I initially restarted my computer when I first got the error & now I’ve been stuck on ^that screen for 20 minutes.
I had this few times. Nothing helps - even uninstalling/reinstalling the game. In each case, after a few hours, this error disappeared without any actions from my side.
^Yeah, it let me back in about 10 mins ago.
A mod can delete this post If they need to.
Reset your modem or change your network connection and that will usually solve the issue.
I get that the OP eventually got past it. So just posting here for future folks who face the same issue.
Some people like me have still this problem few hours later at the moment…
I had the same issue yesterday.
I temporarily disabled my firewall just to get in the game and re-enabled it shortly after.
