How about logging into the game/website from somewhere other than your home desk. I also have the security key for my blizzard account (no I don't play WOW silly) and another one for my remote work login. I'm not going to carry around 3 key fobs with me wherever I go, but yet I always have my phone with me.

Having lost four tokens from another MMO that uses these (I won't mention it, because uttering its name could earn it new subscribers, and we don't want that) I am tickled pink about being able to use it on my phone. One of those times, I kid you not, I fumbled that key fob for a good two seconds before it landed in my large cup of soda.

I vastly of approve this change..

now if we only had a "orbital drop ship pass" that would take us *back* to where we just "*fleeted from*" .... i even agree to a 1 hour time on that.

It would allow a leveler to fleet out, get gear off the gtn or clear the gear he/she has collected and "drop" back where they left off.





Fix the RED text.

I missed this change in the patch notes, it almost makes this ridiculous maintenance worthwhile.

Have fun fleet passing!

This is awesome. Maybe not SSSP awesome, or free Varactyl mount awesome, but still awesome. It gives me a reason to actually unlock these cooldown reductions, as before they were just meh. For me, it'll be a great little time saver, as I like to log out in the VIP room at the fleet for convenience.

If I'm at home, sure. But if I'm at work, or a friend's house, or on the road in the airport, I may not have the key fob with me / easily accessible. On the other hand, I always have my phone.

But different strokes for different folks. My reasons for preferring the app version are good enough for me. Your reasons for preferring the physical key are good enough for you.

No matter if you prefer the physical key or the app, this is the real reason to have a security key. Free cartel coins. Oh, and less chance of someone taking over your account, that's important too.

Can we get some other extra-useful-mega-wanted-convenience item in the security key vendor, now that fleet passes are useless?

One thing I did notice though, is that the fleet pass reductions are only unlockable with credits 100k, 200k and 300k and no option for cartel coins. Is that an oversight or intended?
"Hey Chewie, do you wanna just... hang out here in space? After we hang out for a bit, do you wanna just, y'know, fly off in that direction? See if we can find anything? And hey, maybe we can find some asteroids and mine them or something, I dunno.' Yeah, me neither."
