I'm may not be interpreting this correctly... I'm thinking that means people are reaching the menu within it and then having connectivity issues. I can't get past the first screen that shows an inn door right now. (I just started playing today, what's the usual term for that door screen?)
It was working fine, then I closed it for a bit and then when I reopened it it patched and now this is happening.
Anyway, just wanted to report that some people can't get past that first door screen, in case the Launcher news refers to issues that happen once past that.
EDIT: Managed to get in after typing all that.
