Connection Failed

I am used to receiving a message that oo many players are online, when trying to log into an official server at capacity.

currently, however, i am attempting to login to US Central 1, and i am getting a very long hang on the connecting screen, which is followed by a message in the console that Connection Failed. it is not the same message as when the server is capped, and it is only occuring on US Central 1 for me.

help!
