Yes, and yes. Thank you.

The crashes in lobby are caused by an update to unavailable games. We’ve identified the issue and will have a hotfix out as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience!

We’ll address crashes and server issues first, then move on to other topics once those critical issues are resolved. Keep the reports coming. Go team.

I get a error after clicking “ok” in the account creation screen: “An error occurred while processing the request.”

Thanks for the report. This issue is now fixed.
