I tried reinstalling java... reinstalling SK client... darn I still can't play the **** thing. Any suggestions? or solutions? Anyone? or should I just give up, since I already posted in SK's website about this problem and no one seems to care.
What seems to be the problem?
Note that you require a good connection, in both bandwidth and latency, to even log in. Too large a latency and the server will refuse to allow you access: your client needs to send and recieve quite a bit of data compared to other games when loading because your whole inventory is stored client-sided while you are logged in.
Although Spiral Knights does not use a lot of bandwidth, it does require a wide berth in order to function flawlessly.
There has been a patch or two recently as well, which could be giving you trouble even booting up the client. There is a lot of traffic due to the recent event. Should calm down in a few days.
