And since this topic is about security and you are the Senior Manager of Security, i hope you dont mind me asking:

When will we in Europe and Asia-Pacific be able to buy Physical Security Keys?

And please dont give me that baloney that its possible via the Origin Store, or even via the US Origin Store... cause they dont ship outside the US.
Dude, atleast in germany we can buy physical security keys from any tech markt.. like Saturn or Media Markt...

I, personally, don't want to have to call customer service to get my account re-enabled over and over again if someone decides they want to pick on me. That would be enough to make me not want to play this game anymore.

Are there any plans to address this scenario?
Someone (well, probably several someones) asked about this scenario up top, and Phillip directly addressed it (it is the second scenario of the two he's responding to):

They'll probably associate a range of IPs to your login and when you access services from an unrecognized range you'll have to authenticate further through your mobile device, e-mail, security questions, or a combination of the 3.

Hell, they might even ask you to recognize the names of your characters and, if correct, the last flashpoint / operation /warzone you ran on it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that my name is a registered trademark and it's good to know they can't make me change it without breaking everything.

At least for me personally all would be fine, if they implemented a system like that. I consider it reasonable secure. It's just that you're already able to login with your account name, and I didn't encounter any problems, as I tried to login from a pc that I have definitely not used before.

Logic!

And blizzard has a liitle bit more user and my email adress on the battle net is additional my login to sc2 and D3 and wow
The reasons they are doing this was stated. Blizzard has lots of backend validation including delays on cc purchases. Lots of valid methods each with risks and strengths. This is a good approach for helping people that may not realize all the dangers. You dont seriously think this is less secure do you? If i am not mistaken you can log on with the account name now.

But you are certainly entitled to your roll eyes opinion. Stay in a holiday inn last night?

Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing it tighten up a bit which seems like what they're trying to do. I look forward to reading the run down of what's coming.

I would like to take this moment to recognize the work of the late, great Bettie Page. A body type 2 if there ever was one.

This is a pretty bad Idea EA. You should reconsider it.
