Playing from two locations
Return to board index
I have a annoying problem and hope someone can help. I have a job that, once everything is done, is purely wait and make sure something don't frak up, so I can play at work.
I have a desktop at home. I have a desktop at work. I do not desire to lug a laptop back and forth.
The two comps obviously have two installs of WoW. I have an authenticator and removing it is not an option.
BattleDOTnet is being a pain. If I leave home and drive to work and log on, it locks my account saying I am not on the computer it recognizes and I have to log in and change the password. Vice versa on the return trip. That is two pw changes a day and really annoying.
Does anyone know of a way to link(?) the two installs somehow so BattleDOTnet does not lock the account every time I log onto whichever one I was not just on? Not sure if this is a file somewhere or it is server side linked to an IP (yes, they are different. 30 miles between work and home).
Once you have confirmed both locations, it should remember that it's you playing there for a while... it's probably better go ask this on the official forums in the Technical Support section, or write a ticket about it. That way you can get an official response.
It seems to be random when it asks for the PW change. I travel regularly for work and sometimes have to jump thru those hoops and other times do not. there does not seem to be rhyme or reason for it.
Just keep at it. I had this issue when I moved from one coast to the other (even though it never triggered in previous instances of me moving in such a way) and unlocking the account a couple times fixed it.
Although I did file a ticket and that MAY have expedited the process.
