Yes there is another "Security Flaw" topic, but this is unrelated and just coincidental that it happened just a few minutes ago :P
My account has been logged in all day, just sitting in a market and I was in the other room watching t.v.. BF was playing around with network (got a new cisco business router, loves tinkering w/e), and he reset the network. I was on macbook at the time, and yes the internet went out for about 5 minutes while he was ******** around.
Came back to the PC and had the "disconnected from server" pop up over my character in the market... to be expected. So I clicked OK, and it took me back to character selection... i clicked Kao and went right back in. Did NOT have to completely resign in with my SE account...
Every other MMO i have, takes you completely out when your internet goes out and you have to sign back in. For FFXIV not to do that makes me a bit nervous, I have the token on my account from XI but even with my internet out for a good 5 minutes, it bypassed that completely.
My AION account was hacked a while ago and the only AION site I ever went to aside from NC/official was Curse (deleted my account quickly after that and created a new one with a new email, no info etc.). Anyone know anything about internet security crap? Seems like an issue to me.
