Dude, there is no "confusion", what I wrote is correct. When I reset the modem, the IP changes, when I reset the computer the IP changes (and no it not power linked with the modem). In what other language I have to write it.

Tip: if you had stayed on topic.. and not brought in every nuance of things about the game you do not like (all of which are off topic).. you would not have heard a peep out of me.

As for the OTP issue your girl friend is having... most people are able to find ways to solve this on their end if they simply gleen the information and suggestions offered by other players and by Philip. Unless you have worked the problem for her, which is what a good boy friend should be doing IMO, your energy complaining is energy wrongly spent IMO.

In my experience, the ones that don't use cookies to verify identity use security certificates. These, I believe, require money to create (or have created) and then registered. How much I don't know, though.

Why is there no discussion of an option to opt out of two way authentication? Clearly, some value the extra security. Clearly, some are experiencing frustration with the barriers two way authentication presents in logging into the game. If I were offered the option of having password only login under the 'scary' condition that I would receive no support from customer service if my account was hacked and resulted in the loss of virtual items, I would gladly take it. Two way authentication is a resource burden for SWTOR -- having the option to not use it is a win for the service provider and a win for customer satisfaction.

You need to understand something... your modem actually has two IP address, both are from separate IP ranges. One is on the side that connects to your computer and the modem will assign a third IP address to your PC that matches this same range. These IP addresses are invisible to EA/BW.

The IP address that EA/BW can see is the internet side of the modem... the part that communicates out through the cable/DSL line. This one is assigned to your modem by your ISP in the same manor as how your computer is assigned an IP by the modem. You cannot see this IP from your computer unless you use a web browser to log into your modem and view the settings... assuming your ISP even gave you the password to be able to log into the modem in the first place.

My impression of Andryah:

Most other people don't have a problem, so you people who are complaining must just be stupid.
BioWare is awesome. BioWare can do no wrong.

Just goes to show how subjective you are and how petty you can be.

1) I have never called anyone stupid. So please.. stop with the false accusations.
2) I believe that people can/should/will do for MMO software what they do for any PC software..... work the problem.
3) working the problem =/= complaining in a forum and refusing to do anything on the players end to find a resolution that works for them.

This issue has been discussed at great length and many people have solved their problems through the discussion and the information obtained. There are multiple ways to mitigate the OTP issue..... complaining about it is not one of them.

His post and his right to express it the way he wanted is still valid. Just because you do not like the way he expressed himself does not make it invalid.

You also have no idea what time he and/or his GF have already spent in trying to troubleshoot the problem from their end, so saying that his "energy complaining is energy wrongly spent" is ill-placed.

I never said it was invalid. Just that it was dramatic. I never told him not to express his opinion... only what I observed from it and my suggestions accordingly.

And the fact is... he was extrtemely off-topic with 90% of what he wrote.... and all it did was create needless drama in the thead. As for complaining... yeah. in fact.. complaining about a problem does not solve a problem. Working the problem solves the problem. You are right.. I don't know what (if anything) he has done to work the problem.. becasue he has given zero indication that he has done anything to work the problem. What exactly is your point?

OIC... he can express his opinion, but I cannot express mine. How double standard of you.

I understand why you do it? It just sucks... I read the forums on my phone... Which I have to log I if I post.... I play 90% from my laptop... Which means I'm playing from different IP's... So I'm getting hit each time for the freaking email....
