Laser: This is more of a criticism of GOG as I am not quite sure if it is worth sending them a email.

I am a massive, massive GOG fan but I have sent a message asking for some support help when it came to Startopia, I added a picture of a problem and my DxDiag file. This was about a week a go (give or take).

So I was wondering, what is the average respond time for GOG when it comes to support?
The response time is usually 72 hours. I suggest you ping 'em again, since that's unusual.

Ah, so then it's not a server outage. :P

The "Technical issues with games" tickets are especially troublesome, therefore response times are typically extended, as Trevor mentioned. A week is extremely unusual, though.
I researched this case and your ticket was flagged as "for further review" because we didn't have a solid answer or you at first, and we couldn't give it a closer, more time-consuming, look very quickly because of a backlog of post-weekend tickets. Unfortunately we didn't manage to get back to your ticket before the weekend.

While I can't comment with any certainty whether or not the delay could have been avoided, however not letting you know about the imminent delay was inconsiderate, and for that I sincerely apologize.

Reviewing your forum posts gave us a clue, so you should expect a reply from one of my colleagues shortly.
