Login Issue Nov.16th under investigation

Hi Catanians,

we will roll out a patch for our servers, starting 2:00PM [CET]. The Update addresses the issues some players had the last 24h (“displayed as offline”)
This server update may cause some irritation during its roll out. Your games might stop or you will lose connection to the servers.

Please excuse the inconveniences and thanks for understanding!


We’re still investigating the login issues that occurred sporadically over the last 24 hours, e.g. users showing as offline. This indicates that the game could not connect to the game servers. Both our development team and the team from our backend provider are working hard on fixing this as soon as possible. In the meantime we kindly ask for your patience.
