It seems that some of the cd-keys for the steam version of crysis wars haven't been authenticated by EA's servers yet (if ever). I had this same problem. A possible solution is described here:  http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,11215.msg175487.html#msg175487

while googling the problem I came across some old steam threads describing the same problem during their july sale this past summer.

:(

Well I bought Crysis wars through steam and the CD key they gave me was botched.

However, I emailed them and they gave me a new CD key that works!

Sadly, it still doesn't work for MWLL. My theory is steam keeps inputting my old CD key automatically... Anyone know how I would be able to override it with the new working CDkey?

I recently purchased a different game through Steam, and this may be completely unrelated but this is what I had to do to get it working in a specific circumstance:

It was refusing to let me join a certain friend-hosted server saying I did not have permission on Steam to do so or something, but after launching the game, using Task Manager to end the Steam.exe process allows me to join the server.

This seems to be a MWLL-related problem.

I am able to connect to regular Crysis Wars games fine. MWLL games however give the "Server Authentication Failed (3)" error message and I am unable to connect to any of them. Judging by the multiplayer chat in-game a TON of people are having this issue. Most of us seem to have recently purchased Crysis Warhead from Steam (specifically to play MWLL).

As an aside, MWLL on regular Crysis appears to work fine.

I've made about 20 gamespy accounts total so far because it appears everytime I make one it changes my password on me randomly so I can never relogin to it again. In any case it didnt work.

Hi guys

Same Problem here I was unable to play because of the error.

I bought the game on steam very cheap Crysis Warhead + wars, just for this mod. Contacted EA Support but they nearly laugh at my problem no solution is going to come from them.

I also have problems playing normal mp game of crysis wars it says cd check fail all the time I try to join a server.

I could only play 1 time and the mods looks amazing good work.

Thx a lot for the help
