    GW2 support accounts can be separate from main game accounts, so you can create a support account without having a GW2 game account (stranglely enough).  I had to do this to submit my first ticket.  My second support ticket was without being logged into any account (don't need an account to submit a ticket).

    In regards to purchase issues, I see the transaction listed in my bank statement:

    CHARGE.NCSOFT.COM ###### 79.99

    I would think they would have notified me by email or something if there was a billing problem.  There shouldn't be though.
     
    Last resort is to get a refund, which sucks cause I like the game.  Hopefully I don't have to resort to calling their dev office.  I'm not beyond it though.
     
    ... and to the person that said I need to quit playing games and get laid, I get mine.

    It is your name - read the naming rules. From A.Net

    We do not permit names that:

    • Have offensive racial, ethnic, or national connotations.
    • Include hate speech or bigoted slurs
    • Reference sexual acts or real life violence.
    • Are pornographic.
    • Make inappropriate references to human anatomy or bodily functions.
    • Reference illegal drugs or activities.
    • Reference religious or historical figures.
    • Reference real-life people.
    • Reference names of copyrighted or trademarked characters, materials, or products.
    • Use misspellings or alternative spellings of names that violate any of the above rules.
    Your name is a misspelling of Ritz - as in cracker and that is a trademarked name. If you didn't know that then plead ignorance and ask to rename your character. DONE

    There is good games that i simple refuse to play because of the shitty company behind.

    Would Anet have handled my concern properly, i would own GW2 this day.

    Now, ill never own a game anymore were Anet is involved.

    So it is with Gala/gPot or that Face of Mankind people or whoever failed to handle my online being with the needed responsibility.

     

    Im not throwing valuable livetime into a project anymore, that could fell on my back after too mutch time.

    That was NCSoft - not A.Net please get it straight. A.Net separated the NCSoft accounts from the A.Net acoounts when GW2 was in Beta. SO don't balem A.Net for what NCSoft did. Also - there is no way they would ask for a Passport picture - SORRY THAT IS BULLSHIT ON YOUR PART. I had a ban on my account too - I had to give the key number, my email, my address, names of my characters and I got my account back. Sorry what you posted is BULLSHIT!! No company worth it's salt would not ask for a passport picture and credit card - I call you on it.

    Same went for me.... took me about 30 minutes on the phone and account was active before I hung up.

    mhm .. ok

    so its obviously complete other people with a complete different attitude there then ?

    edit: ah ya, the character names it was, he wanted to know the char names.

    and sorry too, it is not BS, it really happend ^^

    That's a bit of a stretch, considering the spelling alterations.  The name is actually French.  It has nothing to do with crackers.

    Just the other day someone had their account name (not in-game nick) changed because they 'might' have posted on the forums and someone 'might' have seen it and 'might' been offended by it.

    Puritanical levels of moderation are never good.

    People using racial slurrs in every other sentence also think the rest of the world are "puritans". That doesn't make what they say any more right for the law.

    So your little diatribe means nothing unless you give us a precise information, like what that name really was. Until then, it's only you using an imaginary situation in order to try to validate your opinion.

     

    diatribe

    a bitter or violent criticism or attack; denunciation

    N/A

    Anyway, the account name was ChentallyMallengedXXXX

    My account was banned 2 yrs ago from GW1 - it was a mistake - but I had to go through the hoops to unlock it - no pictures just the number on the key code card, the names of my characters, my email and my password. They never asked me for any PASSPORT, CREDIT CARD, or anything like that and they said they never would. What is so hard to understand about that? That is what I am calling bullshit

    I say bullshit. I was communicating with NCsoft support about getting my gw1 account back some time ago, and they never asked for things marked in red (pictures ? really ? ... lol). Ppl like you make complaints about wrongfully banned account (which can happen) less credible and not helping the cause.

    i got my account hacked on day one..took me 10 days to get my account back..then they banned me for what the hacker did..took me another 2 days to get it sorted..Anet are not the brightest apples in the bunch but has long as when you contact them and your not abusive they will sort it for you..it was my fault i got hacked so it was down to my stupidity in the end.just be patient.they seem to deal with these problems a lot quicker than they did on release.mind you they had 10000 accounts hacked the first few days..good  luck getting it sorted.

    if that was even remotely true they would have enforced a name change, not a complete account ban.. so i think you'll have to come up with another reason as the whole Ritz thing is a stretch.image

    If that's the case, than it's one of the most idiotic, petty reasons I've ever heard of someone being permabanned for. Furthermore how in the hell do they know it's even pronounced the same?

    I've no love for Anet, but if they banned  (permanently, I might add) someone for that than they've really sunk to a new low. Simply ridiculous. Hell, just about every name out there could be considered a 'misspelling' of something copyrighted when you think about it.

