On 19th April 2017,. there will be a long loooooong maintenance (as always :D ) Well, thing that annoys me is, they will force all players to use email as Log In ID. And I love still using my Username instead of Email. Because ppl won't know my email, since i sometimes change it for security..

    Your display name on the forums will still be visible, your email is just used for logging in rather than the username. Minecraft did something similar in order to implement their name change system more effectively; your account still possesses the username, you just don't use it for login.

    Display name on the forum =/= Username. I still like logging in using Username. It's unique and shorter than u have to put your email address.

    I just use the form fill feature in Chrome. I type one letter and it pops up.

    since they removed the direct launcher, you don't really need to type the login every time you want to play, the nexon launcher save it so its really not much of a effort.

    but 12 hours maintenance? o_o

    Logging in is already a pain as it is with the forced using of the Nexon Launcher making us use our emails over just makes it even longer...

    The Nexon launcher keeps you logged in and the steam launcher wont let you log out even if you wanted to. :)

    My question is this, the notice doesn't mention game servers as inaccessible -- only game access. Does this mean if you're already logged in, you just pray you don't crash?

    Ah ha... ha ha no.. Access means everything. Log in servers mean "Oh Deity of Choice don't let me crash now" but that wasn't a stupid question by the way.

    I have two accounts one my EMS account and one my GMS one which I play both daily.. Hopefully one day we can just merge two accounts together in to one so I have all my stuff on one account. As well as being able to go back to region select like we could on game launcher, and maybe it will be like how europe was where we could go back to character select screen instead of log in every time we swapped character... maybe just maybe.

    Or maybe they could let us remember multiple accounts on the Nexon Launcher.

    Oh and I can't use Steam launcher anyway.
