. . . I waited for at least 1 minute, then used the Task Manager and ended the game client to shut down the game and now I cannot reconnect to the launcher. It tries 10 or so times then gives me a pop-up about it being unable to connect and for me to check my connection. I am able to do other thing online, like post this.
I have *not* shutdown or restarted my computer; other than that, I am unsure what to try.
I will also send this in as a Bug Report.
(Was trying to zone into Lemuria, got to the zone info page, filled the loading bar about half way, and was trying to patch 4 files but the patch did not show any progress for at least 1 minute.)