    I really don't think Anet would be that stupid.

    Not true of NCSoft.  I didn't even know my account was banned for City of Heroes.  Never received an email and couldn't get a response from them through email or a support ticket.  I had to call them to find out why they had banned my account, I was included in a batch of suspected hackers.  Funny considering I have never used an addon or cheat ever.  Anyway, they immediately re-instated my account.  It would seem that many times, they just ban blocks of account and figure only legit customers would bother to call and have it fixed.

     

    My suggestion to the OP is to call directly.  Don't bother with the long waits associated with board posts or social media sites.  Both ANet and NCSoft have phone centers for this sort of thing.

    I think it makes sense - it seems like a stupid rule but A.Net was almost sued in GW1 for some of the NPC names in game. So they went very strict on this. The rules are in the EULA and are plastered all over the place - what more do you want?

    I don't think that's the case. If you have offensive name other players should report you and then Arenanet will request that you change the name. If you do not, you get banned. If you were banned without any notice, it must be something else!

    Contanct support and request the reason!

    At the very least, ANet could have offered security keys from day one.  It's not like they didn't know this kind of thing hasn't been available for the last couple of years.

    There is no call center. Contact support via email ticket. Prepare your cd key and bill and other account information. Request the reason for ban.

    In the tickets I submitted I provided as much information as I could.  My only other option was to post on public forums and social sites to get their attention.  A last resort would be to call their corporate office and get ugly.  Not something I really want to do but they aren't giving me much choice.  I at least want my money back.

    Character's name on Sorrow was/is "Rhytz", which doesn't seem offensive or obscene in any way.  I can't imagine that being the issue.

    GW2 support accounts can be separate from main game accounts, so you can create a support account without having a GW2 game account (stranglely enough).  I had to do this to submit my first ticket.  My second support ticket was without being logged into any account (don't need an account to submit a ticket).

    In regards to purchase issues, I see the transaction listed in my bank statement:

    CHARGE.NCSOFT.COM ###### 79.99

    I would think they would have notified me by email or something if there was a billing problem.  There shouldn't be though.
     
    Last resort is to get a refund, which sucks cause I like the game.  Hopefully I don't have to resort to calling their dev office.  I'm not beyond it though.
     
    ... and to the person that said I need to quit playing games and get laid, I get mine.

    Was your surname "Cracker"? ;)

    Worst case, you could always initiate a chargeback through your financial instituion if you can't get the ticket resolved and they won't willingly give you a refund.

    Personally I don't know if I'd want to continue playing a game where they ban first and ask questions later.  But I guess that's what you get with a non-subscription game.

    Nice try, but no.  Character didn't have a surname.

    It is not a ban first - it is a case of not reading the rules before you play. I always read the EULA no matter how long it is.

     

    It also sound like the OP, does not speak English as his primary language (am I right here?), so one can ask A.Net to unlock if they allow to rename character.

     

    Rift has the same policy and WoW does to - so don't say it is becuase it is a non-sub game.

    well op good luck, might want to check your email though.  they normally send a reason via email or some other form of communication.  apparantly you are intent on playing this game even though it is bad customer service on your end (assuming all this is true and I am assuming what you have said is true), but quite frankly I would have already had a refund.  companies just dont ban me when i paid for something, or else they wont get my business again.  I dont do things to get banned but in your case sounds like you didnt either, banning over a name is stupid, just change the persons name to generic something and tell them they have 72 hours to rename it or they will forever be known as generic character 72 or whatever. 

     

    good luck getting it sorted though.

    I agree.  Unfortunate though, because I really liked the game.  I'm trying not to go this route, provided my character hasn't been deleted.

    My GW1 account was banned last year without giving a reason to me.

    To unban it, i had to send the GM

    - a picture fom my box

    - a picture from my codecard

    - a copy of my passport

    - a copy of my creditcard

    - a report on what exacly has happend

    - a reason why i think my account should be unbanned

    - ... i forgot the rest, there was more

     

    There is good games that i simple refuse to play because of the shitty company behind.

    Would Anet have handled my concern properly, i would own GW2 this day.

    Now, ill never own a game anymore were Anet is involved.

    So it is with Gala/gPot or that Face of Mankind people or whoever failed to handle my online being with the needed responsibility.

     

    Im not throwing valuable livetime into a project anymore, that could fell on my back after too mutch time.

    Hate to tell you this... but assuming you're speaking the truth, I'd bet money you fell for a phishing scam, and weren't in contact with NCSoft at all.  Support personnel would NEVER ask for that sort of info.

    As to the OP:  It's against the game's best interests to ban a player for no reason.  So if they banned you, odds are your account did something bad, whether you did it or not.  I'd change your pwd's on every account you have, if it were me.
