I hadn't played in a long time because it was taking more than 5 minutes to launch the game. So I haven't played the beta for chapter 4, but I would like to start playing as soon as the servers stabilize. Having to wait around 5 minutes over and over while I re-tweak things like graphic settings is a bit prohibitive.

Last night I finally decided to do what I should've done when I started having the problem: I filed a support ticket. All their faqs & such point toward the problem being antivirus software blocking the watchdog processes and things timing out, but now it looks like a networking problem. I see they use UPnP, which my AT&T router doesn't support. Now to find out what the workaround for that is.

Hopefully I'll be back into the black soon.
