Accessing Final Fantasy XIV's servers isn't always easy, and the release of Endwalker hasn't helped matters. With the global semiconductor shortage it is currently difficult to increase the capacity of game servers and the 2002 errors could occur.
FF14 Code Error 2002
Square Enix even answered the problem and provided advice:
“Error 2002” may be displayed when selecting a character in the Character Selection menu. This error is displayed when the login server is experiencing high amounts of traffic or when the number of characters waiting in a login queue for a logical Data Center exceeds 17,000. This is a measure to prevent the server from crashing due to extreme traffic overloads.
Should you encounter Error 2002 when attempting to log in, we apologize for the inconvenience, but ask that you wait a while before trying again."
Likewise support is already available, however it would be a good idea not to contact them for connection issues related to error 2002.
