Following Up with Support After Submitting a Support Request Ticket

When you fill out the "Submit a ticket" form, you will be sent a confirmation message that might also contain some information based on the support fields you selected when filling out the form. Be sure to carefully read this email and follow any directions in it. To reply to support emails: first, your email's subject line will be along the lines of "Ticket # 24001 -##### - Turbine Customer Support". Please do not modify or remove that information, since it is how our system tracks your replies in the ticket you have opened. (If the information is edited, we will still receive the reply, but response time can be affected).

Also, these emails will be coming from "accountsupport@turbine.com". After sending in a ticket request, make sure that you log into your email provider's website to check their spam/junk mail folders just in case. They might erroneously flag these messages as such, and usually will not let an external email program or a cell phone download or view these messages. Adding that address to your email provider's "safe senders" list as well as your address book/contacts list should prevent future messages being flagged this way.

Please be sure to add the email addresses 'no-reply@turbine.com' and 'newsletter@emails.turbine.com ' to your address book or 'Safe Senders' list. Emails for recovering your username and password, and about account changes, come from 'newsletter@emails.turbine.com '. Store confirmation emails come from 'no-reply@turbine.com'. Adding these emails to your contacts list will prevent them from being blocked as Spam by your service provider, or lost in your Spam/Junk folder.

Tracking a Support Request Ticket

It is possible to track a ticket submitted to In-Game Support. However, it is not currently possible to track a ticket submitted through support.turbine.com. All tickets are handled in the order in which they are received, and will be processed as quickly as possible.
