Same for me, it tells me the login server times out, then shows a log in screen, I log in says connecting to account server, then says disconnecting from accounts server and goes back to the login screen. Is this just traffic or do I need to enable certain ports on my firewall? I'm in NZ.
Same problem for the last 6 hours. It keeps timing out. I tried changing the proxy, forcing the verify, relaunching, repatched and nothing works. I got other guild mates (elleven of them to be precise) who downloaded, patched up and launched into the game, with no problem at all, while I'm stuck here. It does make me question if this is traffic related when friends show up after I have and waltz right in while I can't get past the front door.
I want to be helpfull. I want to support beta and I want this game to do well. I've been waiting for this game's release for a long time, but truth be known; I don't know how much longer I can keep entering in my password and staring at the same screen over & over again, hour after hour.
Well, it appears that my beta testing will only extend as far as the login screen, so I may as well provide as much information as I can on this one, singular problem. So far, I have tried to log in from 4:30-7pm, 8pm-9:30, 12:00-12:30 and 3:30-4am.
Switching my proxy server to US or Eu will only producer an error message that suggests that I change my proxy back to "None". Setting my proxy server to "None" will time out.
I have also tried to purposely enter in a wrong password to see if it would make a difference and it does not. The login still times out.
I don't know if this makes a difference, but I pre-ordered the DDE package through Atari. I did read in another thread that someone else was having similar problems with logins and he purchased the CE package.
