What is the Arc Client?
Install Arc

A question over connection.

Is there something about the servers that is having a problem with people connecting? I have not had a session recently where the game doesn't rubber-band me around, or even drop me out to the log in screen... Is there something that I can do, or is it something to do with the internal systems?

    This probably belongs in the Support forum.

    From personal experience, lately I have had days where there are no rubber-banding or SNR issues whereas other days I have them a lot. Short answer is this can be due to any number of issues, most of which tend to be ISP related.
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    You're not alone. The servers have been very bad lately here.

    This morning early I was able to get online without a problem. Now I get a timeout connecting to game server.

    Same here. "Unable to authenticate: Connection to the account server timed out"

    Yup, cannot seem to launch the game at all. auncher sends the "Unable to authenticate: Connection to the account server timed out" message and game client cannot be launched manually either (used to work back in the day).
    So I'm out, and this was supposed to be the day I complete the anniversary grind...
    TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, Toveg, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class.
    Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Ty'Vris, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider.
    Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, Tevra, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans.

    Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

    Yeah, I'm having an issue, too. Wanted to log in and get the ship I wanted from the C-Store, only to get a "Unable to connect to account server (3)" on the Launcher :/

    EDIT: Managed to get the game to launch by running it using the launcher from the game folder. Dunno if it'll continue to be a solution, as I'm too afraid to close it and retry, in case it was a one off.
