No, that’s obviously not normal. In which country are you located ?
Also, try to find the latest log file ( C:\Users\XXX\Documents\I-Novae Studios\Infinity Battlescape\Logs ) and send it to me by private message, and I’ll have investigate to see if there’s something unusual going on, thank you.
Finally, I’d recommend to have a look at your anti-virus or proxy settings ( assuming you have one ), maybe it refuses the connection. Could also be a router issue if you have one, the game needs outgoing port UDP 7778 to be opened.
Right after you get the 0.4.1.0 BETA " click to continue" screen is when it attempts to log in to the server. It seems like it fails to connect to the server, however the server has been up 24h/24, therefore it definitely sounds like something on your end is preventing you from establishing a connection.
