We know that you're all just as eager as we are to kick off Season One in style. However, if you've ever spent a bit of time around a moth and a bug zapper, you also know that a little too much enthusiasm can be a dangerous thing. As such, to preserve server stability, we're going to be temporarily limiting the rate at which players will be able to log into the servers. We are committed to providing the highest possible quality of service to all of players, and so we are taking precautions in order to preserve the quality of the experience for those who are already logged in. We apologize for the inconvenience, but if you keep trying, well, as Benjamin Franklin once put it: "Energy and persistence conquer all things."
