    Getting: "Unable to authenticate: Connection to the account server timed out" too now every time I attempt to log-in. Yeah, it is, supposed to be, my last day needed to earn my T'Pau ship too. Typical Cryptic lol.

    So got the same message this morning, then after the emergency maintenance I got in fine, just tried to get back on now and the launcher updated and suddenly getting connection errors again. Fun times.

    They fixed it once, and it is happening again. I award the effort, but they always have issues like this often. I know they will fix it, it is just frustrating.

    Unable to Authenticate - Connection to the account server timed out

    I'm in the Los Angeles CA U.S.A. area.

    As well at 1:40 PM PST on Wed. 2/6/19 (This is still after your Emergency Maintenance - now listed as 'completed' and after downloading a Launcher update.)

    Did a ipconfig /flushdns command as well - same result.

    Seems like your Emergency Maintenance didn't fix the issue for everyone. :(

    Last day?
    I'm not sure what the panic is about. You have until Feb 21 to earn the ship.

    It seems our log in issues from this morning are still plaguing the game. We're sending an elite team of engineers down into the engine room to contain the radiation leak, we'll keep you updated.

    Yeah, it was fixed, now it's broken again.

    I was looking forward to a Counterpoint too. :(

    Thankfully I had gotten my last batch of vouchers before it fubar'd the first time.
    Now a LTS and loving it.
    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.
    I have come to the conclusion that I have a memory like Etch-A-Sketch. I shake my head and forget everything. :D

    Seems whatever maintenance happened hasn't fixed the stability of the account server. It's down again as far as I can tell.
    That Tardigrade Maintenance Squad needs to be fed more Klingons... or their hamsterwheels need oiling ;)
