It means that someone else is online with the same key code that you entered. My guess is that you either lent out your key code to someone else, or you're not using a legal copy of the game, in which case, all I can really tell you is go buy a legal copy.

Not necessarily, for example.. If you lag out from one server & then connect to another, the server you lagged out on thinks you're still connected and will kick you from the new server with this message.

A quick search on the nickname you're using here tells me that the key you're currently using is leaked, used by more than 1 person. The key is being used in the UK, Germany & by yourself in Norway. At the moment the key/PB GUID isn't banned, but the person the UK that's using/used it already has 3 banned GUID's (PB GUID is tied to the CD Key) so the chance of it being banned soon are high. Solution..

A - Continue playing with this key and put up with being kicked.

B - Buy a new game from a trusted seller, example.. game.co.uk

Choice is yours.

My game also has the keycode error message though I have never given the key code to any one else and I know this game is legal.

this is happening to me too I bought the game less than a week ago, and haven't loaned out my key at all I think its the thing with the server lagging out and thinking your still connected is there anything that will fix it? like a timeout or something
