The problem continues afflicts both myself and my partner, we've tried a great many of the suggestions made in the previous 1003 error thread to no avail.

We tried connecting through my partner's phone but that yields the same error, so perhaps it is a pc bound problem (in our case, although it affects us both on different machines at the same time), so any more suggestions people have would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps also worth mentioning that sometimes we can get on to the game, the window of opportunity is usually very brief, not always long enough for us both to get online and I can't say whether it is caused by something, it always seems to random, I just try and log on the game quite a lot, usually failing.

The Problem really seems random! At first I could just wait for a bit and than try again and usually get into the game! Since yesterday it is a lot more difficult to log in .. I tried countless times already, but nothing ..
