Hi, this has been a problem since I made the account but haven't felt the need to ask about it until I've seen other people with the same issue. I have a desktop that takes an average of 55 seconds to load the character list no matter if it's 1 or 10 characters. My laptop on the other hand loads within 5 seconds every time for the same account. The desktop is a core i3-2120 @ 3.3 GHz cpu and Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB gpu and sits at ~15% processing while CoH is running; it is also directly connected to the modem. The laptop is about the same specs and wirelessly connected.
EDIT: I wanted to add, nothing changed by turning off my AV or firewall on the desktop.
