Man, I really feel ripped off. I bought the game online and got banned for the website retailer using a fraudulent key. Went and bought the hardcopy, completely uninstalled game, reinstalled the hard copy and was immediatly prompted to link new key to the old account with no other options. After account linked, still got the error screen and could not access due to old account being banned! Luckily the original company never charged me but I am still out of luck for the 60 dollars I paid for the hardcopy that will not work.
Really I’m out 120.00 because wife also bought it and won’t play unless I do. I submitted a trouble ticket over 2 weeks ago, got the standard “Thanks for contacting Guild Wars 2 Support. Someone will be reviewing your ticket shortly. If you would like to add to or update your support ticket, please reply to this message or update your incident by clicking the link below. We appreciate your patience and will reply shortly.”
Updated trouble ticket referencing the original Incident number and everything. Same response.
No recourse, can’t call anybody, can’t email anyone. Really sucks. Thank you very much Arena Net, you have managed to get me for 120.00. A technical issue that can be resolved is one thing. NO customer support or having any way to fix is quite another.
I don’t expect any reply or resolution to this and did not feel like posting it in the 55+page unresolved account issue thread above.
On a positive note, Planetside 2 is a RIOT!
