I reinstalled the game (because a GameSage told me it would fix a problem, and like an idiot, I did it) and now a patch fail is keeping me from playing.
The patch is 144,853,795 long. When I try to patch it, the progress bar disappears at around the 80,000,000 mark, and the progress freezes at around 110,000,000 and will not start again.
My firewall is OFF. I do not know what else to do. I only ask for help because reinstalling the game was YOUR idea to fix my problem, and I did not need this headache.
