Connecting to the character server....

Been sitting there for about 15min - tried launching the game as administrator - still the same thing. I guess there's an issue occuring right after auth upon charcter select (auth works fine).

 

:(

 

Edit - been about 20min now - Houston we have a problem.

 

And we're in - took about 23min...what's up with that?

    Had the same issue. Just waited a few mins, hit cancel and tried again. After a few times I got in. Goodluck.

    They had a major storm up north which knocked out Amazon, Netflix for a few hours. If the TSW servers are up there it might be a bit clogged.

    Happens to me whenever I skip the opening cinematics of the logos. If you let them run their course and then login, you should be fine.

    Had this problem in beta. It was due to firewall settings....

    lol, that is a weird bug you got there.

    I actually never saw those logos, and have yet to have any problem with the game.

    If it doesn't connect within 10 seconds, cancel it and try again, took my 5 attempts doing it that way. No point letting it sit there doing nothing for 15-20minutes.

    Exactly! Just cancel and re-try. Usually works nicely the second time around.

    Happened to me yesterday too, had to cancel and try again about 3 times.  I assumed it was because so many people were logging on.
