It's not Glu Mobile fault!
IGN says they don't longer own GameSpy Technology, but read my post on theirs forum:
http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/games ... -467054729
This might be very interesting.
This is a screenshot of gamespyid.com from 10 of October 2012:

Today, when we're trying to visit gamespyid.com it redirects us to: http://my.ign.com/settings

SO STOP TALKING GAMESPY IS NO LONGER OWNED BY IGN, AND STOP SENDING US TO GLU MOBILE SUPPORT BECAUSE IT'S DEFINITELY YOUR FAULT!
WHEN GAMESPYID WORKED WE COULD PLAY ONLINE -.-
IGN has posted an information:
Please note, IGN and Gamespy no longer own Gamespy Technologies as of 2012 August 6. Check with Glu Mobile's support site for assistance on all Gamespy Technology matters from now on.

Furthermore, Arcade and Gamespy Comrade are no longer supported products. In the case of Gamespy Comrade , it belongs to Gamefly ([url=http://www.gamefly.com)./]www.gamefly.com).[/url]

www.glu.com/support
www.gamefly.com/support

You may always check the status (and any incident logs) for such outages and stuff using this URL:

http://status.poweredbygamespy.com

You may also Tweet the tech team directly @gamespystatus
If GameSpy is not owned by IGN, then why the hell did they redirect the login page?!


EDIT:
I sent an official mail to IGN support:
Hello. Please read this topic on the IGN forum:
http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/games ... 452700240/

This is a screenshot of gamespyid.com from 10 of October 2012:
http://i984.photobucket.com/albums/ae32 ... 8c3b96.png

Today, when we're trying to visit gamespyid.com it redirects us to: http://my.ign.com/settings

On 10 of October it started to redirect us from gamespyid.com to ign.com/settings
Before everything worked fine, we could play multiplayer games that use GameSpy ID
For almost 2 weeks we can't play the games we love (Empire Earth II, Empire Earth II Art of Supremacy, Empire Earth III, Swat 4, FlatOut 2).
Please just disable this redirecting, and everything will work like before.
It is not Glu Mobile fault, so please solve this problem...

Best regards

As GameSpy noted - Activision (our great owner) is focused on their new games :/

It's hard to contact Activision, the only one way is to do it via phone.
I even asked GameSpy if they have any Activision email:

The only way is to call:

Also Kay contacted them:

No, Activision owned Sierra Entertainment (EE2 publisher) in 2008. So now our "publusher" is Activision (I heard it was Rockstars Games UK, but GameSpy said it's Activision).
And Activision "doesn't support" old games, like Empire Earth 2, EE3, etc. So GameSpy used this fact and they de-listed EE2 and other games from their service. And since Activision doesn't care about old games, GameSpy doesn't need to support it back. All is about the money.
That's why we need someone from USA who call to Activision and tell them what GameSpy did, and ask them if they are going to do something with it.
It's illegal, because we can still buy games with "Multiplayer". That's why now they have to remove all EE2 CDs from the stores, and they have to change the covers. Else we should sue them, because they CAN'T sell something that is not true.

As you see the sentence "We are aware of ELITE Service issue and are currently investigating. Thank you for your patience" was written on 10th October ...

Thanks Matty, but I think "ELITE Sevice" has nothing to GameSpy, and our problem.
It's probably their own Online Gaming service, and due of Sandy they had no electricity on the servers xd
