Guild Wars 2 players who have not changed their passwords since September 2012 will be required to do so on February 7. In a blog post, ArenaNet explained that a system of blacklisting certain passwords used in past hacking attempts was introduced in September, and has been so successful that it wants everyone to benefit. If you’re using ageing login details, head over to the MMORPG’s account management site to change your password – or just wait for Thursday, when you will be prompted to switch things up or be barred from logging in.
