    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    In an attempt to play guild wars, I reinstalled the game.

    THEN THE GOD DAMN GAME ASKED ME FOR ONE OF MY CHARACTERS NAME IN WHICH I DON'T REMEMBER AT ALL

    THEN I RESET THE PASSWORD ON A EMAIL I CAN'T REMEMBER THE PASSWORD OF AT ALL


    Oh dear god, I am so tearing the place apart.


    I had prophecies and nightfall :smith:
    I had a similar situation when I reinstalled a month or 2 ago. Instead of forgetting my character name, Id forgotten the email I had used to register (which is the username xD) and the password :(
    Just contact their support and they'll easily help you out. You just need to make sure you have the keys for each game, because that'll be they key bit of information they need to prove its your account :P

    God damnit. That's long gone. All I can prove is photographic proof, but then they'll just think I borrowed someone elses game.

    The game's key is on a little card that comes with the game... It's the most important thing in the box (you don't need the CD, they let you download the client for free), how could you lose it?

    The game has been lying around in my house for 3 years now. I was merely 14 when I got the damn game. I didn't care about keeping the important stuff, I just wanted to play.
    Also, there have been several months between my gaming sessions, ranging up to 6 months. You stow it away, you find it, play it. Stow it away. Then you lose the key, don't give a shit, still remember the password, play.
    Rinse and repeat

    This is why I use the same 7 or so passwords for everything. And never the same one having to do with one situation (I'll never use the password for my email account for anything else, but I will use a password more than once for multiple accounts in different places, like Aeria Games/Perfect world for example)

    That way if I forget a password, I just know it's one of the others... Of course if I don't use one for a year, I'll forget it because they're complicated as all hell

    Well, I knew the password. But I reset it (aka sent a new password) to a very old Email address, which I can't remember the password of.
    So I'm kinda fucked. Unless NCsoft magically transfers my account over to another email address or tells me the password.

    If you go to your NCSOFT main account page on their website, I'm pretty sure you can change your email.

    I feel ya, I decided to start playing again about.. two or three weeks ago? I stopped playing two years before this, and had forgotten my old email. I contacted support, asked if it was possible to recover my account. I told them I didn't have my game keys anymore, and I didn't get a response for THREE days.. And when they did respond, guess what I got? "Can you please tell us all of the keys linked to your account". So, I said I didn't have any of my old game keys again, and then waited another two days only to get "We are putting you through to another branch of support" or something, so I just said fuck it. I spent a while trying to hack into my old account, and finally got it.

    I'm glad I was lucky enough to hack into it too, I had 700 hour of playtime with a couple sets of 15k armor and shiz..

    Looking back on some of my old character builds, my god I sucked.. Koss was set up as an elementalist and my Derv was just sad.

    I haven't linked my guild wars account to a NCSoft account.

    I got banned for 60 hours once months back for excessive spamming/messaging.

    Emailed Support saying I absolutely meant no malicious intent and did it only because I was excited about the new Guild Wars 2 video being live on the site.

    The ban got removed of course.

    Hahaha. I kept on getting interrupted, so my normally 45 minute UW run became an 8 hour and 4 minute UW run. Because there was so much time between kills, I got more drops than average, and 3.6k JUST in gold drops.

    I've never gotten past the Terrorweb Dryders, but then again I've never done anything but farm there..

    I made a Ranger last night and got him to level 20 in ten hours, then got him Standard Kurzick armor in the next 5 hours. I love Factions..

    Also I was very pleased when I found this (Not going to show it here due to resolution)

    I'd recommend making a Ritualist, they can solo the Underworld pretty well.. Though you don't have to be a ritualist, I don't have a rit and just use the build with my elementalist. It also works for rangers, most people say it works pretty well with most professions, except for warrior obviously. Uhm.

    Talk like a Pirate weekend is amazing..

    I know, I had a spirit spammer rit and R/Rt before I got banned.
    Though I'm going to focus mostly on completion/HoM, got alot of catching up to do to get up to my old one (almost had entire HoM completed when I got banned >_>)

    By the way Lucario, Map mod in texmod; Masters is 2.5, bonus is 3? o.o

    I might re-buy this. I bought Factions a long time ago and played it a lot, but stopped playing after a while. After watching some videos for Guild Wars 2 I wanted to play again, but I don't remember my account and some of my game discs are either missing or damaged.

    You don't need the discs. You can download the entire game from the GW Website, Download the client, and when it installs the needed files, before you launch Guild Wars, add -image to the target line of the shortcut, and it will download everything. Then remove -image and use shortcut to start GW. You don't have to download all the files at once, but I prefer it. It's download them all in one lump sum over the course of a few hours, Or wait 5+ minutes every time you hit an area you haven't visited since installing the game while it downloads it then

    You'll still need to login to your account once in-game though... How can you not remember it?

    Anyway, I managed to hit level 20 in a personal record of just over 4 hours

    If you play GW1 after seeing GW2 stuff you're just gonna sit around thinking "GW2 will be much more fun than this". I pretty much stopped playing (after doing about 6 hours a day for over a year) thanks to GW2.

    On the plus side, I am doing something constructive with my time... At least until GW2 comes out.
