If you’re an EverQuest II player, then you’ve likely been having a rough time logging in to the game over the last week. A forum thread recounts login problems that have been cropping up as early as this past Wednesday, which have been traced back to “service provider level networking issues” according to one post in the thread.
EQII’s ops and engineering teams have been working with the game’s CDN provider and have gotten close to a solution, but at the time of this writing, a fix being executed this Sunday is still being called “non-final with adjustments being made that may alleviate the issues for some players.” In other words, not everyone may see a correction with this fix push.
For the time being, the Heroes’ Fest 16-year anniversary event is being extended until Thursday, November 19th, and may be extended further. In addition, one player has found a possible workaround for launcher hanging issues that players may want to try, barring any other updates in the related issues thread.
