    Guild wars 2 thinks I am from alabama?

    I had the email authentication thing when I logged in, and I freaked out because it said I was from alabama. I am not from alabama, I am from Minnesota lol. It was definetly me trying to log in. Then I noticed that google thinks I am from Alabama now to? O.o

    Does anyone know what this is all about?

    It's possibly your ISP. I know if I log in from the local Starbucks, it tells me I'm somewhere in Texas but I'm in the middle of central Florida.

    I wouldn't worry.
    At home I live in Aus.
    5 minutes from my house I apparently live in Japan.
    A friends house which is 30mins away I apparently live in Florida.
    The local gaming place, I apparently live in Great Britain.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    Some ISPs have this issue. In the UK, with Sky internet, nobody is located where they are according to Sky. I thinks I'm in Boston, about 400 miles from my actual location.

    You've now learned you've lived in Alabama all along and you only thought it was Minnesota.

    I wonder why this would just suddenly change like this. It used to detect my city all the time, i got a new modem and router recently, and now it says I am from alabama lol.
