Very disheartening and to me at least, the Support Forum response in the thread about people having this particular issues was a bit cavalier. People impacted by the issue don't care if "you just don't see the issue..." State of the Game Update says the feature can be disabled and will be disabled, if requested. We need to "think that one through", as in, having email authentication removed for security reasons????
Honestly, WTF do I care about account security if I can't access my account or play the game!!! I think my head is going to explode! Players impacted by this issue can't even post on the forums because that also wants you to authenticate yourself via emails we're not receiving. I had to log in using a different account.
I don't care what the issue is anymore. I'll devise my own safe system. Maybe I'll triple link emails - what the hell ever. But I can do NOTHING until it's disabled on my account. Nope, all I can do is continue to wait.
It's like some of the people handling tickets aren't insync with the State of the Game instructions. In the very first ticket, I provided a new secure email to use but all that happened was a password reset.
I have a new theory about GW2 Authentication Email. It's like herpes. Once you turn it on...
