    even SWTOR has one.

    Not that anyone is going to hack SWTOR :)

    Yeah, they do need one.  It's a nice problem for them to have though, as it means success.

    Avatars are people too

    It is true they need one, but what they really need is the most basic thing with account security. Do not let people change their email, account name, or password without getting secondary authorization. That you have to authorized *before* the change. That's pretty basic, and they don't have it.

    "There are two great powers, and they've been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit."

    I'm surprised they don't have extra security, since GW1 did.

    Yeah, I agree. I would buy one ASAP. I am not surprised that it doesnt have one though, particularly at launch.

    But lets hope they make one.
