The update went live yesterday on the server-side and the freezing issue is now solved.
However the multiplayer in general, although very much playable, is not yet where we would like it to be.
We are now working on an update that would address that. It is still too early to give an ETA, unfortunately, but we are doing everything we can to have it ready and tested as soon as possible.
People are thankful for the efforts you went to with Disney to revive this game, but it's disappointing that more testing wasn't done before announcing and officially updating the game (if possible, if not then sorry). This has entirely soured the experience and may even put people off buying it.
I bought this game on GOG a day after the announcement and haven't been able to actually play online since...
Hopefully you guys sort it out. Rebellions are built on hope. ;)
Another question: is it possible for you guys to actually patch current gameplay/technical issues with the game (outside of network ones)? There's community patches, etc that could be useful to be officially bundled in with the game.
