It shouldn't be up to the players who PAID FOR THE GAME and then PAID TO PLAY THE GAME to keep their account from being hacked like this. Yes, some people are stupid and give out their information, but like I said before, I haven't played in over a year and my account got hacked just 2 months ago.


Yes it is.

This is like blaming the police when you leave your wallet on the counter and it gets stolen.

There was a huge uproar when we were forced to change our account names to valid emails because it makes it just that much easier to get hacked. It was just one more bad idea in a laundry list of many

I've played on and off for years without an authenticator. I quit for good a little bit after Cata came out, my account got hacked 2 months ago. My friend who still plays said he saw me on and wasn't responding.

It's complete bull**** that you should need to pay money for a little device that keeps your account safe


Seems to me you brought it on yourself.

If anybody's personal information was stolen as a result of security breaches that Blizzard covered up, Blizzard would've been sued long ago. This isn't to say that they haven't been hacked before, but nobody was hurt very much by it.


No, because if that happened they are required by federal laws to disclose it.

That's funny. Blizzard sent me a free authenticator when my WoW account got hacked.


I was sent a free authenticator when I dinged level 85 on my 4th alt. What is your point?

Holy god.

You should have seen the D3 board at launch. You couldn't take a step without running into a tin foil hat.


Those Diablo guys are really whiny

"There was a huge uproar when we were forced to change our account names to valid emails because it makes it just that much easier to get hacked. It was just one more bad idea in a laundry list of many"

With as many fansites out there as there are that let you log in with just a username instead of an email address, people were just as susceptible to account comprmise for using the same logins everywhere as they are today logging in an email address. If the fansite gets hacked (fansites are much much less secure than Blizzard's servers) and login information gets stolen, they would have just tried those login names for the usernames for WoW accounts. No difference.

So... he's basically he's suing Blizzard cause he's an idiot. Wonder how far it'll go before it gets thrown out due to the dude's pure idiocy and lack of paying any kind of attention.




Way too much irony in one post to be serious.
