I was just thinking. With the recent phishing thread and my near miss last night, I wonder something. Some sites like yahoo e-mail and such have a safety mechanism, whereby if a password is incorrectly entered so many times in a row, no further attempts to log in can be made for 24 RL clock hours. I wonder if EA put in something like this if it would prevent some players from having their accounts stolen through somebody *guessing* their passwords.....that is if the hacker attempted it, they'd have to get it right, say within 5 tries or he was just SOL. Would it be worth the added security to players or do you think it would piss people off more to be locked out of their own accounts because of repeated finger misplacement. My keyboard is in bad need of replacement, half the keys are not labeled so I often typo passwords logging in especially since you can't see what you typed before you hit enter, but I can't remember ever doing it more than 3 times before finally taking the time to count the keys and get it right. What do we think, community? Is this a feature we'd like to see? I had an EA account hacked into at a time that I wasn't playing TSO currently, but I was playing Club Pogo and before I could get the account back I ended up losing millions of tokens because the idiot bought a bunch of useless crap in the Mini Mall with them, and he caused alot of drama with the account impersonating me. I'd happily put up with being locked out of that account for an hour if I mistyped the password a bunch of times in a row if it meant that I was guaranteed for that to not happen again. It's just virtual 'stuff' with no RL value, but still that represented alot of time I spent earning the tokens, and alot of grief putting up with bull crap from players who thought it was me that did the stuff the guy did...took months to really get all the drama alone to die down. Whether or not you have ever had one of your accounts hacked, would a safety measure like this be worth the risk of being locked out yourself, to you?
