Defying our predictions, Sony Online Entertainment began restoring gaming operations approximately 9 hours ago, with EverQuest 2 servers coming online about an hour after that announcement.
Before you can log back into EQ2, the forums, or any other SOE games, you must first reset your password. It may be necessary to clear your browser cache or attempt a couple of times (As I did on the forums) to login.
WARNING: DO NOT MESS UP ENTERING YOUR ORIGINAL STATION USERNAME AND PASSWORD OR YOU MAY BE LOCKED OUT FOR 24 HOURS!!!
EQ2 Patch Errors
Some players have reported getting the following error message when trying to patch EQ2 with the Station Launcher:
There was a problem decompressing the file C:\Program Files (x86)\Sony\EverQuest II\lp_temp\LegendsOfNorrath\LegendsOfNorrath.dll_delta_10509_126.gz.
Rothgar has suggested deleting every instance of the LegendsofNorrath.dll file on your computer.
If you have any questions or issues about getting back into EQ2, your best bet is to post in the Welcome Back EQ2 thread on the EQ2 Forums (once you login using your new password).
