Game freezes since anniversary gift giving started

When I start the client the music plays until the anniversary gift window opens on screen then goes silent, after logging into a character I have less than 5 minutes before the game freezes and I get the option to restore, close, or wait, it says it can’t restore the game, and nothing happens when I choose wait, so I have to close. Most of the problems I have had with this game go away after an update, but it’s been over a week and still nothing. Anyone else having this problem?
