Unable to login on all accounts...

Well, unlike Nlannie who was checking for the servers to be up every 15 seconds, I didn't check again until this morning :lol: . To my surprise they were back up. I changed all my passwords and tried to login, and keep getting "The operation timed out." If I type the wrong password it tells me so, so I know that it is communicating to some degree.

Anyone else having this problem today?

Only time I've seen this before is when the servers are really busy and if you keep trying to login eventually you get in, but I've tried a lot, and still no dice.

Yeah I have the same operation timeout, but I hear people are having the underage dialog box. From the speculation on SoE boards, the consensus is its a billing error that is preventing logins.

No such luck here, still getting operation timeouts. And just try to login to finish patching, still have about 15ish hours to go, this really delaying me.

I just logged into my station account on the webpage then tried logging into game and it worked. So if your still having trouble, try that.
