2FA and new report system!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

In tomorrow's patch, we will be adding 2FA and reintroducing a new advanced report system. To see the patch notes for tomorrow, you can find them here!

 

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

 

New to this version is an additional layer of security to better protect you and your account. Two forms of identifying information will ensure you are positively authenticated and protected from malicious actors. Using an additional (yet optional) means to verify your identity will ensure you have total control over your account.

 

TO USE: To take advantage of this feature, simply log-in to your account on the Gamers First site (https://www.gamersfirst.com/account/), from the main account page, activate TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION and follow the required steps to secure your account. You will need to use an authentication tool like Google Authenticator App to complete the set-up.

For additional info on how to set-up an authentication tool, follow this LINK.

 

Reporting

We take the wellbeing of our community seriously so we are introducing a new means to flag those that abuse the service or fellow players. With the new Reporting feature, simply type /Report in the in-game command line to flag a player or scenario that needs our attention.

 

TO USE: There are two easy ways to initiate the feature: 1) Select Report Player from the main menu or 2) type /Report or /Report (Player Name) in the command line to bring up the Reporting dialog pop-up and fill in additional info on the user or incident.

I look forward to the report being used improperly many times.

 

I assume the new report still has the old report system function of varying importance; where someone who reports a lot has their reports become less 'important' and vice versa.

APB community abusing things? No. Never. 

 

That said I'm kinda happy about this. Might at least let them investigate problematic players significantly faster with any luck. Have to see how it plays out.

Thank you!

Hopefully this will make reoccurring rule breakers a less common sights

 

-edit-

I do feel sorry for customer service when over three quarters of reports are probably just going to be distressed players that had a bad play.

@Lixil If there are screenshots or recordings to include do they need to be sent with a separate ticket or need to be uploaded and links given in the report (like from imgur, youtube, etc)?

Depending on how many 13 year olds get gg'd and cry about it, I may have to.

That would bring more people crying and me setting up "no /report" to send.

I wish 2FA to be mobile verification 

It is! Download the Google Authenticator on your phone and go through the 2FA setup that way. I am using 2FA via my phone and it works just fine.

Nah, I meant, something like in csgo. It forces you to attach mobile and if you get banned on your account, you need to get a new phone number to play the game again
