The solution is this: Login as usual, it will be stuck at connecting, after a while it will say timeout message, press escape on the keyboard.
Now it won't close the game so it will try to connect again and again, and eventually it will connect you.
Even familiar landscapes will
reveal a different kind of beauty
if you change your viewpoint.
Where these new encounters
and new bonds will lead you...
Such dazzling golden days.
I, too, look forward to
what I might behold.
Everything depends on you friend. Be strong don't give up. Don't let the sadness hurt you. Be strong and prevail!
