Connection issues

Here is a list of some of the possible causes and solution to issues during the connection process. Some of those messages appear normally when we connect : it is problematic only when it stops us from connecting for a long time.

Authentication failed

1. The username and password do not match
2. After logging out, there’s a delay before reconnecting is authorized
3. The account is not yet authorized to access the servers

Solution : verify the username and password combination – try to log in again – post a message on the forum

Failed to connect to server

1. The server is unavailable

Solution : wait until the server is available


1. The map where the character try to spawn is currently unavailable
2. The attempt to log in is made too quickly after the previous log out

Solution : select a character who is in a different map – wait for the server to be available – wait shortly before logging in again


1. There is a problem with the character status and it can not spawn

Solution : select or create another character – post a message on the forum
