View Full Version : You have been disconnected because another client connected to the game using the same account

I have recently moved to a new apartment that offers wireless internet connection, and I haven't been able to join any games on HoN since then.
I use a USB wireless adapter, and every time I try to join a public game, an error message is returned that reads:
"You have been disconnected because another client connected to the game using the same account." even though I'm absolutely certain that I am not connected to any other machine.
There are also duplicate instances in two of every server on the public games list.

Please try reinstalling the game.

I'm still getting the same error message, doesn't work :( Any other advice?

I have a recommendation, How about disabling the double connect protection feature just specifically for my account? So I don't get that error message. I can assure you I'm not using different machines to log into the same account. You can perma-ban my account if otherwise, not unless duplicate names show up once in the game room which I'm still uncertain of, but let's give that a try anyway??? I've been waiting for more than a month, and the only way to get into HoN is through an internet cafe 10 miles away from here, so where is everyone?

It seems that every once in awhile I can connect if I just keep trying to join, or create a game repeatedly by closing and reopening the client for some reason that's just unknown to me, but I do notice that it says "disconnect_duplicate_connect" in the console, so why not just remove that restriction for my account, and you'll see that I really am not duplicately logged in to my account

We can't remove it for a single account, sorry.
The issue is usually caused because of network lag, and the best you can do is try and wait it out.
