Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Online Services Currently Offline

The data center hosting the online services for Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars was taken out by Hurricane Sandy a few hours ago and is currently offline. That unfortunately means you won't be able to sign into your online account, and multiplayer server authentication is unavailable too. An army of engineers and technicians is working to restore power and service, but it's understandably difficult due to the on-going conditions in the area. We'll keep an eye on things and will let you know when normal service resumes.

JESUS-SERVER is down, too. Server is not authenticated. I need my QUAKE WARS !!!!!
Posted on 30 October, 2012 - 11:49
It's possible that this is related to the big huge power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy in the US. Will try and find out more, but large swaths of the East Coast have been told to stay in their homes so it may be a while. :)

Maybe I'm thicker than a monkey's forehead but wouldn't this effect other games/servers too. As an ,for example,Wolfenstein servers seam to be unaffected East side of the States? And even the only populated Brink server (2 players) States side,is merrily chugging along. Just an observation. ;)

Seems to be back up, kinda. Had a "cancelled" error the first two times I tried before it got through. Only 8 other people online.

It depends on where they're located - bear in mind that ETQW uses DemonWare, which the other games don't.

Yeah, it's been down all morning for me as well - various error messages. [PMS] Techgrrl

Just had confirmation that the datacenter hosting ETQW's multiplayer services was taken out by the hurricane. They have techs on site trying to restore service but so far there's no ETA.

Hello, i'm also having problems to login since yesterday. When i try to login it shows the error "cancelled", but with other username that is older and not used for a long time the login process works fine and i can see the old account's stats. And i have been checking who is playing in each server and there aren't many people playing also. Is this still going on? Why is my older account able to login (haven't tried joining a server) while my current account can't login? Thanks.
Posted on 31 October, 2012 - 21:28
Got the same problem as you Aerie, but i cannot log in at all :( hopefully it'll be fixed soon...!!

Small update: ETQW's multiplayer services are expected to be restored at some point next week.
Posted on 2 November, 2012 - 09:34
It´s actually heart-warming to see people still playing this. I may just reinstall the whole thing once I'm done with my exams.
Posted on 2 November, 2012 - 09:44

In case this wasn't clear from earlier posts in this thread, it is [U]still possible[/U] to get online and I have no reason to believe that it will work for some and not for others. It seems to be a hit and miss affair for everyone atm. You may have to give it several tries and several is sometimes a lot more then just a couple. It took me about half an hour to get on-line this morning and when I finally managed to do that, I was the only person in the world on a server :) . Btw, thanks for the update Badman! Dr. Funkenstein
Posted on 2 November, 2012 - 14:57
Sorry Dadman. I was just entertaining my fans. The "guilty" object that have a ETA on "T talk" is not SD, but the responsible for the tornado. IT'S NOT APROOVED. I DO NOT AGREE! So it can't happens. PRESENT YOUR SELF *NOW*, FOR PARENTAL CORRECTION!
Posted on 2 November, 2012 - 15:58
Nice to know servers will be repaired ! i haven't had my etqw fix all week! haven't been able to log onto server!

BUT.... BUT... BUT... I need my ETQW NOW.... Does anyone know if the Crypt Play Here Die Here server (or one of the TAW servers) is up? If so, anyone know the IP? If so, is it possible to just avoid the master server and connect directly by IP? If so, I'm there. I need a fix...

First we need to build the bridge ,Then deploy the mcp,Then hack the data subnet ,then blow the stroggoflier. Then press the on button!

Slowly! The problem is, MCP was already making it's way by the bridge, then suddenly huge hurricane came, and MCP has fallen off the bridge so it is totally stucked. Map need to be restarted, as soon as the enginieers and constructors will stop quarrelling whether or not electricity would be a better power supply than stroyent... :/ That's the main problem now - shall we help them to figure out?

As a heads-up, maintenance is being carried out today that may affect ETQW's online services (it won't if all goes as planned).
Posted on 9 November, 2012 - 12:28

It works for me
Posted on 12 March, 2013 - 20:48
I'm not sure what's causing it, but I guess there's a problem with the authentication server today. I can only see 17 active servers as I type this (it was only 2 this morning!) and if I use the history tab to join a server that doesn't show up in the active servers list, I get a message that it's the server isn't authenticated (I tried the Villa server for this.) Can someone have a look at this? Dr. Funkenstein
Posted on 21 March, 2013 - 13:01
demonware ftw! or just lag.
Posted on 21 March, 2013 - 16:17
here the same.. my server was spaming in the log with
Dedicated server sign in failed (1). Dedicated server sign in failed (1). Dedicated server sign in failed (1). Dedicated server sign in failed (1).
now i restarted and ....
Dedicated server signed in and is authenticated.
Posted on 21 March, 2013 - 17:21
villa server is authenticated and running again after a restart.
Posted on 21 March, 2013 - 19:34
Arround 3 am today i got disconnect from server not Villa, PV server and when i tried to join again asked me to login and i did but wasn't working... got a message of error or somenting so after a few tries and since was already so late i gave up. A few moments ago i tried to login and was already working but i didn't try to join any server.
Posted on 21 March, 2013 - 19:49
There was an unscheduled service interruption at DemonWare - things should be up and running again.
Posted on 22 March, 2013 - 15:54
Thanks for your reply, badman. Dr. Funkenstein
Posted on 22 March, 2013 - 20:08
Bumpity, bump. Looks like we have a similar problem today with the authentication server. Dr. Funkenstein
Posted on 28 March, 2013 - 10:44
It looks like that it is the beginning of the End. Demonware seems to be changing and breaking with old netcode, i guess.
