My old Anarchy Online account. I just recovered it. It’s been years since I played it. Still not playing it. I just wanted to recover it with new info. It was my first MMO back in 2001.

My EQ2 account has an aol email which has long since been abandoned so that’s gone plus it’s changed company and doubt it’s even recoverable. Many other games too in a similar scenario.

Two of the only things I use excel for – account info and quest tracking.

I keep a file box with all the info on 3×5 cards.

I never know what my passwords are, since they’re generated and I sometimes switch between usernames and emails and old usernames still exist for 10+ old games. So, I let the thing that keeps track of that let me know and if that screws up, it has backups everywhere. Somewhere is a journal with stuff hand written so when I die someone can get in, level my character, tell people I’m dead, etc.

Not so much

and to make matters worse, most older mmo systems for accounts are really archaic and obtuse.

Different account name, different login name, different forum name, different support login info.

I can’t remember what day it is much less account details, but like other respondents use a password app. I run regular backups of the important stuff on my computer, and have off-site backups in a safe deposit box for really important stuff, including account info for games.

Practically flawless since I keep a password book with all account details I’ve ever had since 2002 when I first started playing online games.

I did lose an email address after switching cable providers back when that was a thing which has caused me some problems, especially with NCSoft and my original Lineage 2 accounts.

I lost access to my WOW accounts after tethering them all to some sort of hard token they were promoting back around 2010, as at some point I lost the hard token.

I probably could have recovered them somehow, but since I never went back after Cata it didn’t matter.

I use LastPass. I used it login to MO to make this post. I’d be in trouble without it or something similar.

Yeah, I rely on Last Pass a lot these days, God forbid I should ever lose or forget the Master password as I already used up the one lifetime allotted recovery having forgotten it not long after starting as I had not written it down anywhere (at their advice I might add)

It’s in the password book now, just well hidden in the jumble in a cryptic form it would take a team of Russian code breakers to resolve.
