I'm not sure if my failure to connect to the patch server is a unique problem on my end or if the patch server is currently down. I know the northeast just got bombarded by yet another storm, so I'm thinking that it is the latter, but I haven't seen any information that points in this direction. If the patch server is indeed up and functioning as normal, where do I go from here on diagnosing what I must do to correct this?
As far as what I'm seeing in the launcher: status bar says "connecting to patch server", with a 33% progress bar loaded. Then it says "an update error occurred", "server connection timed out", and it retries to connect after counting down from 60secs.
