May i start with introducing myself as LameSalad#(Numbers here)
Me here>>>>>> http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/LameSalad-6914/
PLEASE NOTE: **This is not my account.**
I'm currently using my roommates account to post this because of the lovely error 14404 message. (He is a legend for allowing me to do this on the condition i restrain my displeasure)
So here is my current situation... (I'll tell it in story format so it's at least mildly enjoyable to the readers)
I was having a wonderful time, doing the usual slaying of demons from day to day,
and slowly upping my characters weapons and play style. Joining my roommate during late nights and parts of our days off, castrating goblins for gold and repeatedly destroying mobs of minions which blocked our path. Twas a wonderful time we had, and we were happy waiting for the PVP action to arrive so we could then test our skills and might upon each other in a fight to the death scenario.
Along came an update, which we both knew would not contain PVP, but some other important patch that would hopefully improve the game which we enjoy playing.
("Bring on the updates," i stated unbeknown to me that i would spend the next few hours dealing with numerous battle.net pages trying to resolve my latest error message. (14404)
At that current time i received the message (error 14404) (There was a problem with the Authentication Module) Date at that time was (20/1/203) round 11pm (Australian time) Which has now become (downloading agreements) (28/01/2013) 1am.
I found a nice forum page which seemed to satisfy the masses. (20/1/203)
Which stated this following message.
"Change the server to another region, login, (you may be prompted to click things here) then logout, then login again back onto your original server region. (In my case America)
"Hooray i cheered inside my head." I thought i had THE
So i tried, and failed. Tried again, failed, then and again, changing regions, never actually having it authenticate my details without receiving (error 14404). >>>CONSTANTLY!!!<<<
Well then this is when my "fun"
So i had my account "Locked" due to strange login activity on my account. Which was the second time it had happened. (First time was my own fault for forgetting my password)
So i hopped over to battle.net knowing the procedure having already having gone through that already with my first "Lockout."
(After entering my details into the correct spaces)
I was sent an email from blizzard that allowed me to click a hyperlink to restore my account.
(this is the part that shot me down)
This time when i tried to resolve the issue through my e-mail hyperlink i had a nice little box pop up.
It was red, and it stated there was an error. Since it was on the battle.net site and not my actual d3 Launcher (therefore no error message number i can report) I popped back to my e-mail and tried to click the hyper link again...which concluded in the same message appearing...
OK so i must've had my login details correct to actually receive an e-mail fro blizzard.
I re entered my details and received another e-mail, with another failing little red box with an error i don't understand being there.
I had an epiphany (what if i allowed pop ups) Maybe that was the problem....
After disabling pop ups i still get that lovely little red error box, with my only choice being to re enter my details for a 3rd time and get once again another e-mail with a failing hyperlink.
So i decided id wait a week, sit it out, play some Xbox, you know those ancient console things with handheld controllers...
Got back on today to try again and still getting that same message, in not sure why, and therefore cannot even login to the forum through my own account.
Please Blizzard, help me out, i cant even use your automated system to restore my account...
Because of that lovely little red box.... Please, just restore my account cos it's not doing me any good here going slightly manic.
Sincerely from the gamer
P.s. I'm posting this onto each forum i find with info on error 14404 message. Including URL's attached below to which i have already posted this. In hopes i can have this issue resolved and continue on my quests slaying mobs of minions.
