Slot closed.
« on: Tuesday, April 24, 2012, 12:27:31 PM »
Hello, My server just had everybody kicked for the authorization slot closed thing. It's obviously a thing that's brought with the release of 2.5 assist. I've seen some individuals being kicked for that once or twice, but this time it kicked everybody in the server. Is it a client side bug?

Perhaps the Assist server crashed momentarily? I wouldn't worry about it. Official Auth went down many times and servers always crashed. It will still happen with Assist :)

if someone restarts the auth server every player will get kicked from every server.

no there is something wrong with the program i see more and more people kicked with this reason myself included it worked fine but now it freezes alot and it wont shut down on pc either is says failed to communicate with authentification server...its not my connection..it takes forever to load up the servers also...and server pings show like 19000 :-\

No its not 3rd party hijack you see more and more with same problem....either its suspicious admin login.....or autorization server failed to respond people her kicked for...i have seen at least 15 people with this problem in fact right now i get message 2.5 assist server is down...trying to re  install the entire thing 25 assist freezes up...and i cannot locate DL servers....this continues im not wasting time on this version...no matter what i do this program freezes up even if it DL even if i play..it all happend suddenly so i dont think im wrong in assuming its the program itself...re install didnt help at all

Actually I think that if the program does not change then it does not have maintenance issues. Essentially the program should eternally function.

Not sure why you assume it is a program issue when the people experiencing this are in the vast minority. It's worked flawlessly for me. The reason for closed slot kicks is if someone gets a critical error or closes assist, instead of pb waiting to kick you, the auth server does it instead. It's easier that way. If everyone in the server got kicked at once, either the Auth server went down, or it was restarted. Not a big deal.

Players do get slot closed kick because communication between the server and the client drop off. It can be a matter of a critical error on the game client, but much more often it's just the connection on the player side dropping off. Btw i don't actually get many critical errors on this version of the game client.

P.s. authentication slot closed is a substitute of the elder "Md5 tool queries" kick, the reason which lies behind is the same.

if that only happen to you, the problem might be at your end.
my pc is rly old, and I dont get Critcal erros, and when assist freeze here, its due a prob in my pc.(sometimes when I connect my internet, open programs freeze, and is not possible to open others )

if theres any interruption between client/server communication = Slot closed
if you click in "protec your name blabla" while playing = Slot closed
if you close assist while playing = Slot closed

if you don't like assist = Slot closed  :P

As far as "authorization slot closed" case is concerned, this is normal and probably happens when you choose another server from browser without exiting the one you played on. This is not a real kick.

This message is a bit misleading and causes much concern (I was asked many times as and admin - "why this guy was kicked", and I had to explain that he just left the server).

I think it will be best to remove this message.
