yea the same as me and i too newer had such problems
i just readed some upper post and the developers or admins of game say that 90% its our pc that hawe problem that the game is not running????!!!!! then perhaps me is stupid or what but how the game can run before the patch without glitches( i was playing yesterday ,just before i get sleep,i turned my pc off),today i patched the game and it not running,perhaps some gnome over night uninstaled some drivers,or kicked my PC with leg??? or its just that the patch 2 february 400mb over is cousing the problem???
I was able to patch and get into the game at around 6am this morning, however I got stuck in infinite zone load screen at DS9. Had to ctrl+alt+del. Now i can not even get the patcher to run, it keeps crashing.
