Turbine, I get that you just had a major update/expansion hit. I understand there are bound to be plenty of bugs. And I understand that you're working your hardest to get things fixed, and working in it's ordinary, moderately buggy way. Now, that being said allow me to be slightly upset about the fact that your game clearly doesn't want me to be able to log in and play.
After playing a couple hours before work today, I was looking forward to logging in when I got home and trying to reach level 9 on my TR. After the first couple of tries to log in and the launcher not working correctly/going unresponsive I figured it was going to just be one of those nights.
8 unresponsive launcher's later I finally get logged in for the first time, things load smoothly and I get into game, where I can't move. Can't do use chat. Can't send tells. /sigh I log off and try again.
Attempt #2: Again, I log in, loads fast enough, get in game, and can't move. Same as before.
Attempt #3: Same story, except now I can use chat! or, long enough for my TR partner to tell me I don't show up in their friends list when I log on. Then I get this:
[Error]: Your connection to the chat server has been lost.
[Error]: Your connection to the chat server has be reestablished.
And this repeated constantly for about 15 minutes. All the while I couldn't move, couldn't interact with anything, obviously couldn't use chat... And I was never kicked from the server, and I never went red.
Attempt #4 got the same results as attempt #3.
Look, Turbine. I get things are hectic right now, but seriously. Get your sh!t together.
Also, why the hell do I have to download the same "FR Loading screens", DE Splash screens" etc. every damn time I try to log in?
