Ascension Login Trials

I went through last night and made sure the four EVE Online accounts I have all had their email addresses verified.  I managed to assign each one a different email address, but the verification links all went through okay.

Today, however, upon arriving home, I have only been able to get into two of those accounts.  Fortunately, Wilhelm was one of them.  He got logged in and was given the message about being an Omega Clone.

I also got a glimpse of the new character sheet.

Dealing with skills is a little bit… well… fiddly now.  Every time you mouse over something an info window springs into view, sometimes just where you don’t want it to be.  But at least you don’t have to turn the queue on and off again to clone jump any more.  Or so I’ve been told.

I was also able to get an alt up and going.  Verification code arrived via email, no problem.

But the other two accounts, neither of them got their code, despite the fact that both of them got their verification links in the mail just the night before.  Probably not coincidentally, both of those accounts have a Yahoo email address, a legacy of past times.  I wouldn’t make a new Yahoo email address on a dare these days, as everything they touch just turns to shit.

Anyway, that is where I stand.  Two accounts good, two accounts somewhere in the weeds.  Going to the CCP site and trying to do account recovery also yielded no email response.  Nothing in the spam folder, no response visible at all.  So either there is a problem sending to Yahoo accounts or Yahoo is eating the email responses somewhere along the way.

    Better than mine. Only one account, and that came up fine, only to find that a skill that was training 3 days ago (6 day, 18 hour skill total skill time) started from scratch at restart today. Oh yeah, and 28 plex I had purchased with ISK some weeks ago are completely gone… biggie at all there. Naturally, CCP said go screw yourself with regard to the plex and no response at all to the skill training thing. But hey, given the grief I have given them and their collusion buddies for years, what can I expect otherwise.

    @Dinsdale Pirannha – As an RMT cartel mouthpiece, I can officially confirm that Alex and Hilmar got together and specifically set out to screw you over with this patch. Repent your blasphemies or feel their wrath or some such.

    Sorry for your loss, but you do insist on framing literally everything in EVE around this all powerful RMT cartel and how they control CCP. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, as they say.

    @evehermit – I woke up this morning to find that at some point while I was asleep all of the verification codes I had requested last night had finally showed up. I still think Yahoo is still part of the problem, given that I had no similar issue with non-Yahoo accounts, and your links bear that out, but at least it is a sign that they might work once things settle down.
