I always wanted to play online on this game but whenever i try to connect, *it says cdkey authentication failed. Put in a valid cdkey* I uninstalled/installed a few times (if that helps) and it doesnt work. I did put in the correct key, cause its in the back and theres no way i could have gotten it wrong unless i missed a letter or something. Can sum one tell me whats wrong? (i bet the answer might be obvious on how to fix it XD)

This also has happened to me. From a forum on another game (seems many games use similar methods with cd keys) I got that it might be someone else is already using the cdkey. Also that game (hopefully eaw doesnt do this) can accept an invalid cd key when installing, but reject it online. Great idea to stop people from using illegally obtained software (assuming most of them only want online), but poor implementation.
