               Hmm, is it just the NWN accounts or this particular social.bioware account?

               @Xyno I believe while they say nwn it is both. As I received my email 8 days after it happened to reset my pw for my social.bioware acct.

               It forces you to change the EA account too that is linked to the Bioware one for those of us with DA or DAII games as well as NWN. The bad part is I don't remember my old Bioware account password and it goes to a dead email address anyway. Oh well.

               How do U retrieve the cd keys that were left on your account... Over the years, I have lost the actual hard copy of the game and the hard copy of the keys. But my keys were registered on my account. Fine it was hacked, but I just need the keys to install. Everytime I installed the game, I retrieved the keys from nwn.bioware.com, but now i have learned that its no more.. so where is my key???

               How do I find out what information was available on my old NWN account? I never received any email from EA/Bioware about any account issues. Does this mean that I'm in the clear?

               I changed my email since then, so no way to know for me whether I got an email from Bio, since I can't access my old email address. Oh well guess I will wait and see what happens.  And on a side note I don't plan to update my profile with my actual new email.  I suppose I can understand the logic of requiring an email address to login to the forums, but now that those email addresses were compromised I will no longer log on to a website that requires my email address.  So I suppose that is plus there.  I guess.

Social.bioware.com accounts are not affected. Only the "classic" site was breached. Unfortunately this is where our CD keys were stored.

And of course, you need them to install the game.

Yes,
you need keys to install the game, but even if the mothership is
inaccessible the install will continue.  From what I understand, GoG
includes a common set of keys in their install so the the game bypasses
the key entry screen.  The only NWN players this affected are
those playing on multiplayer servers and only those servers that have
enabled the option to only allow players on while the Master Server is
responding.

As an NWN server operator, we depend on the Master
Server authentication to ensure that the people logging in are entitled
to the characters in their servervault.


Yes. GoG.com users won't have any problems. Steam users purchasing NWN2 may not be so lucky (I don't know if NWN2 still does an online authentication during install or not).

Unfortunately lot of older users are also having problems. A number of people have posted in regards to reinstalling the game but being unable to retrieve their keys already. Peeps: take 5 minutes when you do an install to create a notepad file with all your CD keys on it and store it someplace safe. I have such a file on all my rigs and one in dropbox for good measure.

@Plasma: THAT explains why I have so much trouble with PWs. I have three different rigs with three different CD keys (so I can have friends over to game or test builds with multiple characters).

               Ok, for NWN and NWN2, both have "CD KEYS" for the installation, NOT Online verification keys.

I hope that clears that up.

               This is worrying. I had quite alot of CD-keys written down on my account. Since I like being able to host RP-lan parties, I had about 4 NWN Diamond CD-keys racked up over the years and 2 for NWN2 Platinum.

I would very much like to know what the status is on the keys. Will I get new ones or will the online CD-key check be removed or what? So yah. Subcribing to this thread to keep myself updated.

               I understand. I only lost one but it was registered under an old account and I'm not sure I have email access to the account any more. I still have three or four valid CD keys so my friends can play, but the one I lost is the one that WCoC is registered to.

I'm very pissed off about that.

Thats the same thing I want to know. I think they'll need to remove the online CD-key check now that all this has happened.

               So the breach was on the old servers where the CD keys were stored and linked to the Premium modules? Will I ever be able to play them again?
