GOA WAR Europe account site not working
What a surprise! GOA opened their account site to enter pre-order beta codes only hours before the open beta starts, and now the site isn't working. If you create a new account you get stuck at the third page, where you are supposed to type the letters shown in a captcha image, but no image is actually displayed. If you try to log in with an existing account, you get a "unable to process your request" error message.
Lets all say together: "I told you so!"
[EDIT: 7 pm, the European WAR servers have been up for 2 hours now. Only there are barely any players, population is shown as "low" on nearly all of them. That is because only the closed beta players are currently in the open beta. The European WAR account site from GOA is official "down for maintenance", aka "we haven't got a clue why it isn't working, but we're trying to fix it anyway".]
[EDIT2: 11 pm. Account site still not working. GOA posts an official update on Warhammeralliance saying "To the account pages. Well, that's another story. They've been down or not working very well for most of the day. Sorry, about that." The WAR account thread on Freddyshouse reaches 99 pages, I'm sure it'll be 100 by midnight. Who here is starting to get a bad feeling about launch day?]
