The Account... Thing... Yeah...So...
Apparently, some people have had their accounts stolen.
You might have heard.
I think I saw a forum post about it yesterday.
Okay, I totally understand where you guys are coming from. People's accounts are being taken and you don't see us jumping in to help. You may think that means we don't care.
We totally care.
I mean... that could have been us.
More importantly, it could have been me.
I really do care that this is happening to players.
Not as much as if it was my own account, but there is a substantial amount of caring.
But there is a much bigger problem to be addressed here. This is about far more than people losing access to their accounts. This is about more than players being abused by cheaters.
Let us not forget to look at the bigger picture here, people.
This is about the fact that I'm getting 15 bajillion GM calls every day.
Isn't that the real tragedy?
I'm totally kidding.
Seriously. Put the gun down.
You can't even understand how much this pisses me off.
I hate RMT on the best of days. Then these tards start stealing accounts.
I guess ruining your game indirectly just wasn't cutting it. They decided to go with a more direct approach.
Apparently, their next plan is to just come to your house and kick you in the junk.
Unfortunately, the situation is a little harder to sort out than you might think.
At least, that's what my supervisor told me when I suggested we find them and break their knee caps with a ball peen hammer.
It was a solid plan.
It had diagrams.
On a related note, my printer's out of red ink now.
So, you're probably asking yourself how this situation could be difficult to handle. Account stolen, give account back. Simple, right?
This seems simple because you are still a normal person.
See, for every report we get of a stolen account, we get 5 more from people making false reports trying to get access to someone else's account.
It's like there's a line up for people to screw each other over.
We kind of have to go through this funny little process of figuring out which assholes actually stole accounts and which assholes are trying to steal another account. We have to be very, very careful about transferring control of an account.
It isn't like breaking knee caps.
Trust me, we're doing something. It'll take some time, but we're doing something.
And if any RMT happen to be reading this, I was kidding about the hammer thing.
On a completely unrelated topic, you might want to check to see if your building is wheelchair accessible.
