Use "Disconnect" and go back to the title screen to try again instead of "Retry".
If that still doesn't work after multiple tries, you can try the DNS workaround:
1. From the Xbox Dashboard, select the System Blade.
2. Select Network Settings
3. Select Edit Settings
4. Select DNS Settings
5. Select Manual Settings
6. Input 18.104.22.168 for the primary DNS number and 22.214.171.124 as the secondary DNS number.
7. Test the connection to see if your connection still works.
8. Play the game and see if it will log you in.
It might be best to use local DNS servers if you're outside the USA.
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
