Personally has been an issue on 8/2 and today, 8/4. Game worked ok yesterday. Same for others players.
Launcher works, opens client, goes to character select and after selecting a character just sits on a black screen with the resources loading icon in the lower left - not spinning.
Log Lite does not show an error that seems relevant to this issue.
I’m using Ubuntu 17.04 (OpenBox) with a GTX1060 card. Video drivers don’t seem to be the issue, as I have tried 3-4 of them.
I also tried it on another system - same results. Other Linux using Eve friends - same results.
