Did not see this posted here yet (although I will admit to having weak Search-Fu), so I wanted to make this official.

Myself, and apparently a few others, have been having trouble connecting to Lamannia. Client downloaded and installed, but it will not connect and update to the latest build. This has been ongoing since 4/12/13. Screenshot below.
Hope to get some feedback as I am eager to try out the new enhancement alpha.
EDIT: Firewall permissions have been verified, and no issues logging in to the live game servers are being encountered.
