I have seen several posts on the topic of log in errors. Is anyone officially addressing the root causes. I did not experience this until the August 2022 update. What is broken, and how is FAF going to fix it?

Nothing will happen because no developer can reproduce the login problems (also from the posts in the forum its usually not the same error). I'm not even sure if it is reproducible for the users posting it here. And for the majority of players it just works.

So unless someone can reproduce it and offers screensharing and installing developer tools nothing is about to happen.

Hi,
My issue (which usually gives a 'connection refused') is certainly reproducable - just not 100% of the time. Right now, the client is refusing to connect, but I bet if I try in 10 minutes, it'll work. Sometimes it fails right away, sometimes it's stuck for a minute or 2 logging in.

I ran a traceroute on api.faforever.com:

Seems somehow along the way, I do get blocked, and it's not my computer or network doing the blocking. Yet https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/api.faforever.com says the server is up, so it's my ip that gets blocked perhaps?

Just now, the client logged in, but then is stuck in a weird limbo way:

As I otherwise have no network issues, it does seem there's something in the faf client or server. I now have a hanging client, so there's that. After killing it - it logs in without issues. Traceroute still gives the same outcome.

It all seems magic to me šŸ˜‰

If there's anything I can run locally to help track down the issue, just let me know.
