It's certainly not something you're doing wrong on this one. If you're already in the game then you're inside the system and the connection being throughput is hanging and you're timing out. I've had the same kinds of problems off and on. Unfortunately, the only thing I can suggest is just trying it at a different time.
I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear, but hopefully it gives you some peace of mind knowing you're not the only one with these issues.
