I had the same issue earlier this morning, I am not quite sure why I got it as well. though I did manage to get in for a bit but it was a pain in the arse to do so.

I got in briefly, and it disconnencted, saying that the player name has been banned.

Well I am trying to log in for some time and I just can't, so I started reading... but I got bored, so I decided to punish those who the fault belongs to. I've come to the conclusion that all the Prisioners of the Mist are guilty, so I am going to Spam the Forums. [youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anwy2MPT5RE&feature=fvst[/youtube]

Could the Server be hacked and peoples CD keys being added to the ban list? Can you log in to other servers?

I can log onto other servers, however, not Prisoners of the Mist.

If you can log in to other servers, your CD key has not been stolen. Maybe we could check our bans and make sure people are not being randomly added by an outside source? Is that even possible?

I was told bans can only go in with server updates, and that they are added by the admins.  With the set up that's in place I think the only way to hack-ban would be if a DM account got hacked.  Those come into effect at the next log-in, but since people have gotten that message and then logged in after, that isn't the case.
  It's probably just server side lag interrupting the verification process.  I'm assuming the lack of response is being taken as a false positive by the system.

this is obviously something else going on, it affects everyone, but eventually lets you in. and we have 3 threads open about it, we should designate one to use going forward probably.

If you can log into other servers then it is not the main server. It is POTM, probably something is lagging really bad...

OR

Someone hacked in and banned yoous all like Lawful Joe said, that is unlikely, but who knows.

I did notice that the thread regarding how to direct connect stated that there was a new IP address, though that may have already been in use by others but it is one idea as to why there is this problem with the server.

PotM is lagging really bad when I got in. And no, nobody banned anyone as I doubt he hacked the server again just to unban me after 20secs.

Then it's a POTM problem, all we have to do is wait.

I have the problem off and on but I usually just get the message that says the player name is unauthorized... usually its when I try the direct connect method... if it fails after a few tries still I just close it out and clean my cache and try again... that usually fixes the problem

I'm going to chime in, too. It keeps claiming that my CD Key isn't authorized and my player name's confused.

The Dark Powers.. are moving against us!

Merged all topics into one. Hopefully Axel will be able to look into this soon.

this is more then likely linked to a faulty script change in the last update. seems like the scripts are all wacked bogging down the server. if its true that bans are scripted in then that would explain why people are seeing the banned messages. i saw all of the error messages, and i eventually got in from constantly trying to log in. but its super laggy and i actually crashed which never happens on my machine. so something is messed up for sure and its more then Just IP lag.

 :shock:
Yup one little scripting error and the whole shebang goes nuts!

Anyway... I guess for now I will lurk around on the forums and see if there is any improvement... if worse comes to worse... I suppose I *could* go do the dishes...
