    While I do agree, personally an e-mail would be too much. It can take a whole minute sometimes :O
    As long as they allow you to set "some" (for some definition of some...think that one through ) amount of computers as preferred computers (IPs, MACs, whatever) and you're not switching on a rapid basis it shouldn't be too cumbersome.

    Ah. I guess there's that. I really don't understand why anybody would attach it to their smartphone.

    Those things already have too much importance, and yet people still lose them.
    Yeah too often have i seen people lose phones and then have to deal with CS to get it removed from account

    Mif's quote suggests that if you log in from a computer that you don't normally log in from, you will get an e-mail going "Hey, someone's trying to log in on your account, is it you?"
    Should I take screencaps of seven e-mails I had through the last stress test that asked "Someone's trying to log into your account, is that you?"

    Because I actually had that.

    I am very sad I still haven't been able to link my gw II account with my gw I account after registration. Wish they completed it, its highly annoying to not see a single thing about it for weeks while I have been farming hom points I hoped to use @ release.

    Weird. Didn't get a single one of those. Maybe they were working out the kinks of the system.

    Hell, even after the stress test ended, I still saw a thing in my window asking to send a verification e-mail. And it was only just this morning that the link to verify my e-mail address actually worked.

    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Maybe. Might have something to do with being the first time to log-in from my new e-mail address, just as the system went live.

    It forced me to authenticate my log-in by going to the website. Logging into the website was supposed to send me an e-mail. Sometimes that e-mail took a few minutes to actually go, but I couldn't finish logging into the game until I clicked that link that was supposed to show up in my inbox.


    E-Mail authentication already "works", but seeing as you already use your e-mail as your login, I can see a lot of compromised accounts this way.

    Logging in by typing out the e-mail address is not the same thing as logging into your e-mail and clicking a link sent to the e-mail.

    Though I suppose you mean "if they have your e-mail address, they should now be able to hack that instead" or something. They really should allow us to choose a username instead of using our e-mail.

    Wait. There is an Asheron's Call 2 private server? Or is this a shortening for some other game. I am skeptical a private server for AC2 is actually up and running.

    Is it time locked if so?
    It was Asherons Call 2 where I discovered my aptitude as a healer and switched away from "clicking". Quite an important game for me.

    Pretty much this. If they have your GW2 e-mail address and can get one of your passwords, logging in like this sends an e-mail to your account. Oh noes, good thing I already have the address, how hard would it be to hack that, especially seeing as most.... individuals would even be as uninformed as to be using the same password across the board.

    As it's currently implemented, this method I'm seeing a lot of compromised accounts.

    Yeah, fair enough. I guess we need to start getting authenticators for e-mails, too.

    Ugh.. please tell me they're not going to make everyone authenticate their email address on first login at launch.. that has fail written all over it.

  12. #28512

    They did that yesterday. You didn't have to authenticate right away to log in though.

    I have pre order account and I will start playing 1 day early. When I get my game on the 28th and with it another cd key where should I enter it? Do i go to register.guildwars2.com and select that I already have guild wars account (I am not sure if this refers to having gw1 or gw2 account) or what?

    yep, that's where you go

    during it it will ask do you have a guild Wars account, simply enter the email/password there and it will be linked together
