I just bought the game over the weekend and I was able to create a new account in-game, but any attempts to log in get me hit with an error message: "There was an error when connecting to the game server". I tried recovering my password, just in case, but attempts to do so just result in a "connection failure" error message.

Bloodbowl has permissions to pass through the firewall and all steam files are up to date. A buddy of mine (also bought for the first time over the weekend) is having the same problem. How might I remedy this?
