How to Fix “Client Authentication Failure” in World War 3

Is the World War 3 game having a “Client Authentication Failure” error?

Here’s the second part of the error message, “User token has expired, you are not able to finish the authentication process”.

Followed by, “Please restart the game”.

WW3 turned into a free-to-play game in September 2022.

As a result, it attracted a ton of new players which contributed to server issues.

The game is available on the official website and on Steam.

In this guide, you’ll learn why you’re getting the “Client Authentication Failure” error in World War 3 and how to fix it.

Why am I getting the “Client Authentication Failure” error in World War 3?

Client Authentication Failure

You’re getting the “Client Authentication Failure” error in World War 3 because there are too many concurrent players in the game.

If the game has too many players, its servers will be overloaded and they cannot handle the traffic.

Many users are reporting the error on social media and forums.

“@ww3thegame Can y’all please help me to fix the client authentication failure error? I want to play so bad but it happens every time I try to log in”.

“Eventually got on but this happened and it dropped me out”.

“I can’t even play. It never puts me into a lobby and the game keeps crashing. I have to wait another 20 minutes for the queue and it keeps getting authentication errors”.

How to fix “Client Authentication Failure” in World War 3

To fix “Client Authentication Failure”, you need to restart the game and try connecting to it again.

If you’re still getting the error message, you need to wait for the servers to be less crowded before playing it.

If the game is under maintenance, you need to wait for the in-game maintenance to complete.

You can check if the game is under maintenance by following @ww3thegame on Twitter.

The game’s official blog stated that you might experience certain gameplay and technical issues.

This is due to the overwhelming number of players due to the free-to-play release of the game.

The increase in the player count has overloaded the game’s servers.
