i had the same problem:
i had already changed the update servers to US servers but still i was getting this loop.
Here is exactly what i did, maybe it helps you guys:
1. logged to EU servers
2. logged out
3. Close Diablo 3 Client completely
4. Open Diablo 3 now, and it patches, and now i can login to US
hope this helps
