Login failure

Postby Wamadoorn » Sun May 26, 2013 12:45 pm

Was just playing a few hours ago, logged off to have lunch and do some yard work, and now I get message that my account is banned when trying to log in. Tried going to support but that requires logging in, which fails with message that my account is suspended. Also, I didn't get any email regarding any account issue, so I also can't contact anyone about it! Since I didn't do anything to get banned/suspended (except group with goofy before I logged out) it is obviously some sort of mistake... so I further tried to create a new free account to get a message to tech support. The exact same errors happen when I log in on the new account, so that is some pretty proactive banning!

I also rebooted my PC, no change.

Anyone else having problems logging in or just lucky me?

That happened to me once a few months ago. Scared me! I think what I did to correct it was to run "everquest.exe" with the patchme option. Perhaps do a file check? It soon (a few hours) resolved itself if I recall correctly.

And, silly as it sounds, make sure your system clock is correct. And if you play on a Mac, there can be other issues...at least from what I can read on the SoE EQ boards.

There was a message on the SOE boards yesterday about some imminent bannings due to an exploit. Does anyone box you when you're not around?

Only to buff and/or loot something... very, very rarely and probably not for several months at least.

Regardless, must have been a mistake on their part because now a few hours later I can magically log in again. Pfft.

Whatever the cause Wama...I'm sure glad that all is once again well for you!

Grouping with me is usually penalty of death, not a meer banning.
