This computer has been banned from accessing the game. Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I created an account, verified it, and went to logon, only to receive the message: Logon failed: this computer has been banned from accessing the game. So, I created another account. I get the same message. I know this isn't the ip-block bug (unless it's more extensive...) because my friend can logon from my computer with his account. So the computer blocked message is flagged on the account... but why???

I imagine your IP is banned on any account that does not have a previous IP associated with it. Your friend's account has his own IP associated with it, so they log him on; however, your account(s) do(es) not and that's why it doesn't work for you.

You wouldn't happen to have had a previous account that... oh, you know... got banned or anything, would you?

No, that was my very first account. I had not even played the game before, only watched others play. And, before anyone else suggests that maybe I had done something to be banned or blocked, I am not the kind of person to create 'inappropriate' names, or use profanity where it is not welcome (such as in puzzle pirates), nor attempt to scam, nor commit any other 'offensive actions.' In any event, I hope this problem is fixed soon so that I may play (if it's the ip block thing, I've read they are working on it).

i have exactly the same problem. Whenever i try to log in it says "login failed: this computer has been banned from accessing the game". It is annoying me as i have done nothing to deserve this, I haven't even played the game yet, I've only heard about it from my friends.

You guys just need to email support. Random players aren't going to be able to help you so there's no point posting in forums.

I hope this doesn't become an on-going problem.

Well, that, too. :D


No, I mean the ban problem. A lot of people have been getting banned before they sign up. The only thing that I think is suspicious is that this problem popped up right after the string of recent banning done by the ringers. Forgive me for my skepticism, but this does seem rather dubious.

Yes, I have noticed that myself.

Do the Ringers do an IP ban? Maybe they are at the same college or something?

Dubious in the "my brother/sister did it" kind of way.

Good advice. I've locked this topic now (and another similar one); further topics on IP bans will be deleted - there's nothing we can do here folks...
