...and everytime I try (once every few weeks to check content progress) I am denied with some obscure reason.

Firstly for 'suspicious activity on my account' due to the simple fact my ip occasionally changes.. so whatever. I follow the link it supplied me and changed my password via the link emailed to me by SE. I go to login again and now I get; "your ID or password is incorrect". I figure "ok, I've just changed it I'll wait an hour or so and try again"... to no avail.

So I change it again; "your ID or password is incorrect". I wait a few hours and try again; "you're ID or password is incorrect".

My ID has been the same in pretty much anything I ever do online. I have used it to login to FFXIV numerous times over the past months and have never changed it.

I also think it is an unbearably cheap shot by SE trying to force the 'security token' on people under the guise of 'trying to protect your account'.

Anyone else facing a similar situation to this?

I don't think its a cheap shot trying to get people to buy the token. More and more games are using one form of security. Most games that don't are having trouble like big time trouble since all they are doing now is dealing with hack cases. Plus the token is bloody cheap, and for those who haven't bought the game they can still get the collectors edition dirt cheap that comes with game+token.

Back on topic why don't you use the Forgot your ID or password feature they have on their website??

Thats kinda of strange cause I just changed my password without trouble. I even created a fake account and tested it and password change worked. You are going here https://secure.square-enix.com/account/app/svc/Login?cont=account to change your info right?

This is just SE telling you that they don't want your money. Blizzard, however, can't get enough. And it shows with how they treat their player base.

Yeah, it does show with how they treat their player base - with ever-increasing amounts of $20 pets and vehicles that put to shame almost anything you can get by actually playing the game! :D
