pressed to launch the game it writes failed to retrieve data code error blablabla with numbers and stuff. Twice in a row. My friends was in the pregame warmup while I couldn't make it to the game. Menu errors are probably what the most frustrating thing about this game. I finally decided to play away and it worked. Pffff

  • It's because they are too lazy to customize the error messages.. or they don't want you to know why the error occurs...

  • It's not a router problem as I do not get that message often. But at this precise moment where I only have 10 hours of play, I'd like the game to go faster in the menus and translating to the ice.
