A week ago CryEngine V was launched and I have been intending to check it out but I couldn’t. Put simply, the login servers just didn’t work. Some people managed to get in eventually, but if you tried to login in while the servers were broken it damaged that login and it would never work. I just received the following email:
Due to last week’s server issues some users have yet to receive their confirmation email, and are still unable to login.
Our team solved the problem, but we need affected users to register again. If you haven’t received an activation email or your log in doesn’t work, we kindly ask you to register again. You can use the same registration email as before.
If you still have any issues after doing so, please contact us.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused, and thank you for your understanding.
Signing up for a new account finally got me in. That said , it seems my desired username is now taken as a result. Considering my last major experience with CryEngine was when they leaked all their developers information several years back, I will say I’m not exactly thrilled with their server side support…
If you’ve been waiting to try CryEngine, try it again. I personally managed to create an account this time at least.
EDIT: Nevermind… spoke to soon
Seriously CryEngine, this is beyond pathetic at this point.
EDIT2: The CryEngine Login Failed. Server not reachable error seems to be linked to authorizing your account. For some reason when I went back to the confirmation email and authorized a second time it started working.
