Servers down for an hour or so tonight

You probably won't be able to log in right now. A technical issue is being fixed. Hopefully everything will be back up soon, in no more than an hour or two.

Re: Thanks

He's referring to a time during the spring of 2019 when, for a few weeks, a full reinstall was required every time an update was released. The problem was in the Launcher Application's auto-patch update system and was fixed.

Installing the Game

After installing the game to a Windows 10 machine, you might find that the game immediately closes after launching.

In this case try right-clicking on the icon, choose Properties, then choose Advanced, then check the box for "Run as Administrator".
