    Since I messed up the login last night and that prevented people from playing the game I wanted to address this topic.

    Why have a login?

    The login is not there for DRM, it is meant as a service, for multiplayer, stats tracking, friends lists, and a profile. It is also used to ‘unlock’ things, like the kickstarter rewards or alpha member rewards. It is like Xbox live, but for M.A.V.

    At no point should it prevent you from playing the game. Xbox live doesn’t prevent you from playing if you don’t have it (other than multiplayer).

    This is something I am still working on and you will notice some of the features I mentioned don’t even exist yet. I wanted to just take a formal stance on why there is a login, what it does, and what the intentions of it are.

    If you ever have a problem logging into the game or the website, that is a CRITICAL issue. Please, PM me or EMAIL me (MAV@Bombdogstudios.com) as I get those instantly. Had I received an email about the account issue last night, the down time would have been less than an hour, instead of the ~10 hours that it was. (I am not saying it’s your fault. It was completely my fault.) I just want you to know, it’s ok to email me. If i break your ability to play the game, I REALLY REALLY want you to email me. You don’t even have to be nice 🙂

    [Also, Legacy was the 3rd person to report the issue. Breaking both of his legacy’s 🙂 ]

    It’s good to see that you’re OK with us notifying you of something like this.

    You’ve gotta remember that most of us don’t like bugging people if they’re asleep. I am one of those people.

    Sure, I haven’t been able to log into the game since I purchased it, but I’ve given up until the next major update. Hopefully that will solve my troubles.

    Anyway. As soon as I know of something critical, I’ll let you know.

    I get all emails directly to my phone and it has a really loud ringer, because I WANT to know if something is wrong 🙂

    I haven’t seen any spambots here yet – I dread to think what’d happen when they do show up.
