Oh and another company is claiming some regions are having internet problems and is affecting their games, since I can't log on there either I am guessing it's the same problem an hopefully will fix itself eventually, despite my tracert looking good.
Yesterday (Sat Mar 1) I suddenly ran into similar issues with launching STO in terms of connecting onto the game server.
After I startup the launcher, it just shows:
There was an error loading the login page. Please restart the launcher and try again.
Error -118 when loading url /launcher_login
My internet connection is fine, and my tracert seems to show slightly higher ms values near the game server's end of the connection.
I've submitted a ticket but I don't know how long it will take for them to get back to me. The thing is though, I was able to get online last Thursday Feb 27 without any issue, and since then NOTHING has changed on my end.
I don't know what they did with their networks, but something must have changed and now I can't even launch STO.
