  1. As far as I know it has not been resolved yet. I will send them this, thanks a bunch for the suggestion! :)

  2. Has anyone been able to migrate their legacy MC accounts? That's what mine is, so I'm just waiting for some kind of news about that.
  3. Are all the capes the same? I suppose they are. It would be nice if they were different based on when the account was created for instance. Or something fun. But, I don't think being creative and fun is in Microsoft's DNA.
  4. It is strangely easy to do this. I think my brother said he got his associated e-mail changed without any proof beyond knowing the old e-mail address for the account.
  5. So I'm not the only one after all. :D
  6. Minecraft account gang lets goooo

  7. I got the option to migrate! I was also able to close it, though, and did. I'm still hesitant. I'm not sure why, as it is unlikely that they will not stick to their word, meaning that I will have to do it if I want to sustain my ability to play Minecraft. Maybe I should try migrating my alt first.

  8. It's a pretty painless process. As long as you have access to the email associated with the Minecraft account. You click migrate and get a code to the email and then create a password for the microsoft login which will deactivate your Mojang login upon completion. After all this you get a cape like the other thousands of people who migrated.

    I do have to say that if you haven't logged in to the launcher for a bit and try to log in. That the microsft log in account will say the account has been locked. However you can have a code sent to the email or phone messaging and it'll unlock the account right away. It's just that 2 factor authorization at work.. (At least that's been my experience.)

  9. I don't have a Mojang login, though, except on my alt.

  10. It's not painless. I know someone who tried to migrate her two accounts and now she can only play in demo mode
  11. I lost my w33h account. It's in limbo between mojang and microsoft :p
  12. Sorry to hear that. I guess I haven't had some of the issues others have had with migrating. How'd that occur?

    How so?

  15. Dang. No way to do alternate accounts without a new email still, right?
  16. I guess I should play on my secret alt account before it can no longer play after March.. need to empty all the vaults and give myself perms for each smp so I need to call staff every time I need to break a block at my outposts.. lol

    Maybe even drop a few heads and do a reveal and auction the heads off after the migration end date and can no longer use the account.
  17. Alternate accounts? I think you've always been able to have alternate accounts with one email. Just write the address differently.
    What does that have to do with the matter at hand, though?
  18. Why not migrate it?

  19. The account can’t be migrated because the school email that was used has been deleted. The school has a whole new email system so the old system had been deleted. I did contact the school IT department and they said the old system email couldn’t be reactivated or any information be extracted. I did have a chance back before they switched systems but I didn’t grab any Minecraft emails because it was switched before any talk of account migration.

  20. It seems like there are ways for Mojang to change your email for you. Have you looked into this?
    Is this account currently a Minecraft account or a Mojang account?
