In my house my brother and I both play wow on the same home network, on different pcs.
Just now upon loggin on his account had been locked with the reason " We have noticed a change in your acces pattern ."
First, this reason seems fishy to me anyway, since our computers are both secure and virus free and so are our email, i personaly know since i have maintained the software and security on both for the past 3 years.
Since both of my computers are on the same home network, in the same house, id expect to be able to play on either of them freely, without worrying about stupid things as IP addresses assigned by my router.
The ONLY variance on the " Suspicious " account activity, was that he logged into wow, on MY second computer, in the same house, under the same home network - just to show some newly aquired gear and achievments ; that only lasted a few mins.
So - Just because the second WoW account of my household, logged into a different computer, on the same network add you, it was flagged due to a " suspicious change in account play "?
Needless to say the solution was just a password change and we are currently playing together again. But in the future, i would like to know if I am locked into my ip address and computer. Because honestly if you look at the accounts accessed through my IP, you will see a few actually due to friends playin wow with me, here at home. And never once did my friends accounts have the suspicious change in access pattern junk.
I dont mean to sound rude or short, im genuinly curious.
