I recently decided to come back to this game with a couple of friends when I heard about the cosmetics shop being launched, but since I started playing around a week ago me and my two friends have been completely unable to join any games, be it random or each others.
When we attempt to join a game it does the normal loading screen for around 10 seconds, then switches to a black loading screen with the spinning icon in the lower right corner. The game never moves beyond this point, I’ve left it for close to 30 minutes with no changes. The only thing is that you can hear game sounds from the lobby, such as attacks and voice lines, which means that you have connected to them, but not fully. My friends also tried to connect to each other to see if that caused issues and they managed to get in once, then never again since then. We are all playing from within the UK and none of us are using any VPNs or other things that might cause issues.
I have seen a couple of people on steam commenting on it, but none of them recieved a reply, I also tried searching for any solutions but none that I have found have worked. Am I stuck at this point in having to redownload a 55gb game or is there a possibility I can try first.
The game produces no crash reports for this issue as the game doesn’t technically crash, it just hangs on the edge of a loading screen forever.
