If all else fails, send us an email with a description of the error and we'll do our best to help you solve the problem.
Guest Login

Guest logins are quick, perfect if you just want to have a look. You can play and spectate like any other player, but games do not count towards any rankings. Occasional and regular players are encouraged to register to get their own identity.

Advantages of playing as a guest:
  • Quick and easy, no registration required
  • Games will not count towards any rankings
  • You will be anonymous in the lobby
Registered Player Login

Log straight in if you have an account already. Fill out your details, press "Enter" and the lobby will start loading. This process may take a minute or two depending on the speed of your connection. Please be patient. For faster access in future, tick the "Set login cookie" box and bookmark this page once the lobby has come up. The browser will remember your password.

  • Games will count towards your opponents ranking, making it more fun for them

Your Java Version

This browser does not have a Java Plug-in.

This section contains a small applet which allows your to test if Java is installed properly on your machine. If Java is working, you should see a red oval displayed on the left, which shows your java version in the center. If there is none, get the Java Plug-in here.

If you see a popup window asking you to activate Java, the answer must be "Yes", and use the option "Always activate plugins for this site", if it is offered.
