I have been playing the older games to earn Forza Rewards points. I am almost done with Forza 3 but for the past several days the server has not been available. Does anyone know anything about this and if it will be coming back? I really wanted to max out my points.

I was doing the same, working on getting the last out of the "days played" counter... Has the server been pulled, putting an end to FM3's life...? Does the server being pulled for FM3 mean that counter is now frozen? Seems like it, on all counts...

Never cared for how some of those stats are only recorded when online, anyway. Or how it's THOSE stats that matter. The game records numerous things, regardless of being online or off; hours doing this, hours doing that, number of podiums, number of victories, miles driven...and yet the rewards system has to recognize something different, independent of what your game, your console, your profile has recorded...even if the two things being referenced are, in fact, the same? Ugh.

I've been having the same issue. The server worked like a week ago, I even played some online multiplayer then, and suddenly the server seems to be down. It's a shame, 'cause I really would have wanted to get the time trial achievement since I finally figured how to get it, but now I can't get in to the leaderboards section...

If the servers are permanently down, it would have been nice to have some kind of a heads up before closing them...

well forza 2 is up and running....still has the leaderboards etc......there is something WRONG with 3 and they can't be bothered to tell us what the problem is and go and fix it........all that hard work getting high on the leaderboards just for them to take it all off? NO WAY I AM BUYING THAT...it's f++ed and we are forgotton about...if this was 4 or 5.....would they just leave it? no....they would fix it pronto

I hope you're right and it isn't that the server/support has been pulled. Maybe the server being moved, or needing maintenance, or something like that...would definitely be preferable to just it no longer being a thing at all.

Does Turn 10 look at this forum? It would be nice to at least be able to get those last few online achievements closed out.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one with this problem. Hopefully this is just a temporary situation, but with the marketplace already being down, I'm fear this may be permanent.

Hi all,

Apologies for the recent intermittent outages, we think we've gotten to the root of the issue and things should be going back to normal now.

Thank you so much for getting Forza 3 running again! Like was mentioned before, a message posted here acknowledging a problem and estimated repair time would relieve our fears and stop a lot of the negative speculations that get posted.

I can only access the marketplace and as I go into the auction house, storefront, and leaderboards it still says the forza motorsport 3 server is not available at this time. Please try again. This has been going on for a week or so and I enjoy playing this game but now I can access what I want to. I need some answers so I can continue to play a game I enjoy.

There do seem to still be random periods of time during which the server is unavailable. I checked just a while back, myself, and had the same issue for a moment, and then a moment later everything was connecting and working properly. All I can say is, try it a few times every five or so minutes, if you have to get on. It should eventually connect.

T10 were having issues over the Christmas and New Year time as none of my FM4 results were updating, took over 3 weeks for all the info to catch up but it's now only a day or so behind so bear with them or just keep checking and you should find it's updated.

I have been trying to gift cars to my friends in Forza 3 and keep getting the message that the server is not available. If T10 at some point does stop the market place, storefront, and online racing for Forza 3, I hope they still keep the ability to gift cars, designs, and other things still available and functioning.

Now for what I've been seeing about what has been going on with the Forza 3 sever, If Turn 10 really did shut down the server for the leaderboards, storefront, and auction house for good, wouldn't Forza 2 be having the same issue since it's an older game?

Also, the pictures I took in Forza 3 that are up in my storefront are still in my gallery. Wouldn't they disappear if the storefront server is long gone?

Yeah, I am missing the sell a tune or paint job from the achievements, but the storefront seems to no longer be active? It this correct? Has it been just down?
