As my internet connection dies several times a day for 3-4 minutes (yeah that sucks) I'd encountered a small performance/polish issue.

On RA startup (any mod i guess), the loading time increased due to the engine trying to login the user (forum account & badges). Pressing "retry login" with disabled internet connection freesed the renderer until the routine was done. I guess the login functionality could be assigned to its own thread to solve this.

It's a rather small performance/polish issue.

I noticed this startup delay as well without a forum account, so this is probably related to the "Battlefield News" message instead (or both).

The UPnP (anti-)feature can also cause multi-minute delays if you lose network at the wrong time. Do you have this disabled?

Just did some testing: If I disable the network connection on my PC there is no delay on startup. However, if I disconnect the WAN port on my router (emulating what would happen if the connection was lost at the provider side) there is a very noticeable startup delay.

Disabling UPnP does not help in this case.
