Anyone having severe connection issues today?
This same thing happened to me last week. A good minute or more after the "loading match" bar has filled before the game actually starts (at one point it kept "loading" for five minutes that I had to alt+del out of the game), lag spikes, connection issues (twice now I've gotten an "unknown error" after a match and then two "disconnected from server" errors within about ten seconds of one another while on the character menu). I've only had the game running for 45 minutes but I've gotten about 3 playable matches in that time, the longest being about 8 minutes.
EDIT: ONE minute after typing this and going back to the game I got a "sync error" with some gobbledygook about my player ID and a timestamp.
What's going on? Is this just on my end? Everything else (my cpu, my internet, etc.) is working fine. My ping is green in-game.
