...the real life story of an honest gamer.
Very excited for this game! Yes I preordered, and yes I sat clicking on "Login" almost for 5 hours on headstart day!
After 2 days of gameplay - nothing extrodinary, just some xping, and lvl 80 PvPing - I got kicked from the game. When I tried to log back in, it said I was "blocked". A friend of mine told me to visit a site where I read I wasn't the only one blocked. I read further and found out that these blocks were made for either A) your name was a cause for the infraction. or your account was hacked by a gold seller.
First I would like to say that either reasons is not cause for blocking an account for 3 days.
Why? Well if your name is an infraction, let the player change it or maybe Anet should have blocked it in the first place from being able to be made? Now if your account was hacked.. "how" is the first question I ask. I reformatted just a week ago, so please don't tell me I'm full of viruses and key loggers that hooked these gold selling guys up with my password specific to Guild Wars 2. So how else did they get it?... and many more like me had theirs hacked. How did this happen? In my opinion, you would have to ask Anet.
So today is the 5th day... 3 days of being blocked. I start the client, and blam! "Your account has been permanantly banned." Why? No idea seeing as I changed my password for a 2nd time.. again unique to GW2, and I haven't been permitted to log in for the last 3 days.
Expensive $70 lesson - don't invest in ArenaNet or NCsoft in the future.
