I've seen that, but I thought it was a client or server issue, as the same routes worked at other times.

I ask because this past weekend i tried routing directions to a destination that was 180 miles away. Every time i tried it returned the error 'routing timed out'. Then i tried a destination that was only 80ish miles away and it worked.

I'm guessing it might have been more to do with the roads along my route not being properly set up yet (wrong direction, miss labeled roads, lack of proper connections....).

Anyone else had these issues?

This isn't due to a limit on route, but due to no known routes to the final destination. Somewhere between pt A & pt B, there are roads that have never been driven or edited to connect. Since Waze doesn't have this info, it cannot route it. However if the roads between both pts have been driven multiple times in many main/alternate routes, waze will find the optimum route based on known data.

Waze is best used for daily commutes and in area of high wazer populations. But is very bad for rarely/never used routes, until the complete map is updated and maintained to some high %.
