I facing this same problem since yesterday..is it really down?
The servers in question are called Rock Central, not the Rock Band Network. RBN's a completely different thing, and I'm pretty certain this should be shifted to Software Support--or at least the main forum.
DLC on DLCQuickPlay.com. Gamertag is the same as my Forum name. Hit me up if you wanna play!
ouh i miss read the title haha...ya i can login to Store but cant go online play multiplayer with others..its keep saying "connecting to the rock central game servers" . also try reboot modem, try using other region account also same. My buddy also face same problem.
It's just lately that it has been an ongoing thing. All updated scores are stored locally and when Rock Central is sorted out, they'll post automatically when you can reconnect. (Keeping in mind that they may not display on the leaderboards immediately, but that's more or less normal anyway.)
One would think that over 2 years since the store opened and nearly 3 years since the project has been public knowledge, people know what that the Rock Band Network is a user generated content initiative for which this is the forum to chat with creators, authors [no Oxford comma] and play testers.
Not when every other thing on the planet talks about its network and how it connects with stuff.
Calling it Rock Band Network was simply too vague. I don't know if it was to keep up the whole Rock Band Nickelback thing, but it was never a good choice.
