Account removal

0

So, I want to remove this account since I don't have a game and I don't think I'll buy it since I'm not sure that I have time for it. I already found that I should write to admin@faforever.com but what will happen with my nickname? What if after some time I'll come back will I be able to create account with same nickname?

The nickname gets freed and can be taken by anybody in the meantime. If you come back, it might be taken by someone else.

Why don't just leave your account here? All we have is your email and an IP address. We're not sending out any emails except if we send out changes on Terms of Service which we did once in the last 10 years.

Plus you keep me or Sheikah from the hassle of scrubbing through the database and manually removing you.

@brutus5000 thx for answer.

You see, there is a chance that I'll never come back and I don't want to leave accounts which I won't use. I used to have a ton of them and one site got hijacked. From then I only use password generator and delete every useless account. Just in case.

Besides, I don't need to remove account on forum, do I?

The forum account is the same as your FAF account. So it gets deleted as well when deletion is requested.

I wrote an e-main 2 days ago, still no answer.

Deletion requests are handled manually so may take some time to actually delete an account from a request. Also no response is really given the account will just be deleted.

@sheikah okay, I thought there would be some questions to confirm ownership or alert that account would be deleted.

Ownership is confirmed by sending the request from the email that owns the account.
