    Just something to consider:
    Others in line have been asked to send additional information (it is policy to be sure to only allow access to the true account owner). Should that additional information not be attended to on a first-come, first-served basis?

    Opened up an alt account, paid for Path of Fire Ultimate for that account, and got banned the next day without even so much of creating a character. Sent in an anonymous ticket on Tuesday morning and I still haven't gotten a response/reason.

    Edit: bought the PoF Ultimates for both Accounts with the same credit card (mine)

  • Support could handle the tickets a lot more quickly if they would just call the client or a have a hotline for the easy fixes.

    My biggest issue with it honestly is the lack of communication. Their ticket system using email means there is no way to know if they received your email or not as you can't log in to their site and see your ticket and its status. Just an auto reply saying they received my email would be great. It would be even better if they could take 10 seconds and reply with something like "we got your email and just wanted to let you know it's going to be a few days before we can get to it." Not knowing what the heck is going on at all and having no idea of a time frame is very annoying.

    If you did not receive the near-immediate, automated response, check your spam/junk email folders, and/or whitelist all the ArenaNet/GuildWars2 addresses.
    You did use the web-form, and filled in your email address, yes?

    Yes, I got the auto response on my initial ticket submission. It's the subsequent replies, of which I have made 2, that I got no acknowledgement of. I read the support article on recovering an account and the information they would be looking for. I could not recall much of it when I initially submitted the ticket but I was able to discover some things, like the display name for instance, because my alt account was in one of the same guilds as the locked account.

    I sent that in a couple of days after my initial ticket and got no response. A few days later, when the GM finally contacted me, they asked for more information. Some of what they asked for were things that I had put in that follow up email. That makes me wonder if they ever got the follow up email or if they got the one I sent answering the GM's questions. As I said above, I can't log in to a website and see what my ticket looks like so I have no idea what is going on and it's frustrating to say the least.

    The CS Team neither reads nor responds to this thread.
    There may, or may not, be an update to this Sticky regarding response times returning to normal. (Probably not.)

    Agreed. It's quite baffling how you are unable to contact them directly in any way. You can't call them, chat with them and they don't respond to social media (tweets for example). When you're unable to access your account you can't ask something on the forum, and if you do they don't respond anyway.

    I mean, I would probably even pay for support like that, even though every other company does it for free.

  • Anecdotal evidence only for reference: my support ticket took 14 days from getting the automated response to an actual 1st response (and resolution). Happy with the outcome, but not the long wait, but since it was non-essential it doesn't bother me too much.
