Hey so one of my friends cant log in to his account, he never received his one-time password, and he tried changing his password but didnt get any of their e-mails so he cant do anything. Is there anything that can be done?

I cannot play SWTOR unless I use the so-called "one-time" password every single time.

Why is SWTOR more fortified than the Kremlin? Is hacking so epidemic that such ridiculous measures are required? Or is it that a few idiots who can't choose a good password are ruining it for the rest of us?

I'm not a computer security guru, but does a game password that depends on another A) password-protected B) third-party C) email message loaded in a D) browser really offer better security than personalized questions?

No one would tolerate this level of annoyance from any online store, and gaming is far less important than financial transactions. For me at least, SWTOR is green obtuse tending to blue nonagon!

Here is the (disclaimer) HYPOTHETICAL!! situation. PH wanted a job with Interpol or the CIA as an elite and ultra secret international code breaker but Frank W. Abagnale would not hire him due to his lack of humor and interpersonal skills, so he submitted his very impressive resume to Bioware which had numerous jobs available at a reduced salary after firing all its 6 figure employees. Now PH is proving to the big shot encryption experts that he has the brilliance and intellect to create a system that is so ultra protected that even the intended account holders cant access it. Mohahaha meh, ha, ha, hmm, umm. hm.

PH Shall have his REVENGE!!!,

Can't log into the game, either since the last patch. None of the fixes work for me.

But I can sleep well at night knowing my game is secure.

Is it worth pointing out the sad irony of another Star Wars franchise being driven into the ground by lame ideas? We have been Jar Jarred.

So what this means is, either i get prompted every time - or i lower my personal safety measures on my computer? Which is kinda counterproductive since one of the reasons i do this is to prevent others from access to my email...
And this is why the chages were not thought out. it opens all of us to more risk not less.

For Germany the solution with the IP is not the right one. 90% of all ISP's has a 24h disconnect per default ans every 24h we got a new IP. Bind it to IP range. Test the IP to the IP Range of the ISP from the last Login, thats ok. But the whole IP is Stupid.

Using Mobile token app is no solution. Mobile device can break. I had that in my time on playing Diablo 3. Mobile Device broken on firmware update. It takes 3 days to remove my token from account so that I can play again.

Buy hardware token is also no solution. I must have it to play. I wanna sit down to my laptop and play. my Phone is in the car. my security token also, but I can't play without? No way.

So remove this stupid OTP or change it to check ISP IP range.
