After dealing with patcher issues for the past two days (no p2p at my apartment complex), I was finally able to get to a login screen (hooray!). I went ahead and added my code to the SE site and did the character registration so it gave me actual permission to create a new toon.
Anyway, when i go into play and I hit the screen that asks me to select a character, I click on new character. Nothing happens after that whatsoever. It doesn't lock up since i can still move the mouse. All i get is the grey rectangle and the music playing, but nothing comes up telling me that I can do anything.
Am I missing the point or is this just more launch-week issues?
