Today when I patched, the patcher did hang at 9% for maybe 15secs tops? Then it did its thing and continued without issue. So it doesn't sound like it's an issue that's related to the servers, although I'm curious, are any of you who are experiencing this issue also experience disconnects like a lot of other folks?
Got that issue. Patching i had no troubles with, but got disconneted a few times even though connection was running smoothly. Deleted the files in prepatch folder and had no troubles after that for 35 mins, but was unable to play any further because my comp. stalled and i needed to hard-boot it. Freakin cr**. Will log back in soon again to see if the DC's are gone for good.
Oh and on main topic. Might be that patch servers have some issues atm. Seems so.
