Seven Year Itch
So, I have been referring to World of Warcraft to my friends lately, comparing it to an old boot. It’s comfortable, and you know exactly what you’re going to get when you set out to play it. It’s very nice having that kind of safety net of a game. Of course, in the heyday of my Blizzardcrush, I’d come home and play nothing but WoW. so would a lot of my friends, and we all took the precaution of having an authenticator on our games.
Time passed, and tastes changed. We moved from WoW to Diablo to Starcraft and then to other games. We lost our crushes. Summer was over, and in the winter time, we all got new phones for Christmas, and lost our authenticators. Well, I did, anyway.
I want to report that the process was relatively harmless, even without having my CDs like I did the last time this happened, which was in Korea. In what amounts to the same circumstance of changing mobile devices, I switched phones when I got to my new home in Daegu. I had to call Blizzard, give them my CD’s serial number to remove my old phone, and then add my new phone from Korea, and it was well worth it. Now home, I find myself having to do the same thing, but I don’t have the CD serial numbers to get me back in. Blizzard offers an additional option to send them a government issued ID.
I don’t know if this will somehow come to bite me in the ass, but they offer other options for security, such as SMS, that I may look into.
But now, I have to go back to Starcraft II. I’m about to scratch that itch I get so often, and go slip on some old boots.
