I've been having much longer load times since the release of Beyond Light. I have the game installed on my SSD (Samsung EVO 850), and pre-BL used to get load times of around 20-30 seconds. Now it can take upwards of 3 minutes to log in, and over 1 minute for any normal loading screen.
I mostly bring this up as I was having my previous load times of a few seconds yesterday out of the blue, but am now back to the noticeably longer load times again.
My PC specifications:
Nvidia GTX 1070
16GB 2133Mhz DDR4
