Apparently playing in public had some bug, that quitting in middle of game with random people, they could somehow hijack the account. I wouldnt know about that and frankly i dont care how they did it - i wasnt the only person to whom that had happened and it didnt have anything to do with passwords for example.
Which, even after a whole year of the game being released, was never proven do be the case. Yet another conspiracy theory. :p The less false information people spread, the better for all.
I wouldnt know about that. That seemed to be the census at time and frankly i lost interest in D3 after the Blitz support response.
For a fact the are better games to play with less hassle.
As a separate comment to earlier, my computer was fully updated win7, with up to date newest Symantec running, no silly emails nor all of as hang on pr0n sites or "search warez on shady torrent sites". Or even play Diablo on library computer. All the speculation is certainly fun until it happens to you and Blitz tells you cant get your stuff back because youve contacted them too many times or whatever.
If the damned authenticar is -must- then why it they didnt give one for free with the game?
That I definitely agree on, that was a very poor move on Blizzard's part.
Well, how about you code some global identifier then and get rich?
There's already a company available that provides that: Yubico
FYI, it works amazingly well. :)
Never heard, but thanks for the link - might read it just for fan if nothing else :)
The physical authenticator is free, you only pay for the shipping costs. Also, there is a digital, free one available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.
You know, i got my game in a box - why it wasnt in the box if its so necessary to play the game? Why i have to pay for shipping separately? ->> You include it in the damned game box if its necessary to safely play the game.
Also, not all of us own iOS, Android or Windows Phone. Well actually these days i do own Lumia 920, but those days i did not have access to mobile authenticator.
