Finally able to log into the game but I get the message:
Multiple retries yields the same result. Clicking no allows me to play the game with no local chat, as if I was in W-Space. This issue is not on my end, firewall turned off same result. Please CCP an official response to the issues would be great considering our lost time and money.
Luckily I found a High sec wormhole so I am just doing logistics and moving some assets around. I know EU and USA (I’m in US) servers have been handling the login/chat issues differently. I would do some DED’s if I knew that everyone in my space also didn’t have a local chat. But it is too dangerous/tedious for me to operate as if in W-Space when it is not clear if others have that same disadvantage.
Hopefully it is resolved soon…and if not at least having a tiny little dev post on the issue would be nice. Just to prevent me from going insane.
Many have fixed the login issues using VPN’s. While that is a good temporary fix, that is a non-solution. I pay to play from the US and should not have to route through servers in the EU for access. Most of my annoyance today is due to a lack of official response from developers. They should man up and make a post.
No I understand the reason and I appreciate your response. The other threads regarding the login issues from US due to ddos attacks have mentioned VPN’s. I honestly am happy I can at least log in to the game. Like I said, my main annoyance is that there is negative information from the dev’s.
I can confirm that this chat issue now happens to northern europe clients as well.
Login issue (connecting again usually fixes it) has been there for the whole time but this chat issue struck to me first time today.
