I have a Inspiron 530s and have the proper hardware to run the game but just have the on-board video card. The launcher comes up and I log in and click play then my screen goes black for a second and then turns right back to the desktop with no game running. A friend of mine has the exact same computer with the same stuff and his game starts up without any problems. I have re-installed the game about 5 times now and cannot figure out why the game will not run. Anyone have any suggestions?

Same issue here - the game worked fine for the beta, but the new version isn't loading the actual game, even though the launcher logs say the game was launched successfully.

Same problem for me. It launched the intro videos after installing then crashed. Now it just crashes

My screen's already at max, so no good there - tried it on minimum for kicks and same issue. Hit the play button, then black screen for a quarter of a second, then nothing.

Yes, all of my drivers are up to date. I did change my screen resolution to ALL the resolutions that my screen could do and the same thing still happened. I'm getting a little frustrated considering that if it can run fine on the exact same specs of another computer then why the crap won't it run on the other? Ughh...

Sounds like a different problem, smash... I don't know about OP's, but mine literally loads nothing, not even the intro video. The game never starts, the launcher just disappears quietly and says it launched the game.
