Frequently having an issue when trying to join server...sometime it will not connect, other times it aborts with a message that says "nick in use" what is this? I have all uipdates and nothing else running
Thanks

This probably happens when a connection is unable to be made properly with the server due to network problem (?). You may get the message in console saying "Unable to connect to server." But your nick is shown in the server for a few seconds till it automatically times out.

So trying to reconnect in a minute or so should get you in the game.
