"Too many failed logins"
For approximately the last 6 to 7 months, I have been unable to login to minecraft using the new client as I receive the message "too many failed logins". I used to be able to use the old client but as of 1.8 that client is no longer usable. I am now stuck using the in-browser version of minecraft which is very slow.
I have looked around and cannot find any information on this problem.
Does anyone have the same problem? a solution? or any other ideas?
I have tried all the usual problems - minecraft has been redownloaded (as has the client) several times, I have changed my password several times, Java is the correct version (x64) for my system and is fully updated, and I have left the game for a long period of time without logging in. All of the above have done nothing, oh and my username and password are DEFINITELY correct.
