I have to uninstall all of my previous versions of EA racing games, such as Hot Pursuit & Shift because EA change my master id file from Snnydv1970 to TGreenMonster so Snnydv1970 doesn't exist anymore and I would have to start my career all over again.. So I am sure that many of you have the same problem and we are not able to know who is who anymore, So I am creating a list of racers so we can find one another again and we can start racing this new version of Shift 2,
Please add your name to this list on what name you are using for a racing name in Shift 2 so we know who is who and what name everyone is now using ..Every week I will edit the list and pull all the names to the bottom of the list so you don't have to scroll through pages and pages to find and old friends you use to race with.. I am hoping that many of my old racing buddy from Shift 1 will post here with there new names on who they are racing under these are names I am looking for, BulldogRGBG, Heinrick71, Micrak, Kapsch, Joezkurtz1986, Tommy 993, Alexbolt, TomasT, user0815, uwewienaDEU, ZoZo00001, without verifing you self to me I am not adding you as a friend, because I received 40 or more request in the passed two days I have no clue on who is who
mine is now rcgldr, same as the personas I use. EA didn't "change" my master id, but instead deleted it. Then I logged in to Shift 2 and it prompted me to enter a new master id, which accomplishes the same thing as getting the master id changed.
Not sure when or if I'll go online. I went online and only ran 2 career events to get an entry into the Shift 2 database. I'm mostly testing using saves where I've never logged in.
I have to uninstall all of my previous versions of EA racing games, such as Hot Pursuit & Shift.
I don't know about Hot Pursuit 2010, but Shift 1 doesn't use the ea master id. It uses one or more personas you create using your EA new account that uses email to login. Undercover uses the same database as Shift (at least for managing personas).
If EA also deleted one of the personas, you can just create it again, which may reset your online stats, but won't affect your career progress. Your win / loss stats are kept in the savefile (and they can be editted to any values you want with a trainer), but your lap records are kept online so you may end up seeing duplicates over time if you create a new persona. I keep backups of my saves, so if one gets messed up, I can just restore. For Shift I turned off auto-save and each time I log in my win/loss stats get reset, but not my lap times or my dnf percentage.
To check your EA (master) ID on your new account and your personas, log into:
There is also this login for a new account which also shows your ea id and 3 of your personas, as well as a list of games you create under "my games". This is a list you create and doesn't mean you actually own the games.
If you played NFS Prostreet or an earlier NFS game, or Crysis, or any game before 2008, you'll also have a old account that you log into using username instead of password. This can get confusign since both accounts may have the same email and personas. I changed the email on my old account to reduce confusion.
To see your classic user name account (which is a separate account). There are two paths, go to this link, which brings up the "classic account" brown and white web pages instead of the blue and white web pages.
Then login using a username (persona or screen name), then click on my account or my games. You'll get another login in prompt (blue and white) and possible a third prompt (brown and white) asking to reenter password. You end up at this page:
If you click on my games, you'll get a list of old games you actually registered, along with their install keys, which will look like this but with real keys instead of the X's I photoshopped onto the picture:
NFS Prostreet and older NFS games uses the older type username account. There are also multiple databases to keep track of the stats for each game, some of which are shared between a pair of games. This goes back to Underground 2 which is no longer online, but Underground 2 and Most Wanted share the same database, except that Undergrond 2 supported 3 personas and allowed you to create / delete them. Most Wanted only uses 1 persona, not sure of how it picked which one to use, and you could delete and create personas in Most Wanted, but nothing truly got deleted, unless you asked ea support to delete the persona, and I wouldn't know which one to specify since there are semi-duplicates (needforspeed.com, needforspeedpc, classicscreenname, ...)
summary of persona databases and the games that share them
Hot Pursuit 2 - Gamespy, still working last I read Underground 1 - don't know, servers shut down 2006 Underground 2 + Most Wanted - username database Carbon - username database Prostreet - username database
Undercover + Shift 1 - email database
Hot Pursuit 2010 - autolog - I'm guessing ea master id?
.. I am hoping that many of my old racing buddy from Shift 1 will post here with there new names on who they are racing under these are names I am looking for, BulldogRGBG, Heinrick71, Micrak, Kapschi, Joezkurtz1986, Tommy 993, Alexbolt, TomasT, user0815, uwewienaDEU, ZoZo00001
Note that once you add one friend, you can see that persons friends list and send out friend requests, eliminating the need to remember all the names shown here. I had a friends request from Dimitrkhoz, and used his list to add the others.

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): Haven't it been quite dead for a while now? It's really a shame, as back when this was awesome place to hang out, and, well. I did stop being that active here, as unfortunatelly I kind of lost my love towards Need For Speed games. It's a shame, really...

CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:36 GMT
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:53 GMT
Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
