Appeal for Uplay Game Logins and a Win10 rant

Postby cjleeagain » Sep 16 2020, 17:50

Hi Everyone

I have been away for quite a while. I'm afraid the H7 disappointment was more than I could bear, and I just lost interest.

Recently I ran into a problem, so this post is to request or appeal for H7 and H6 logins. Basically I have lost my Ubisoft account, and don't know how to retrieve it. So if any of you have a Uplay account that you don't want anymore, and want to give away your logins, I would be thankful!

I would like to play some H6 and H7 again, although not so desperately that I would pay Ubisoft any more money.

[More follows]

Now let me do my anti-Win10 rant.

I am really fed up with Windows updates being forced on us. Updates have screwed me over more times than I can count. Nowadays I use LibreOffice because I can't trust Windows updates not to screw over my Windows office. Imagine - I pay good money for a software that gets screwed over by updates. Ever since I switched to Open Office, and then LibreOffice, I have had ZERO update problems.

Recently I had a Windows update that totally destroyed the functionality of my Windows 10. I spent like 24 hours trying to fix, and eventually reinstalled Windows.

In the meantime I found that I had lost all my Gmail passwords. I don't know how it happened. I did back up my Google Chrome, and I do have many (but not all) site passwords. Such as the login name and password to this site, which frankly I don't remember thanks to the use of auto login.

So I have a problem. I don't have any of my Google accounts on this computer anymore. I lost both the account names and the passwords.

Now some of you may think, this is crazy. I don't even remember my own email address?

Well, I definitely remember the names of email addresses that I use most often. But for business purposes, I created a bunch of email addresses over time. I would use a new email address (and google drive) for a major project with a client, and then create a new email address with new google drive for another big client, and so on. I did all these so that I don't accidentally send or share the wrong information. A big client will have multiple contacts so it's easy to make a mistake.

Then after a project was over, I would be left with an email account that is unused. So I use my excess email accounts to play games. This recent Win10 debacle wiped out both my Uplay account info, and my Blizzard info. I don't remember which email account I had used to register, I don't remember my login names, and I don't remember my passwords, and I certainly don't remember most of my old email addresses and the login names to these addresses either, so I couldn't go through my email addresses trying everyone out for luck. I did write these things down, but my records are incomplete and some of my registered phone numbers are no longer in use, so I can't even pass the 2-factor authentication with SMS sent to phone. Both my uplay and Blizzard accounts are old so they're probably linked to emails that became inactive many years ago.

Anyway, if anyone has an unused login he doesn't mind letting me have, do PM me! I don't come to this forum often nowadays, but I promise I will check my messages every month at least!

There is one thing I don't understand also, about the most recent Win10 update.

I assume this update is causing most of my problems, of course.

I did save passwords, and re-loaded the saved passwords, and I can see in Google Chrome that there are indeed many passwords.

But I still have to do fresh logins for a number of sites. This is generally not a problem since these are sites I visit frequently, not like the gaming sites that I haven't visited in years. but it is irritating to have to do all that when I was window-shopping and wanted quick access to a dozen sites.

Does this have something to do with cookies being lost?

Hello, cjlee, what's up? :D

So, W10 is making your life a pain. Well, I have to endure it to use my graphical apps which can only be installed on this instalment. However, I sort of got used to it by now, even when it simply gets edgy. Right now, my Steam is odd since last update, but I won't try to figure out why.

Regarding Uplay, I do have one, although it's been a while since I last logged in. I'll check that later and see what we can do about it, a'right? :)

And regarding you logins and passwords, I would suggest you to really have a small hidden notebook somewhere, write down what the new password and login are for, from where they came, for which purpose they are being used, and whenever they chance uses, you write that down too. That's the best way to keep track on technology, by not really trusting technology. :lol:

Hi Panda Tar, nice to hear from you too!

I just posted the results of my past year's gaming - some H4 walkthroughs. It's amazing that after so many years, people still don't post any H4 The Gathering Storm walkthroughs.

but sad to say, I have really grown old. And impatient. Gone are the days when I will replay a battle many times to get my preferred result. I remember I finished The Gathering Storm on Championship for nearly all the campaigns except for Dogwoggle's (I am really bad at barbarian). But I can't do that anymore!

Anyway, I do have a small hidden notebook. Unfortunately, as time has passed, my small hidden notebook turned into a virtual notebook on my cell phone. And when I change cell phones, I find that these notes are not always passed on. So I have passwords that are quite old, on my physical notebook. I have passwords from the past 2 years, since that's the age of my Huawei phone. And I've lost passwords from the 2-10 year range.

But this does tell you something doesn't it? Time flies. I haven't touched my uplay account in a long time. I can't believe it. But I don't think I played H7 in 2019 at all. The only way to know is to read my previous posts to see if I mentioned H7 in any part of 2019.

But I'm not all that impatient to be hooked up with H7 and H6. Seriously, life has more important things now... sad to say, this awesome game has just gone down the tubes. The days when I would Heroes-game for 18 hours straight (H3 and H4) are completely over.

Nothing lasts forever, as they say. H6 and H7 were so out of my taste that I simply pretend they are not there. And all these mobile MM games are outrageous. H4 might not be reaaaaaally popular. Although some people are creating very good mods lately, in the wake of Equilibris or so, new line ups, and a plethora of other stuff. I haven't tested them yet, though.

I don't remember the last time I got Uplay running, perhaps to add a free game copy, or something, 2018 or 2019. Need to install on my PC to try some passwords. Then I change it to something easy to use for you later.

Here: https://keepass.info/

Now you only have to remember 1 password.

Also, you can check your passwords in Chrome as long as you have your win logon password. It's somewhere on this page: https://support.google.com/chrome/answe ... ktop&hl=en

And you can get your Blizz account back with ether a security question (that's how i did it when i finally remembered the answer), or by sending in a photo ID if u used your real name.

I haven't heard of keepass, but definitely that sounds interesting! Open Source is more important than anything, because if its proprietary source, who knows if the maker himself is into stealing passwords!

Blizzard I don't care that much. I've played it a lot, but am over the age when I can play RTS and expect not to be beaten by kids young enough to be my grandchildren. Its not that big a loss.

Problem is, I never used my real name, I don't remember my Blizz email, login name or password. Were I 18 years old, I could not imagine not gaming, so I would always be in contact with the information.

Right now I haven't touched my Blizzard account for almost 4 years (prepaid for Legacy of the Void, finished all campaigns by August 2016, got to about 66% of all achievements and decided I had enough by Nov 2016.) I can't even remember the in-game name I used. A friend of mine supplied his account, but it was paid up to only HOTS (Heart of the Swarm). I actually like playing Protoss more than Zerg because Protoss requires more brainpower/ more strategy.

Keepass is a bliss. It supports directories, double click to copy username and pass, global search.

Just differ from Lastpass which is the same but in a cloud.

KeePass is great. I use it at work, but I also include my personal passwords as well. I prefer to keep my passwords offline.
I'm on Steam and Xbox Live.
