I have the exact same issue as thehluk
The game has worked for me before but not currently. The last time it worked was just after last weeks update, it worked after the update then tried to open later the same day and was back to the black screen/loading icon and eventually says "Time out" "Confirm"
Any other fixes?
UPDATE: Just tried to re open the game and it's working .......
I've got the same issue. Game worked fine for a few days then got this black screen after the splash screen. I opened the game again the next day and it worked fine (no patches or updates that I'm aware of). Then again today its back to the black screen.
Would really appreciate a fix or work around for this. Loving the game so far and just want to be able to play when the game opens!
