1 0

Downloaded for the first time ever today, starts up fine then gets stuck on "...Please wait..." for a good couple of minutes before telling me that it "..Failed to connect to backend service..."
Can someone help me out please i really want to get this sorted, i've got a brand new PC top spec and i've been super excited to play this game and now i cant get on because of some dumb connection issue.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated here
hugs and kisses

FIXED IT
Windows firewall was running even though my own antivirus software had it's own firewall running.
