I have a HDD and I like to play with friends.
From my sense, the loading time (joining time) is too high compared to old paradox games; +1% progress each second.

Please do something improve the loading time.
Thanks.

It's just maddening that Pdox hasn't fixed their multiplayer / network issues for years and years and years (across titles).

Still the same slow loading, OOS issues :(

I'm not sure what loading issue you are talking about. I have the game on an SSD, and it loads all the way to the main menu very fast.

As for actually joining a server, there are 2 separate loading phases: the first one is actually joining the server, and the second one is loading the save. Oddly enough, the former takes more time in my experience than the latter. So, yeah, that can probably be optimized.
