I WAS getting it loads last night (UK) however today is been alright (between 1500-1900GMT).
Possibly the server(s) wasn't load balancing properly hence the issue.....or it could just be a bug with the game - I don't know but im sure they have fixed it since it has not happened to me today (tonight will be big test)
Iam also getting this (UK) at it appears to be a totally external US issue! All other US members of my fleet do not seem to have this problem. Can we get a Dev to look at this please ?? I am sure alot more people are simply putting it down to server load which is appears not to be.
