Every time i click a server, it says CD key invalid. WTF!? It is valid! I clicked and typed in the correct cd key, and validated it. And still its says invalid when joining a server when playing multiplayer?! Can anyone help?

JOW, first and for all: did you try reinstalling? If you have done it already and your game says it's valid at the verification at options (you know where I mean eh) but says "invalid cd-key" when joining a server....(long sentence) someone else probably stole your cd-key. This means that one or the other f*cking person didn't buy the game but downloaded it from the internet or just copied it and via a key-generator(=kinda generator that can generate "valid" cd-keys) uses your cd-key. Now, there is a sof2 server network that verifies people login on and off (=joining and disconnecting servers). When 2 computers are trying to log on with the same cd-key (or if one is already online and the other one tries to log in)a signal goes to the main sof2 server and then the user already online gets kicked off that server and he can't play anymore with that cd-key because it's banned...forever. As you see, you probably have become a victim of piracy. For every pirate is one victim that actually bought the game. You see, you can only play with cd-keys of games that were actually sold. You can try to track down the pirate and where he/she lives to beat the living sh*t out of him/her. Or you could try and find such key generator to screw someone else's game...Anyway, when reinstalling doesn't work you can always format your computer (be sure to know what you are actually doing then eh).:mad: :mad: :mad:

Or you could try updating PB. I have been kicked before because of that, but PB update fixed it.
