I get a pop up asking me to "Activate Product" with 16 digit numbers.... I'm clueless on what to do next since i'm worried that Nexon might mess something up for me there lol. Is that a new feature? Or is it just a mistake? Who knows... All i know is that i didn't get any keys from Nexon and they want me to agree to their ToS with it, which is weird.

EDIT: I closed and reopened the Launcher. That window didn't appear. I guess Nexon made a mistake there, rofl. But still, that was REALLY weird.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Looks like a cross interference with one of their games that is in beta. Further proving their launcher is still bugged to hell. I'm worried that with bugs like that could mean holes in their security.

    That normally only comes up when you click on the option for it (Your name-> activate product) and you can always just hit that little X to kill it.

    Yeah, because a window that comes up asking for a beta key totally means security breaches.

    Just saying; what else is wrong with NA's beloved launcher that we don't know about? It's not a good idea to be a open beta guinea pig in these situations. Not a lot people take time to report stuff like this. Like those redundant surveys they keep asking us to do...that most of everyone closes out of like an invasive popup.

    I used to fill them out, but after week of still getting them I stopped caring and no longer do that

    Not going to go into why a beta key prompt popping up shows nothing about the general state of the launcher itself, but I will agree with you on the survey thing: that needs to die already because it's outlived its usefulness.
