Where is my additional membership? 


  • If your account didn't have an active membership when the login lockout issue started, your account will not be eligible for the 1 month membership goodwill credit
  • Member accounts were credited 1 month of membership while the issue was ongoing to avoid being rebilled
  • These accounts should have 1 month of membership added as part of the goodwill bundle once their account is restored
  • The goodwill membership is added separately from the in-game bundle which can take up to 72 hours to appear after the account is restored
  • If after 72 hours, the membership still hasn't been added, please submit a ticket

Something's wrong with my player-owned port 

  • We are aware that this is still an ongoing issue and at present, we aren't able to return any crew members that were lost
  • Our product teams require more information from our players on what's missing and what's wrong with their player-owned ports to understand how to fix this. Please submit a ticket if you have an issue with your port and please provide as much detail as you can so we can pass this on to our product team. Please also note that because this is an ongoing issue, response times may vary


Why can't I redeem my bond?

We're aware that some players affected by the lockout might have issues redeeming bonds. If you've been impacted, please get in touch so we can help.


I am entering the correct authenticator code, why isn't it working?

If you receive this error message when logging in "You may have used incorrect login information, please try again" it might mean that your authenticator has become unsynced, try these steps to get your authenticator code to work again


I was an impacted Premier Club Member. How do I claim my promised discount?

  • Simply pick up the new Premier Club package via our website and you should see your discount appear in the basket
  • If you're purchasing with bonds, then please purchase this year's Premier Club for the standard cost of 20 bonds. We'll place 5 bonds onto your account the following week. There's no need to reach out to get your replacement bonds as part of this process
  • Qualifying players are those who were Premier Club members during the Login Lockout and couldn't log in to their account for several weeks


I purchased Premier Club before the discount was available

  • If you are a qualifying player who has purchased Premier Club before the discount went on sale, we have now added 5 bonds to your account as it isn't possible for us to offer partial refunds
  • For eligible users who contacted our support team about a full price Premier Club refund before 22 November 2021, you will not get these 5 bonds if you've already been able to re-purchase Premier Club at the discounted rate
