Randomly crashes to a infinite loading screen!

I played with the new patch for the first time today and I've been playing (including crashes/disconnects etc.) for roughly 6 hours and had this happen 3 times so far, 2 of the times I waited 30 minutes without anything happening, the bar is stuck at 15% or 1/6 of the way every time and the little "loading" symbol on the right is rotating as normal, the game itself doesn't hang (checked in processes) but the loading screen just sits there doing nothing.

I got disconnected at random before this patch too but then I was just thrown back to server select, now I have to close the game down and start it back up to continue, I'd rather be thrown back to server select than this BS.

Edit: 4 times... this time on the frickin tatooine balloon, thanks a frickin lot Bioware.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

Yup...same issue for me on Harbinger since one or two of the last patches. I can be just cruising along, or in the middle of typing in chat or fighting and it will drop to a loading screen with part of the bar filled and just sits there forever till I force close the game and restart it. <bleh> pretty annoying.

Happened to me often today as well. I'm on the Jedi Covenant server.
Gamers nowadays seem to approach gaming as if it is work, or some kind of Amazing Race style reality competition, rather than an exercise in fun and escapism. It's like absolute perfection is the goal rather than simple fun. Why so serious?

Jedi Covenant server as well. Has happened 5 times in the last 40 minutes. Switches to loading screen and stays there. Has happened a lot this past month but today is ridiculous. Never happened to me before the 1st of the year-ish.

It happened to me for a little while a few weeks ago, but yesterday and today it is doing it to the point that I can't even play the game. It's really irritating. Apparently it's been going on for many months because I found some topics on it from early-mid 2012. I pay to play this game, BioWare/EA, so PLEASE address this.

I am also having issues with randomly loosing connection to the game while my internet is perfectly fine. I get stuck on the loading screen. Forces me to end the game through task manager. Happens several times in a row till I just gave up.

This is happening to me as well. It started last night about 10 PM. It is still going on right now at 11AM. This is very disappointing. Crash to ininfite load, then lost connection to the server error code 1005. It's happening on multiple servers, including Harbinger. I play mostly on Shadowlands. It had happened on occasion over the last few weeks
but now it is constantly happening. I can't play the game anymore. I wish they would Hotfix this, but, it looks like I'll have to wait for next Tuesday's patch to be able to play again. And that is with my fingers crossed that Tuesday's patch will actually do anything to address this issue.
