hi guys

yesterday I bought TWC, and as soon as I installed it, I tried to play online. First, it downloaded the 1.01 patch, closed the game and finished updating.
Then, when I tried again, after I type in my username and password, it says "error [100] invalid CD key"

WTF! I bought an original copy! And I'm sure i typed the CD key correctly during install (if I had mistyped it wouldn't install, right?)

Is there anything I can do? Is there an e-mail where I can complain to ES?
Thanks in advance

Brazil, seems like none of Brazil's CD Keys do work.

Walker asked his Brazilian friends and none of theirs did work, so he didn't buy TWC yet.

That might be a huge disaster for MicroSoft

If you speak english as well as it seems you do, perhaps you could use the interwebs to get your hands on an American copy? Have them smuggle it in xD

oh my, having a copy of AoE 3 in english is my dream! I don't know if i'm the only one who thinks this way, but translator of the Brazilian version must have done it while having stomachaches or sth...
where can I buy an american version, Asatruar?

I just looked at the forums at www.agecommunity.comand Thunder replied there that ES will fix the servers soon.

Almost anywhere I think. Just make sure they ship to Brazil.

That's sad, but everyone seem to think that way...

I hope when I get it this is fixed already. I mean, Cd Keys not working in a whole country... never heard about such thing before.

As previously mentioned it does sound like the CD keys of the games meant for release in Brazil haven't been activated or something.

Hi,

Common guys, somebody stole them and sold them, DINGDINGDING. If a whole country is without a legal CD-key, then something else must be wrong ! And they keep taking down the standards of Life, grr, I prey to God He will soon unleash Me, so I can Destroy all that lack good intentions !! I'm a bit paranoid, because I cannot see in ppl's hearts, as God can !! Call 007....ouch..that's Me...!!!

^ What are you smoking?

Kinda odd that Brazil's cd keys wont work, is it the english version or portuguese version?

I don't think the problem is with "Brazil's version" as companys don't release versions based on country but on language. So it would be the Portuguese version.

Well, then you would ask yourself if any portuguese people are having the same problem (which i belive they dont), so it has to be something with Brazil.

HA! you say that because you haven't seen "Curralejo" and "Choupana dos Nobres" from TWC! geez, I think they used Google auto-translator

You can't buy copies in English in Brazilian stores...

I'm not 100% sure, but I think in Portugal the game is in English. I have the "should be Brazilian" Portuguese version
