I've put in a support ticket for the game, but I don't expect any reply for probably more than a week. I've tried port forwarding, driver updates, everything. Nothing works. It pisses me off because I rarely find a game that keeps me interested after 20 or 30 hours and this is definitely it, and now this happens. It's something to do with connecting to their servers since the entire issues happens at both the 98% loading of the game (which is when it connects) and also when I try to actually connect to Mattheson server, and also because it stops my entire internet connection while attempting to start (which I've never seen before). At the same time, it also causes my entire system to freeze every 1-2 seconds and has massive CPU spikes. The only reason that would normally happen is because of heat issues (which is not present) or malware, which I've scanned for and come up empty. All drivers are up to date, my system is only 8 months old, and the game has run perfectly for 60 hours so far. So I don't get it at all, and it's the worst time for it to happen, precisely when I have the time to play.
If my past experience with game support is any indication, I won't ever be able to fix it, and I'll probably have to fight for a refund on all the SC points I bought.
