lol bro, what part of "Website repeatedly down" didn't you get? Little difficult to check the tech forums when the website itself is down.
Well, bro, originally I was going to respond with a simple "website isn't down, it's your connection", but then I read your post (which is generally a good idea to do before responding) and saw that you wrote the following:
Anyone else having issues getting on the game? Keep getting error 2005... basically since the game can't connect to the website server it can't authenticate my login information... -_-
Which gave me the impression that YOUR GAME couldn't connect to the website, not your browser. Granted, if the game can't connect to the website, one might conclude that your browser can't either, however, the game operates in mysterious ways, such as me running it via port 80 (browser connection) and still getting mad latency because I didn't have the right port range opened.
As such, I assumed your issue was with the game client, not your connection in general. Forgive my assumption and I apologize for trying to help you out. Good luck figuring things out.
