How would you feel if the next time you went to log into your favorite MMO, the launcher went “Yeah, but no” and denied you access solely because of the operating system you were using?Star Trek Online, Champions Online, and Neverwinter players are finding themselves recently, as allegedly the PWE/Cryptic launcher has started blocking Windows Server machines. For its part, a Cryptic GM said that it the team is looking into the situation. “I’ve asked the core team to look into this,” AmbassadorKael wrote. “I’m not sure if it’s intended or not, but I’ll let you know when I know.”
Star Trek Online is also dealing with unforeseen issues regarding the new hair and skin textures outright breaking some of the outfits in the game. Cryptic is considering reverting this patch feature until the problem is fixed.
Meanwhile in Cryptic’s other games, events are springing out all over the place. Champions Online is running its Nightmare Invasion event through January 31st, while a new Call to Arms seasonal event is currently running in Neverwinter.
