Same, got black screen earlier, and now it's back to the failed to verify username. Not too worried about it though, browsing through videos. Tryin' to see if anyone has posted a vid about tnt cannons that beat my brothers. But so far none have come close.
Im getting this too!!!! I think they are relaeseing 1.3 right now!
/i think 1.3 isnt coming out now, but I think the profile update is coming out, and that's why we keep getting stuck on the login screen, if you don't know what the profile update is, this is from "upcoming features" on minecraft wiki.
Not a game update (will not modify the game itself and will be applied regardless of the version you're playing).
The possibility to change your username and the e-mail address that is associated with your account
Global Mojang accounts are already available and can be merged with Minecraft, Scrolls andCobalt accounts.
Once the synchronization has been made, logging into Mojang games is made by using the e-mail address instead of the username.
In-game usernames will be changeable, making them apparently no more unique ; only Mojang accounts have a unique "ID".
For over 24 hours, servers all over the place have been going down. Just now, 4 servers I play on, all went down. I've checked boards and tweets, and Mojang is not releasing alot of info. Any idea what is going on?
