just tried to log into my ascended account via the link on my main

and got a warning message about connection not being private, and attackers might be trying to steal information such as passwords, messages or credit card
net:ERR_CERT_Common_NAME_INVALID

this was on chrome, win 10 ;/

On it.

Apologies for the inconvenience. D3ath is spot-on, this is a birth pain of security improvement.

Still getting this issue - have restarted my browser, tried multiple browsers, cleared cache's etc.

Not sure why it is happening, can log into ascended on my phone and at a relatives computer - seems to just happen on mine.

Will try a restart of my machine - in a few hours (have to finish writing my Masters dissertation first!)

I see. Have you bookmarked "ascended.stargatewars.com" as the address for the game, by any chance? That would trigger the error in any browser. Apologies for the inconvenience, please update your bookmark to "http://ascended.gatewars.com" and you should be in the clear.

Good luck with the last leg! Congrats, quite the achievement.
