I've recently returned after a rather long absence and I thought to refresh myself I would start a new toon (went with a slightly modified version of a randomized name, the character's name is Siddharn) and start relearning combat skills from the bottom up. I downloaded and restarted around last Wed. And then of course the lengthy maintenance downtime hit immediately after.
When the servers came back up yesterday, Sunday, I played pretty much all day long. No problem. Except for one oddity. It showed that I had a "friend" log in, but I'd never heard of this person, nor had I yet added anyone on this toon. A bit strange.
I logged in for just a little this morning, and then it disconnected me. I have since been trying, now and then, to get on. It goes to the character page, fine. When I choose a character (I have 4 on Crickhollow) it brings up the loading page and gets "stuck". It never progresses on into the world.
I tried on Imladris and was able to get into one of my son's old toons. So is this a specific problem to Crickhollow, a remnant of this past weekend's problems, or something else entirely?
