I am wondering if anyone else frequently goes through their log in info, then the PLAY button only to see the SE logo and then a black screen instead of the Opening menu for the game? If anyone has a solution to this intermitent problem I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!
Yes this happened to me 2 days ago. Nothing fixes this you just have to keep trying, it took me about 6 tries with 5 minutes between tries and it just worked. I changed nothing before or after the problem it just started working again so it is on the server side.
I ran into this problem after tweaking around with my Nvidia control panel settings... I set them all back to defaults (application controlled) and the problem went away. Game seems to run best in windowed mode -- at least for me.
This happens to me very often. When the white screen doesn't show up, I just close the window (click the X on the top right of the window) and try again immediately. It always goes through the second time for me.
