I reset my password recently because of the Bioware hack and when I signed into my EA account it asked me to enter a Master ID. I've tried numerous different combinations of letters, words and symbols and none of them are vaild or all of them are in use (highly unlikely). How do I enter a valid Master ID?

Hi there.

Your master ID should be the e-mail that you've used to register here on the forums.

It's sorted now. I appears my Gamertag was set as the Master ID when I posted this message.

I was brought here by the Bioware e-mail, too. I used my psn name, used my e-mail account name, my nick from Bioware-EA account. All of them were invalid. Tried to come up with couple of more things and names and I still don't have any idea how a proper Master ID should look like... Can we have more directions than the message saying "invalid or in use"?

I've got the same problem. Can't use my e-mail either, because there is a limit of 16 digits to set a Master-ID. I don't even know what the master ID is for... And of course how to get one. Why isn't this * explained anywhere?

Doesn't work for me either. Every single master ID I type in is invalid. Good job. Can't play Battlefield because of that.

Yeah why doesnt it say anywhere to use your email address? I tried about 50 different things, even random characters and it kept saying invalid or taken. Why cant it just say "USE THE EMAIL ADDRESS YOU SIGNED UP WITH" to save us all some time?

Same problem here, this is insanely ridiculous to me. I tried about 50 different combination of letters and numbers they are ALL invalid. EVEN the random ones like "lieqkljfa".

Are you really serious about this?

After a few random punches on my keyboard, now look at my PERMANENT master ID ... FKDLAJFKDLA ?? This is awfully absurd!!

The error message is complete rubbish and useless. Please make it more useful by suggesting WHAT IS VALID!! That can save us a lot of time!

Yeah.. i dont get this.. thought i'd go through all this now before the BF3 release..

What are the valid characters for the ID. Im trying my hardest to have something i can live with but the page isn't helping me very much

I would like to have what i've always had but it says it's either invalid or taken, i put in underscores and the same message etc..

Does it allow Underscores, or minus signes, equals signs etc.. does it have to have a number in it because like i said, every combo on my name isn't working
