Day 6: Daybreak Login Issues Persist

Written by Feldon on . Posted in EQ2, Game Updates & Maintenance

Not sure what else to say about the nearly week-long Login problems at this point, except that maybe @DaybreakGames shouldn’t tweet the suggestion that login problems are likely the fault of the customer’s computer or internet connection. This tweet rubbed more than a few people the wrong way:

    Neither Launchpad Nor Executable working for me @ 9:25am PST. Both Launchpad and Executable eventually tells me invalid UID / PWD after failing on ‘..trying login server #1’. Hmmm, still strikes me as funny since I just used that UID/PWD pair to login before being presented with the “Login rejected: Invalid username or password. Please try again”. something has an unusual scent here…

    Login server is the least of the issues now… 90%+ of the instances are down…

    unable to connect during 90 minutes and then endly I could login. Don’t even know why.

    what is sure is that was neither coming from my computer nor from my box (I read the tweet also (made me laugh :mrgreen: )
    As I finally could connect we weren’t a lot on Thurgardin (thought a while I connected on Storms erroneously 😆

    All I know that for the last two months or so, when I fire up the launcher it kills my internet for about 30 seconds to minute. I didn’t worry about it much because it was brief, self resolved itself, and I was afraid that in trying to fix the issue, I might unintentionally exacerbate it.

    Now I wonder if perhaps there’s a corollary. Has anyone else had this problem?


    • Democyde


      “30 seconds to a minute”



    • Lateana


      I have the same issue.


  • Anaogi


    OK, am I the only one that hasn’t had problems logging in?


    • Genram


      I have not had any problems either.


  • Rotchi


    If you fire to many people you get a bad product…..

    SOE changed to Daybreak like bad changed to “do not touch, run far away”


  • zzzzzzzz's


    I can’t even log into the forums because it tells me I have an incorrect username or password which is BS. Same thing happens on my home PC and work PC. Happens when I try logging into the game too…after 5 or 6 tries using my exe file it sometimes lets me log in. I’m sick of it telling me I have a wrong username or password. This issue is not new but it has been at its worst over the past week.

    FFXIV is nice.
