All of the NA/EU servers are down at the moment while they address congestion issues. Also, only about 1/3 of the JP are available so you can run around on a newbie character for a few if you'd like or just hang out until the Legacy side comes back up. It sucks, but I figured we'd see this, even with stress tests under their belt.
