Bad news for GOG users

TL;DR: If you bought a Forged Alliance copy on GOG you can not play on FAF as of now. We are trying to work this out with GOG.

Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is now available on GOG! Usually this should be a reason for celebration. Unfortunately it’s not. As you may have noticed our Steam Link Mandatory hint was not changed on the registration page. And that’s not because we are lazy or missed it, but because it remains still valid.

GOG contacted us roughly two months ago and discussed option to support GOG on FAF. We told them about the grey area legal situation around FAF and the reason for the Steam Link requirement. Our proposal was to add a feature so that we add GOG Link in addition to Steam Link. However, GOG wanted to go further and remove our requirements for any account linking altogether. Therefore they contacted Square Enix but got no sufficient response so far.

As GOG has no online service themselves, GOG users currently have no option to play online. We are sorry about the inconvenience, but currently it is not in our hands to change this situation.

Problems with registration and password reset ?

Hello everybody,

due to some internal changes to improve account security all pending password reset emails and registration emails of the last 24 hours might be invalid or point to a “404 Not found” website.

If you encounter such problems, please just register again / reset your password again. The process works again for new emails.

Server maintenance next tuesday (5. May)

Hello everybody,

the next server maintenance will happen next Tuesday, the 5th of May starting 16:00 CEST. We will upgrade our operating system to the latest version, so there will be a complete downtime. The maintenance should not take longer than 2 hours.

The maintenance will be performed by our new server admin p4block, who recently joined admin forces (even though he already heavily assisted on the server move in January).

FAF alltime record: 2000+ users online

Good news! Three days in a row last week we had more than 2.000 users online at peak time!

Remember 5 months ago when the server died almost every weekend when reaching around 1500 players logged in? By now even with 2000 users online, the server still has plenty of resources to hit the 3.000 players mark.

So stay home, stay safe and play some FAF.

[Postponed] Server maintenance 06.03. between 07.00-10.00 UTC

Hi there,

the next server maintenance is scheduled for tommorow morning somewhere between 7am – 10am UTC. All services will be down for ~30 minutes as we will restart the whole server.

Planned changes:

  • Potentially fix forum issues due to db restart
  • Release of lobby server v1.3.5 (contains all the fixes starting from v1.3 as described on Github)
    We spent a lot of time on creating test tools in order to prevent the ghost game issue to happen. So we hope got it right this time.

Update: Due to personal time constraint I did not make it. We’ll do it another day.
