    Greetings,

    On 7/4/2019 we became aware that approximately 54 accounts had been broken into in an attempt to steal credits and hand them out to players in the game. The majority of these accounts have not been touched in months, and in some cases years. In total, 1,075,521,761 credits were stolen from these accounts.In an effort to stop this, we locked these accounts as pending investigation to ensure we could stop this action from happening, and give these players the opportunity to change their passwords after reaching out to us.

    We are starting the process now to return the credits to the original accounts, change the passwords, and unlock the accounts. If you haven't already, please file a ticket here: https://swglegends.com/forums/forumd...ispute-Tickets and reach out to us via Discord so we can begin the reversals.

    We also strongly recommend that everyone changes your password. We recommend (at a minimum) at least 12 characters, and it should contain at least one capitial, one lowercase, one special character, and one number. We would also stay away from using common words, phrases, etc... We know you are all grown ups, but it never hurts to be vigilant.

    We apologize for any inconvenience,

    SWG:Legends Staff

    Mine was one of the accounts that was suspected as compromised. I didn't lose anything but I had a very complex password. 12 characters upper case lower case 2 numbers 2 special characters. That doesn't really mean much though since I don't know if the actually compromised mine or even attempted. Great job to the staff that worked hard to recover everyone else's stuff and get us all back up and running.
