Launcher refuses to patch

It sat at the maybe screen for about 5 minutes, then hung at ZERO percent for another 10 minutes.

Is there a reason my account has been banned?

    This doesn't mean your account has been banned.

    Your problem could be a packed patch server, your own inet or even your computer.

    Someone with more knowledge than I will probably come in soon.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Back in the day, like 3-4 years ago, the launcher would load in but say the game was unavailable if you were banned. Other times it get stuck patching because the priority was set to last so banned accounts were unable to get in even if they logged in properly. So it is possible.

    I've cleared my cache, disc cleanup, reset modem, restarted computer, DNS flush, all the obvious. The only thing left to do is delete and redownload the game....but that would literally take overnight and into tomorrow. 16 gigs takes a while. If that is my only option I might just leave forever again. But permanently this time. If PWE doesn't want me they can just ban or delete my account and get it over with. I honestly don't care what they think anymore.

    I still don't think you've been banned, but threatening to leave won't get you anything. In fact, it's a no-no here.

    No one cares anyway.

    I pointed out a valid concern. Sorry you've elevated yourself above me.

    Anyway it did finally load in....after like 25 minutes. Then it hung on the load screen stuck at 40%. I'm a lifer with priority cuing, so I have a right to complain whether or not you personally agree or care. I also asked for an answer, not your personal opinion.

    Flaming people who have taken an interest in trying to address your concerns is not a good way to go. If you're having technical issues, there is a technical support subforum to ask such questions. You may also file a ticket with customer support. /Thread
