For answers around the changes made on the 2nd with regards to Display Name, OTP and Self Service options, please check the following two threads:
Second announcement I recommend reading through as it has 'moar things' explained:

When was this, I just had to call them a few days ago when I decided to give the game another shot after giving up on the Sand Demon (Jedi Sentinel Class Boss). I combed through the My SWTOR pages and couldn't find anything for removing it without calling.

According to him, this change was more about adding additional functionality for other features like removing the Security Key without having to call support.

You should have asked why anyone would want to hack an account in this game. Are gold (credit) farmers or other seedy elements really that pervasive? Or is this one of the "benefits" of f2p, an influx of spammers and gold sellers?

The One Time Passwords took over thirty minutes to arrive yesterday, by which time it had expired, it died before it arrive, well done EA, nobody can hack my account in the afternoon/evening because nobody at all can get in.

PS. my email account settings are fine, it arrived in the in-box, my origin account is ok, the problem isn't at my end in any way, not saying it's at EA's end but it definately isn't at my end.

Made me lol

Anyways having more security is all fine and dandy. But forcing it as an inconvenience on others is crossing the line in my opinion. I say that I should be able to dictate the security of MY account, and not have others tell me that they know what is best for me whether it may be true or not.

More security is a good thing. But when the more security has a failing system and it's preventing people to log in then it isn't worth it.

Besides who was the clever one to even make login dependent of 3rd party service? If my email provider is slow I have to go over all the fuss to set up a new email and get it Bioware approved. If my email provider is slow today, or at this hour, I can't log in before they sort things out. It's not that these things happen too much, but imo it's pretty stupid to make login dependent on someone else's service.

Not to mention that SWTOR servers clearly can't handle all the one-time password requests and people are getting expired codes thus they can't even log in. Whole protection should just be run down until it is fixed. Players aren't some people you use for "testing stuff". Do your testing in labs and leave us out from it.

^ While I certainly agree with you, I just want to point out that "lab testing" is very limited. They couldn't possibly test every scenario or combination of things that are causing people problems even in a few years.

But, when problems are found on release, they need to track them down with utmost speed and efficiency to solve.
