I have found the problem that is causing people to hang on the loading screen with the "Server not Responding" message. Thanks to everyone who submitted dumps. This was a very difficult problem to reproduce internally since it involved load and timing so your submitted dumps were very helpful in tracking down the problem. We will get the fix out as soon as we can get it through build and QA (probably early next week).
On the topic of timeouts....can we get a way to get out of the "Sever timed out X.XX ms" screen that doesn't involve bringing up task manager to kill the program?
I am also havin connection issues. Which started yesterday wed 29th dec around 9pm UTC. Right at the wrong time too, just took done 6 of 9 from 'khitomer accord' about to move to the final space battle and the rubberbanding started.
