What is actually going with Call of Duty Warzone servers?

The community speculates that the players who have incurred bans and have suffered IP bans are being targeted. Legitimate players will not be facing this error, but the theory has fallen flat as more reports continue to surface. Players have claimed that after restarting the game a few times, the title resumes to normalcy, allowing players to log in.

More explanation from charlieIntel, states that it is indeed a bug and is appearing randomly. The new servers are designed to only allow ‘whitelisted’ players to hop in, while untrusted gamers will be locked out. It is also being said that only players of certain regions are facing the issue that is causing them to be kicked out, as the issue also applies to custom lobbies.

According to a report by PiunikaWeb, the servers actually offer two layers of ‘whitelist’ that allow players to jump into the game. Pro players like Swag, HusKerrs, and more who get reported more often will play on different servers. Meanwhile, the other layer of the Whitelist will allow players to host custom private lobbies, tournaments, and more. It will keep the uninvited guests out of the servers and present the new ‘whitelist’ error.

Fixing this issue is also quite simple, as players will only have to restart the game client a couple of times to resolve it. In certain cases, fans have re-downloaded the entire game to fix the problem.
