BEFORE the update, the game would ALWAYS say something on game startup about not being able to contact the server, try again later, but if you clicked ok, it went away and the game started.
SINCE THE LATEST UPDATE, the same message comes up, I clear it by hitting ok, and it comes up again after about 30 seconds. When you clear it, the wheel in the bottom right corner spins, and it never goes past that screen. I have left it at that screen for up to an hour, and it never actually starts the game.
I have tried uninstalling / reinstalling the game, restarting the xbox, and clearing the xbox cache. None of these have had ANY affect. The game still will not start.
