i'm not sure if this is the same problem, but whenever I try to log on it just gives me a blank white window and I can't even try to log on. Also, after i close the launcher one time, it keeps saying launcher is already running and i can't open it up again until I restart my whole laptop.
For the launcher already running issue, have you tried closing it in your computers' processes? If you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, and open your Task Manager, and go to the Processes panel, look for your launcher and either right click and select End Process, or click the button in the bottom right corner. That should at least stop the launcher from running.
As for your other issues, seems like everyone is suffering from the server crashing, but as they didn't have a closed beta to test out the game, many of the issues people are having were not even made aware until now. All we can really do is hope for the best.
And as for those who are whining and crying about wanting to play: Take a chill pill. Everyone is having issues, maybe it's high time to go for a walk or a breath of fresher air. Aeria will try their best to fix the issues, but it may take time.
That's my two cents. Now I too shall wait with crossed fingers to log back in :>
