Connection failed" when launching the game

Ever since the servers went down I haven't been able to connect (even after the servers came back up). I made a petition about it a couple days ago but that was never answered. I can log into the launcher and hit "Play", and it launches the game normally. However, when the game is trying to connect to Tranquility, it says "Connection Failed" and brings up this message: "Could not connect to the specified address. Odds are that you have not established an internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong." After trying to hit "Connect" on the menu screen, it still comes up with the same message.Cry
