I experienced this for the first time tonight. Now not only can I not log into that character, I cannot log into any character on that server at all because the game tells me that character #1 is logged in.
Im having this exact same issue. I cant even create a new character because it says that one of my characters are still logged in. Im totally stuck and cant play at all on that server, which is my only server that I have characters on
Is there a work around for this?
Edit: Ive been stuck on the loading screen for an hour or so now. I keep coming back to check on it, but its not moving. Very unfun
