Temporary Server Outage

The game servers seem to be down today. This appears to be part of a widespread problem across the southern US. Our IT company is working to restore services.

So the problem is on our end, not yours. We'll be back up as soon as we can.

Thanks for your patience!

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".
