UT3 tells me that the password I enter for Essobie is incorrect and that I should go to www.gamespyid.com to fix the issue. I go there, have that website send a password reset link to my planetquake.com email account and that goes off without a hitch.
I reset and change my password, confirm that I'm actually logged into gamespyid.com as "Essobie" and then go off to UT3 to finally log in and play online.
Nope... still says my password is invalid.
So how do I fix this? I'd like to have my gaming nick the same in this game as every other game, and as far as I can tell I actually have staked claim to the username already... but for whatever reason, I'm unable to use it.
I'd like to have the game email whatever email it thinks is tied to the "Essobie" username with a password reset link (like every other system in the world works), but because they are relying on gamespyid.com, I have no idea how solid their username uniqueness is... or even if I'm the Essobie UT3 will accept in the first place!
Is this even the right place to ask about this stuff? I didn't see anywhere on www.gamespyid.com that you could actually ask for help... it all leads to a bunch of IGN.com owned tech support stuff that is not at all relevant to usernames for Unreal Tournament 3.
