So much for early access for pre-purchasing GW2. I cannot even log into the game.
The forums are down, too, so you are redirected to their Twitter page. All you find there is that AN is aware of the logging problem and are looking into it.
The problem appears to have been noticed first in EU but I am USA and not alone with the inability to log in.
7:43 AM PDT the game patched and I am able to get to log-in screen.
