I log in, hit play, the initial loading screen pops up for about 2 seconds and then it disappears with no error message or anything. I just updated my drivers yesterday so that I would not have any problems when I could finally play, but for some reason it's giving me trouble. If anyone could help that would be great!

Update: I have all the latest drivers, I have the latest version of DirectX, and I have downloaded all the windows updates including the optional ones, I exceed the minimum requirements for the game, and I have no idea what to do next.

The only file I have in the logs folder is for the Launcher and it says that it successfully launched.

update your driver for video lately?
Also try doing a disk defrag and restart and try again

I updated my video driver yesterday, it may not have installed correctly, thanks for the info. I played the beta and it ran very smoothly but I just got early access today, after I updated it.

if there still issues i suggest if you have Beta client, installed it by before thanksgiving, you have to uninstall it and re install it.

I uninstalled the launcher when I got the email saying that I could pre-load the game, followed the link through the email and re-downloaded it.

When I go to the latest driver this is what I find.

Title File Size Version Date Posted
Display Driver 92.9 MB 11.12 12/13/2011

Which is the one I found yesterday, so I am now re-installing it.
