Overwatch 2 - Everything You Need To Know

Well, maybe not $40,000, but some players of Warhammer: Age of Reckoning have had their billing accounts attacked with up to $500+ coming out in $16 increments. The real danger of course, is account keeping fees, overdrawn fees and the usual spread of already unfair banking charges these guys will accrue as a result.

The official Warhammer: Age of Reckoning forums are ablaze with people reporting the problem, though the team are quickly trying to resolve it.
We absolutely will reverse all erroneous charges and work with you to resolve any outstanding issues. This process may take several days depending on your bank and our vendors time to process the request.
Have any AusGamers readers come across the same situation? If so, drop us a line in the Comments section.

Wow, this is pretty much the nail in the coffin for WAR.

I really can't see any current subscribers wanting to risk a problem like this again, and it's sure to scare away potential players. Add in the fact that the WAR player base is already small, there's no real way they could save this game

This is why I refuse to use direct debit for just about everything.

You'd think that'd be the case but nope, gamers need their games and f*** ups be damned.

edit: Also, misleading thread title. I demand thread deletage.

Iv had a few guildies in War get hit by this, So many people are worried since mythic has said nothing to us about if these charges will keep happening or if they have stoped.

Aion had a problem for a while where unscrupulous individuals were logging into deactivated accounts and stripping all the items and money (so if you came back after not playing for a month or something, all your characters stuff was gone). Dunno if it still happens, for all I know this never got fixed.

This is so much worse though, a compromised billing system is pretty damaging to any online enterprise reputation wise - no one likes getting jerked around when it comes to their real money.

Sounds like the scourge of every popular MMO. Basically a common occurrence in WoW. There was a massive wave of this when Blizzard forced everyone to convert their accounts to battle.net accounts, there must have been some sort of security hole or something because people who didnt even play the new expansion had their accounts stripped. (yes the hackers bothered to sub 1 month on the account, because basically any account has more than $16usd worth of value in them).

How they got their username (email) or even their password is weird because these accounts hadn't been logged on for over 6+ months.
