It’s been well over a week now, and I can’t play GW2! When I launch the client, it gets stuck at the popup before the username/password fields even appear. It switches back and forth between displaying "Downloading 0KB (0KB/sec) and “Connection error(s) detected. Retrying…”

I can hardly think of a more tragic first world problem. Please help me!!!

You may have an anti-virus program or firewall that is blocking it from coming up. I have AVG and had the same thing occur with AVG prompting me to verify it was ok to run the program. Check that and hope that helps.

It seems to have been my firewall. facepalm Well, I’ve had too much homework to play anyway. But what a simple solution…

I actually don’t really know anything about firewalls. GW2 seems to only work when I turn it off. Do I really need a firewall?
