Seems for the passed few days logging in has been a little clunky. Will get stuck at verifying account for long period of time, then will show server, then gets stuck at connecting before character selection.
Seems to correlate with the recent increase in player base. Ever since it jumped from 130ish to 170ish, I have seen clunkiness while logging in.
Not sure if there is correlation, but I’ve asked around and some others have experienced it as well.
Haven’t been able to successfully log in for about an hour now.
