BioWare Removing Email Log-Ins from Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted on March 6, 2013 AT 06:01am

BioWare has announced that starting this April players will no longer be able to log-in to their Star Wars: The Old Republic account using their email address.

From April 2 players will have to log-in to both the game and website using their display names to further increase the game’s security. ”This change increases the security of our game authentication system, which helps continue to keep the game protected from many security threats including account takeovers,” the developer said.

If you’re unsure of what your display name is you can log into the game’s official website now using your email address to find out. Players can use their display name to log-in to the game from now, but it will become mandatory after April 2.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
