Alright I understand people are having issues with the laucner and what have you but I almost feel this is not the same issue since I can not even make it into the game. I have just installed the game and when I open the launcher log in and hit engage, the screen comes up to full screen, flashes once, then goes back to the small laucnher screen and is unresponsive. I have as far as I know allowed the game and everything through windows firewall and aside from that I can not figure it out.
I assume others have had this issue somewhere along the line but I have not found it in the forums.
As I said, I feel this is different from the usual launcher issue but I could very well be wrong and just have to wait it out.
