Same problem here. Whenever I try using the EU proxy, I can't connect to the login server and end getting booted back to the login screen. This happens every single time, regardless of time of day. The US proxy doesn't give me this problem, although it doesn't do anything for lag or connection issues.
beta - get use to it, been watching for days about these problems
Yeah right, it's only beta...
But wait a minute it's actually "OPEN" beta, the time in a programs life when it gets to show off it's new stuff to the world and entice players to it, when it's supposed to be more or less bug free, the time they iron out last minute little kinks, .......definetly not the time to realise there are potentially game breaking problems like constant D/c's HUGE lag and rubberbanding etc... or that living in the EU means being kicked when the US wakes up ! (No offence intended to my American brothers and sisters).
