Hello everyone



We've had issues with passwords since the beginning. A lot of people accidentally give away their password, forget it or are getting 'hacked'.

Anyways, you could always make tickets for that. The problem was: many could not provide any valid proof, meaning we were unable to identify if that person was the valid owner.

With this, we have decided to enable an Email Recovery System. Meaning you can simply setup your email in our lobbies (using /email [your email]).
When you then forgot your password, you can simply type /email recover [your email].

Our system will then send you a mail with further instructions.
CentrixCore will also ask you, when you join our lobbies, to setup an email address, untill it found a valid email.

With this, we will instantly deny future password requests without any proof provided, starting from the first of January 2018.

We also cleared existing accounts who did not join anymore since June 2016, meaning that inactive account names will be free now.

I’m also happy to announce that we updated our quickjoin system, allowing members to select maps again.
We received quite alot questions to give map selection back to the members, well here it is.

Last but not least, the Staff Applications are finally open again! You can find them by clicking on the apply button in the right top of our site. Developer applications will be opened soon!

The maintenance as mentioned below should be finished within 4 hours after this post.

Kind regards,
Dieter aka didjee2

There are several possibilities.

But first of all, people cannot just 'hack' your account, the only way they can is by bruteforcing it. Which is nearly impossible as you get kicked after each and every wrong password.

If they 'hack' you, you most likely gave them the password in one way or another.

However, I can make it that if you wanna change your email, you gotta enter the old email first?
