I got chain iced few months back, this is no joke, literally lost over 40 accounts.
Shall I say "Proxies! Proxies! Proxies!"
I logged in one day and found a few frozen, then a few hours later, a few more, and noticed a pattern,
....... realizing what they were doing and I had enough time to create a new account through a proxy, then transfer everything in the safest way possible. I managed to salvage a ton of Draik MP, and all my Paint Brushes, along with a few rarities. Never again... please!
I was stubborn and was the one to say, "Eh, I don't need proxies, I just play smarter." Obviously not, so lesson learned. That's when I began following guides and people through HB and Codex. It's easier to learn from everyone's mistakes then to figure each of them out personally. So thanks to Forums and Trade sites such as this.
