Same for me.. they came back once, so I tried to get in and it dumped me while trying to connect.. Of course the JP servers are fine.. >.> This happened because I was taking pics of Wint (Keyser Soze) in his fishing gear with his floating airship.. :(
Beta Forums are getting hammered atm, Taking about a minuet for them to load and to post anything.
Well at least this is happening during the Beta test and not EA, and at least two good things are coming out of this IMO. 1) That we were right to be worried about trying to do final checks so close to launch, 2) There's a lot more NA and EU players than SE anticipated :)
Yeah this game is great so far. I just hope they get all of these issues ironed out before early access. It's really frustrating trying to do anything. I played for hours today with no problems. Then out of nowhere I got booted from the server. Now I have spent the last couple of hours trying to get back in.
