Chances are, if you are reading this thread, it's because you're not able to play on-line due to recieving an Invalid CD-Key message or unauthorized CD key message.

Invalid CD Key
If you get an "invalid_cdkey" message back from a server, that REALLY means that the authorize server has received your CD-key, decoded it, and found it to be BAD. Re-entering the CD-key from your jewel case should fix this problem. It does not ever give this message with good CD-keys.
