Best friend lives in Japan (I'm in California), we can group but get stuck on the loading screen once we click to start a mission. The bar fills, and then... nothing. We've let it sit for 5 minutes and cant get in unless he closes the game (alt+F4), then I get in but... when he tries to reconnect he cant get in. We tried with him using a VPN and it loads in but completely lags out during combat so that's a no-go. His single player works great, and we can group and run around in the command deck (lobby area), but cant get into any missions. Thoughts on what might help here?
