Finished with GW's

Postby [FnG] Unholy Eve » Mon Mar 07, 2011 2:17 pm

Well after a 2 week break from GW's after Farming like the wind in the last festival (earning around 1Mil in gold) it seems that my account has been hacked as confirmed by the lovely people at NCSoft Support.

Hello Darren,

Thank you for contacting the NCsoft Customer Support Team.

After investigating the reported issue, we can confirm that your account has been blocked as a security measure.

In order to prevent your Guild Wars account from being compromised or even hacked in the future, please check our Security FAQ article that includes important information on how to keep your Guild Wars account secure.

As far as items, characters, or gold that were lost due to your account being hacked, we are unable to replace any of them. We highly recommend following the suggestions listed in the article mentioned above to avoid such an inconvenience.

If you have also lost control of your email account we recommend you contact your email provider to attempt to get control of that again.


Well once I do gain controll of it again, after a quick damage report and seeing just how bad it is I may or may not quit. If Unholy eve has been deleted then yer thats GW1 finished with for good. If everythings been stirpped down then maybe I might try and rebuild but only for the Survivor title then that will be me finished.

Angry Eve out...... :Beye: :panic: :cry:

I had mine hacked last year, confirmed by Anet that is was Korean gold farmers, had the dates and everything but there was apparently nothing they could do to get all (and I mean all from 10 characters and full storage) my stuff back so I'm also done with the GW series.

If I have been completely cleanded out then highly doubt I'll play again which is a shame since I was just starting to go for maxing out my Hall of Monuments and had 190 Ecto and 400k cash to buy Weapons and the last few armors that I needed.

If Eve/Lulu is still there but stripped then I can possibly farm enough to finish of Leg survivor on Eve and then thats it over but if they've all been deleted then thats it over and done with. Re-create the characters just to reserve the names in GW2 but thats it.

So I finally got my account back just now and going through it really does sadden me.
Just looking through my characters and seeing just how empty it all is now and how much has been stolen makes me a sad Eve :cry: .

This is what I was left with

Image

What was stolen:

1500+ Dyes (5 year collection)
1500 Shamrock Ales
1000+ Party Points
770 Firewaters
500+ Other Drinks
187 Ecto
100+ None ID'd Gold Items
All Weapons
All Extra Character Armor
Quest reward Items
All Runes
1 Mini Unded Gwen
1 Dedi Kunny
1 Dedi Destroyer
Celestial Rat, Ox, Tiger
1 Mini Pig
20 other random minis
400k+ Gold
Everything not customized

Its gone, its all gone. Just like my enjoyment I used to have with the game.
Oh well time to move on I guess.

Eve

My sympathies, Eve. So sorry to hear that.

Hope you can rejoin us for GW 2 (with a strong, unique password not used elsewhere), :thumbup:

Yes lets go for stronger passwords next time.

I've been getting loads of emails recently 'perhaps' from Blizzard stating my old WOW account has been hacked.
But I can't tell whether a) this is a spam fishing attempt in itself and b) I can't be bothered to reinstall a game I dont pay just to see.

Saying that even when i dont play the game anymore ( not for over 2 years maybe longer) it still gives me a sort of
hollow feeling inside that my stuff/characters may be gone.

So sympathy for the loss - and all of us should make our passwords longer and more complicated

Anyone who says they know what's going on are probably lying.
Anyone who believes they know what's going on is dangerous and should be avoided at all cost.

So after finally remembering my Nsoft account details and changing my current GW password it turns out that its been hacked for a 2nd time which would explain why I couldn't access it for all this time.
