With big game launches come big connectivity problems, it appears, on day one of Guild Wars 2’s head-start release.
The MMO is available from today for early purchasers with a three-day headstart. However, despite stress testing beforehand, there appear to be problems connecting for European gamers in particular, with many worldwide reporting firewall and similar error codes.
Indeed, even this PCR story is brought to you courtesy of frustration after being able to get on for half an hour this morning, but not at all since.
You can follow the GW2 Twitter feed for further updates, or just keep trying to hopelessly reconnect. Good luck.
PS. What server are you on?
