AVG thinks EO Client and Sordie's client are malware.

Yes it does. Specifically because of how Sea injects itself into EO. I mean, if you where going to write a virus that hacks a game client, the way Sea does it is very efficient =P
Because of this Sea is open source so other people can verify exactly what its doing. The code that triggers AVG is here: http://sordie.co.uk/viewcode?sea/Sea.Launcher

AVG keeps putting the client in quarantine, so I can't get on the game. Any suggestions on what to do? Or am I just locked out?

I don't know if it was something you or someone else with EO, or if the False Flag report I made to AVG got someones attention. But EO is working for me again for the time being.
