    The server has been crashing more frequently lately & it is unknown what's causing it. That's as far as I know.

    Nope I've been trying to logon for a while, servers might just be overloaded? Looks like I'm playing Saints Row 4 again tonight haha.

    Windows 7 // Google Chrome (Though I use the downloaded client usually // Problem started at approx 12pm (UTC-5) // PkMn Gravija

    4. Right when I downloaded it I guess, an hour ago.
    5. Don't have one.
    6. Whenever I try connecting to the server it says something like "Unable to connect to server, retry or close". It's very annoying. When I try and create a username or something, it says "The server is requesting an invalid login key. This probably means that either the server is set up incorrectly, or you are banned". I'm not exactly sure what they mean by "banned". I just downloaded the software, I haven't done ANYTHING. (Literally) Can anyone help?

    6. "Couldn't connect to server!" when trying to visit the official server. All other servers seem to work, and I can even log in with my username on them.

    when you click close on the initial (cannot connect to servers) error, then choose username, does it say "This server is requesting an invalid login key. This probably means that either the server is set up incorrectly, or you are banned."
