This evening, I have been trying to log in. After 5-10 attempts, I can get in, only to be kicked out of the game (after "Reading Content" reaches 100% and five minutes) with the following message: "Lost connection to the server. The server may be down for maintenance" and "Failed to authenticate with the character server."
I have not changed anything but Nvidia drivers.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Someone on the French forum had this problem earlier today.
Same for me during the midday hours. Even the forums and the official website where gone for a while.
I would blame my firewall, but not when it happens at random points during loading and gaming and my firewall log does not show something as blocked. So i guess it was a very unstable server today for various reasons.
