I'm really sorry about all this. I though the solution would come fast, but it has taken a lot longer than I anticipated.
As a temporary solution, I have now opened up all sub forums for everyone that has registered Divine Wind as well.
That means until this issue is solved, you will have access to mp, mod, aar, bug reports, FAQ and the tech support forum on just the DW registration.
You can also play multiplayer using direct IP or LAN, so the only thing missing right now is the metaserver. That part I can't solve.
For some odd reason Paradox games like Victoria 2 seem to not update so when you start Victoria 2, on the launcher click "Check For Update" or something like that. Once you did that it should tell you and if its says there are no update, there must be no new updates unless its a beta which then steam does not use so you have to download it from their website, this one.
EDIT: this is pissing me off, I'm trying to be patient but its hard because I want to try out some mods that came out but their all for V5.1 so my question is why not just release the patch to steam so everyone can get it. Their seems to be no issues with it or at least let us have the option via steam to download it so we can get it soon without having to wait for this COMS issue to be resolved which to me seems to be a HUGE issue.
So when is this thing going to be done, and what is all this subfourm stuff?
