there is in the connection to the account system you can log with the Spielaccounts currently or since Longer problems. Approx. 1/3 of the people who are testing the forum do not have the possibility to log in with their accounts and the problem must unfortunately be fixed by those who make the software available. Unfortunately, in this case, I can only wait until they get solved, I would have liked the forum 2 years ago. Smile
The above was posted in German - Google has done a reasonable job of translating it.

As you can see, the system is there, it's just not working correctly.

Great - remember it's not the live one yet as issues still need to be resolved. But we would like to hear from those that can and can't get into the new forum. Maybe, just maybe, it will help the tech people work out what is going wrong and why!

Would rather they sorted the annoying bugs and flaws in the actual Game 1st
new servers keep poping up on a regular basis
with the establised worlds full of bugs flaws and game lag

It's a totally different team dealing with the forum issue. Envision have staff for bugs and development, EA have other teams/companies that deal with the forums.

They're using an existing EA forum structure to run an EA forum with an EA forum team, linking to an EA account logon and they can't get it to work?

Seems like a bit of a fundamental failing to me...

How are the other "games" that use that forum system working??

All other games migrated to the new forum structure a while ago. New games start there.
The forums work fine for them.

The error is being worked on, it seems it's not a high priority for Vanilla (the software company who write the forum) and EA. They want us to move, but won't put in the effort to make it work, IMHO.

Its not so simple. The login of the forums uses the so-called persona. Most EA games just have one persona, the origin account and the login work just fine. The problem with CCTA is, that each world creates an own persona, so once you play on multiple worlds, you will have issues logging into the new forum. The official forum team is working on that but it's a unique situation which seemed to be really problematic. The forum itself is ready for a while, you can check it out here:
