Hi, I have been affected as well, stuck at "trying to connect to Cryptic Patch Server" or something. Then after a day I got the loading screen - veeeeery slow loading and then stuck as well. I have read some of the posts here so after I was lucky and the loading screen appeared, I changed the Proxy to EU in launcher Options + selected "PATCH through PROXY" settings even as that might get the patching slow and now I'm running better, it is not fast, but one gets in the game.
BTW: some posts here were a little negative about Cryptic Support being able to resolve it soon.... well, Iw you ever played on line game Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances - there you would NOT HERE from SUPPORT the WHOLE YEAR!!!! They even don't admit there is a problem, nothing, in the contrary - they say that everything is fine and the fault is with players )) So here it is definitelly BETTER
