Logged in once at 0510, but crashed on loading screen. Not been able to login since - over 3 hours now.
Was able to login in during the stress tests no problem.
From EU, UK
Support page is down too, its just blank.
So yeah, I have to agree its the worst mmo launch I've experienced by far if I cant even login after 3 hours..
Not really a headstart.
Spvp is broke. Can't join giving everyone (so it seems) a firewall error .
They should have done waves

Official start was only 51 minutes ago. You still have 2 days and 23 hours before the regular players can join.
For what it's worth:
I was having "firewall" type issues just after character creation myself. I run NOD32 AV5, and turned on "Gamer Mode". Solved my problem real quick. Normally, I have ZERO issues running any MMORPG game in "normal mode", but for some reason, GW2 is using ports that are possibly out of the ordinary?
Anyway, if you are using NOD32 Antivirus 5, try enabling "Gamer Mode" under settings.
Hope this helps somebody.
From the NOD32 AV5 Help File:
"Gamer mode is a feature for users that demand uninterrupted usage of their software, do not wish to be disturbed by pop-up windows and want to minimize CPU usage. Gamer mode can also be used during presentations that cannot be interrupted by antivirus activity. By enabling this feature, all pop-up windows are disabled and the activity of the scheduler will be completely stopped. System protection still runs in the background but does not demand any user interaction.
You can enable or disable Gamer mode in the main program window by clicking Setup > Computer then Enable under Gamer mode; or you can enable Gamer mode in the Advanced setup tree (F5) by expanding User interface, clicking Gamer mode and selecting the checkbox next to Enable Gamer mode. Enabling Gamer mode is a potential security risk, so the protection status icon in the taskbar will turn yellow and display a warning. You will also see this warning in the main program window where you will see Gamer mode enabled in yellow.
By selecting the Enable Gamer mode when running applications in full screen automatically checkbox, Gamer mode will start after you start a full-screen application and will automatically stop after you exit the application. This is especially useful for starting Gamer mode directly after starting a game, opening a full screen application or starting a presentation.
You can also select the Disable Gamer mode automatically after X minutes checkbox to define the amount of time (default value is 1 minute). This is used if you only require Gamer mode for a specific amount of time and want to automatically disable it afterwards."

I heard from my friend who was able to log in really early this morning that the game is laggy as hell. Not going to score the game on this, but so far ... extremely bad of course. Going back to The Secret World (which had a 10/10 launch) for a while, but itching to try GW2 ( though I don't think I will like the cartoony "little mouse characters" things, but we'll see). I loved gw1 to bits, but have a bad feeling about gw2 - especially now after tsw launch.
The reason TSW probably had a better launch was because no one bought it.
enjoying GW2 and TSW myself , both are great games no need to add stupid comments like this guy , really tells someones lack of education when you have to bash something because your fanboy butt is hurt because of a less then stellar launch.
Don't like the game because it's too hard for you ok cool don't make comments moves on and play GW2 , so yeah back to GW2 LOL.
Lol gona summarise the responses in order of appearance.
TSW - AoC - Aion - WOW - EVE - Fallen Earth - Co - Rift - || XNA C# Java Development

Well yes I know, but I was not the one conserned about playing 3 days ahead of "regular" consumers :P. Just pointed out he had still plenty of headstart left.
Originally posted by TomBaker_fan Tsw had issues, they allllllll do.
To be fair I know it will clear up, but TSW did not have issues like this.
