Thor, when your on the launcher, after entering you initial login details, in the top left corner is a 'options' button in yellow writing. click that and it will show you the proxy options. (EU, US, NON) choose one, close and relaunch the launcher.
to say I'm disappointed is an understatement... I may just go ahead and cancel my pre-order and let everyone know who has been waiting for this release to forget about it... if the devs can't even take the time to at least answer the questions and make some sort of an explanation, what kind of support is this game going to have once it's released and we are paying for it?
I've been speaking to my friend in the last 10 minutes as well play i was stuck with server not responding while he'was playing fine. He's with Orange and I'm with TalkTalk wonder if it's traffic shaping?
I experienced this as well with Champs beta am trying to narrow it down to my router or ISP as my friends comp is nearly exactly the same. Can people say what ISP they are on when they post to see if a pattern emerges?
