So I downloaded Age of Wushu so I could see what kind of game it was. I admit I didn’t really read too much about it. I saw it on a website and it looked promising from the ad so I figured why not. Well, I finally got all 8gigs of it downloaded and as it was installing…it crashed. Hmm. I retried the install and once again, crash. For the third time, I tried the install and it finally worked. Once the install was done, I went ahead and started the program…only for it to crash again. Things were not looking good for this game and I hadn’t even logged on yet. So i opened it again and it went to a server status screen. All were listed as full. I figured it being a new game that there might be a queue so I just picked one of the 4 servers and random and…it crashed.
I restarted the game and attempted to select another server. Another crash. Again, started the program and this time it selected the server without issue. It then went to what looked like a patch and logon screen. It appeared to be trying to patch so I let it do its thing…and it crashed. Again opened it and selected a server, let it sit so it could patch…crash. What the funk! One more time…finally, it patched. I clicked play and it takes me to the login screen. I use my regular login and password combo that I use for most of my games…and it doesn’t recognize it.
I go to the website to reset my password. At first, I actually tried to register again, but it says my email is already in use which tells me I wasn’t dreaming when I registered. I attempt to login to the site it self and…my login and password work just fine. I go back to the game to login and still, it will not work. I get the same screen as above. This pretty much tells me that something is seriously wrong with the game or at least with their logon servers. I am able to login to the website with issue, but the game will not accept the very same login and password. I read a little to see if I had to create a separate login and password for the game. You do not. So after about an hour of screwing with this damn game, I never did get past the login screen. I go to the game forums and find that there is currently no search function.
Thankfully, I only had to go to page two to find the login issues thread. Turns out a handful of people are dealing with the same issue I am. One user states that verifying your email address should fix the issue. What makes this a little annoying is that when you first register to play the game, you do not get a confirmation email automatically sent to you. You actually have to go into your account and go under profile to send yourself the verification.
So I go and send myself the verification. I click on the link in the mail and it takes me to the website and states that I successfully verified my email. Ok, should be all set now. I go back to the game and try to login. This time…Success!
