So, I've had the following situation ever since that time:
-I can't access nexon.net or any of its websites
-Tried on multiple computers
-I can open my game launcher, but things like ranking and stuff won't load, only "item gallery" loads
-Upon trying to hit play, client says can't connect and closes
-Filed numerous tickets, asking if my IP is banned, seems it's not
-Tried using proxies
-Tried using VPN
-Disabled firewalls, antiviruses, etc etc.
-Not using Microsoft Loopback Adapter
-Googled that pomegranate, numerous cases with the same problem, no solution
-Tried from my neighbor's home, can access nexon.net and MS there, same ISP
-Tried playing from friend's home, can access too, same ISP
-Even changed my router
Finally, the other day I found someone saying that many people have the same case, and it's not an IP ban. Rather, there was a crash at Nexon's HQ or something, and for some reason they blocked a ton of people's areas from the game. So random that my neighbor can play, and I can't.
So this is my current state. Of course, logging tickets does nothing.
Anyone heard of this? I don't even care that much, just wanted to check some of the new content, but as always Nexon's incompetence shines.
