I haven't played on my original account in several years. I bought a new copy a while back, but got discouraged by having to start ALL THE WAY OVER. Now that FF14 has been announced, I wanted to finish the rest of most of the stories in the mean time (I know they won't have any relation to each other, but for completeness sake). I have my playonline ID and all the reg codes, but no credit card info (card has long since been cancelled). I tried this once before and didn't get anywhere. Today, they asked me for a bunch of info that I did know since I didn't have the CC info, and they reset my password to playonline. However, I still had to dl and update the playonline viewer which took about 45 minutes. When I tried the password, it said it was incorrect.. and I tried it about 10 times with different variations and still no go. support is closed now, but I was wondering if anyone knew how long these password resets last.. I'm thinking it might have only been a temp password and they assumed I'd be changing it immediately.
