    I see 0 reasons for why you'd be banned since the banning for VPN was taken out of context. I've logged in from 26 ips now.

    my VPN has been using the same IP every time, and even when i switched to it i didn't get any mail confirm, however when i used a different WiFi antenna/adapter, even tho the address was still the same i did need to confirm e-mail once, proving they go by MAC address, for whatever reason (a really smart thief would just spoof his/hers to match the account he's stealing)+^_^+

    I could say it's either lazy of sega, or conveniently setup by sega knowing some people have internet that switches IP everytime they reboot, or reconnect. (or some shit)

    There are people logging in from Netcafe that woun't have set IP.
    And also business people that travel and use Hotel internet with different IP.
    Basicly, it's one of the flag they use, but if it's not tied to account with large AC or mass trading/selling going on, they won't take a closer look at it.

    There's hardly any relation between Authentication email each time your IP/computer changes and hacking proof authentication system.
    If a crackers gets your PSO2 IDs, he/she'll have access to your mail too. And most of the methods used to gather people's passwords allow to sniff ALL of them, not just your PSO2 creds.

    Actually, it has been demonstrated many times that an IP address should NEVER be used as an authentication factor, unless there's a special setup involved.
    Machine based, even though still weak, is already more relevant because changing IP regularly is normal, when changing computer regurlarly could be more suspicious.

    I thought so too. This thread is a disappointment (not sure I spelled it right).
