I've been missing from the game stuff a while, and apparently my steam account and BDO account got raided. Fixed the steam account but my BDO got fried. Yes, using the same account email and PW is a bad idea. Fortunately I do change things up a bit so they were the only things that had common credentials. Traced both back to the same .ru email account.
Kakao was fairly kind and gave me an account and some extras, but I have to start over ... ugh. I won't even get my names back until they figure out how to free old names. So, I have a lot of name experiments to do.
