Well today has been interesting. My loads have been a little sluggish lately, but I chalked that up to my family being here and effectively tripling the number of internet devices. Today my loads were kind of meh, but hey were alright. Then I loaded into my Khabarovsk and got DC'd (how do you do). I immediately hit Connect, but something went wrong. My account just wouldn't load. So I exited the game and shut down my computer. But after a while, I turned it back on and tried to play again. But the loading bar has made next to no progress despite several attempts to load the game and my internet now takes forever to open a new tab. Then I checked on my computer's spec in the setting o see if something had gone wrong. And it takes several seconds to confirm that I have a Processor. So is it possible for the game (which I have played for almost two years mark you) to have somehow damaged my computer?

Nope - no way for the PC to be damaged via a game.  Especially when it was occurring before today.

Could be the OS is hosed or the hard drive is failing, ram is failing or the PC is overheating.  Can be a ton of different things.

Sounds to me that your HD is slowing taking a dump. 

Or something is. CPU, ram, MB. hard to know. First thing I would do is take the PC apart and clean the crap out of it. 

 

The only way this game could damage your PC, is if it was causing crash issues directly related because of bad programming. But we'd all be having that issue.

Yeah but the windows desktop doesn't typically cause overheating.

It can if there is a crap load of dust and a lot of services/programs running in the back ground if the fan has slowed on the CPU (or stopped).  There are literally a 100 possible reasons why the PC is having issues - and that is conservative.

Cleaning is absolutely the best suggestion. 

 

Next, I would defrag your hd "IF" it's a mechanical drive and not a SSD. If you've never defraged, it's gonna take a long time to complete.

 

Those two things will make a huge difference.

Important to know if how hot your machine was running because it could help you narrow it down a lot. Generally without over heating the HD will fail before the RAM, CPU, GPU, or Motherboard. Especially if you have had it over 80%  or even 70% storage capacity I find. These days If I start hitting 25% I start thinking about a new one just for longevity, HD stability, and performance so I don't have too much data on anyone HD.
