Hi there,


I have been discussing this problem in game - but the responses are slow. With the release of 1.90 I could no longer log into the game.


I use GMail alises to track the various castles that I have. For example:


[email protected]

firstname.lastname+cast[email protected]

etc.

With the release of 1.90 I now get the error "invalid email address" and cannot login. I was told by in game support to change my email address. I think that's unreasonable given this has worked for > 2 years. Additionally support acknowledge this problem (so you could use a hyphen again in your email address) and hence why 1.90.1 was released .

Please can you fix this urgently (ie. restore to original pre 1.90 functionality). I can't login. I have spent money on these castles. Wikipedia has a good article in relation to valid email address formats. Punctuation is perfectly acceptable.

Thanks in advance.
