    I've contacted support to try to get access back to an old account (forgot login, email with an isp that no longer exists, created before ea or mythic account systems) and haven't heard back for about a week now. Has anyone else successfully recovered old accounts? How long does it take support to respond and resolve issues?

    My brother and I each reactivated our old accounts last year. It took a couple (1-2) days to receive the initial reply and a few more to finish the process. So, I'm surprised you haven't heard back even after a week. To which email address are you sending your correspondence?

    You should be contacting [email protected]. The more of the following information you can provide them better:
    • Name of the account
    • First and Last name on account
    • Email on account
    • Date of birth on account
    • Any character names found on the account (name and shard)
    • Phone number on the account
    • Date when account was opened and closed
    • Country and /or State of residency
    • Last four digits of credit card on account
    • Date of last login to account

    Thanks. For anyone wondering, I was able to get my account back. It took about 12 or 13 days and required much of the info LowdownandShifty posted.

    However, the account only lists Renaissance activated (which I never even bought). I've contacted support asking how to enable other expansions since many of them no longer seem available on the uo store. I'm hoping that subscribing or buying Stygian Abyss fixes this, and not so eager to jump in with both feet since they seem to either be a bit understaffed or have a hard time navigating their accounts & billing software.

    Hey there. Well it is a pretty convoluted system for applying things to your account and so forth. Only SE is more infamous for their FFXI series with applying rewards/other to accounts. Keep in mind though, they are transitioning from EA Mythic to Broadsword I do believe.
