Come on CCP, it was working ok before downtime Evil this is not good enough I pay real money to play this game.

Now come on I can't log in to dust 514 either, I'm not happy at losing my daily bonus eitherAttention

You only realise you life has been a waste of time, when you wake up dead.

so maybe instead of wasting manpower on vanity projects like Valkyrie and Legion / Crap514 , you might wanna make sure that the game that actually pays your bills is running properly...

I logged in just fine through the .exe

Suggestions for people, find the relevant bin file on the steam application and you should beable to launch and login directly again through that in the same manner.

In short: Turn off steam
go to file folder
look for the same bin file
Run

It just reverts back to a log-in screen where I have to enter my username and password. You are telling me that you immediately were logged in as you ran that file?

Go to your eve installation, by default on Windows it should be something like
C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\BIN\exefile.exe


Does NOT work....

Yeah anyone telling you steam works, it does but for pilots with NON-STEAM associated accounts. If you're logging into your Steam-created/authenticated account, there is no way to login other than the launcher itself.

Stop saying steam accounts work. Eve works but only for non-steam account holders.

Edit: Hey with the new CREST logins, new idea might be to integrate the steam account holders to be allowed direct access, using their CREST logins, via the eve exefile bypass as a temp login during steam/launcher downtimes in the future.

Yeah, I couldn't get in through here either. It just takes me to the launcher.
Now, I'm not as computer savvy as some of you, so maybe I missed something.
