They themselves bring up the example of the Adobe Flash vulnerability - show me one person who hasn't got flash installed with his browser. That is not a malware or suspicious software. All in all, they should be the ones making the product as safe as possible. If they gotta add authenticator to every bnet account to make it so then they should do it. Or if they intend to keep it optional, notify the user at every step they take without the authenticator that they are vulnerable and do so only at own risk.
But first just simply stop preaching it as mandatory while they keep offering it as optional.
Perhaps you should try reading it again.
Sorry, I thought you meant the Blizzard mobile authenticator or physical one, not the non-blizzard ones. They acknowledged that the non-blizzard ones have been hacked in rare circumstances, which of course were not specifically made for Blizzard games, so I don't understand your point.

Again, my apologizes, so the authenticator was the blizz one, but, like they said, the computer was a trojan/malware mess. All evidence points to personal responsibility when it comes to account security. The point is that it is not an issue on blizzard's end, its an issue on the players end to combat the relentlessly ruthless hackers and we have the tools to do it. Now I wan't paying too much attention pre-launch to see if Blizz warned D3 players adequately about account security. A lot of players aren't wow players and don't know how these hackers work, so maybe they should have warned these people better. Regardless, the Blizzard servers aren't compromised, individual's computers are. So until there's a program that has Ghostcrawler's head pop up with a warning whenever one does something that may compromise their security, the onus is on the player, not the game.
The music is beautiful. Which is not to imply that previous World of Warcraft music is not - but there is something to be said for freshness.
I have it looped right now while doing other activities. <3

Oh, and the warlock trolling the mailbox was hilarious. I am almost seriously tempted to level my warlock now.
I looked at the warlock trolling the mailbox and I was reminded of all the times it has been nearly impossible to access the mailbox or a quest giver because of someone sitting on it on their mammoth or other huge mount. Hope the locks only do this in Ogrimmar or Stormwind where other mailboxes are readily available.
I'll never understand buying gold. The whole point of a game is achievement. Its fun because you overcome and achieve. If you just slap down your credit card to "have" instead of "achieve", you've just defeated that purpose. Of course, that is the typical American mindset.
ololo my warlock just pwn all
Totally agree with this.No single set yet that looks good. :S
Blizz, hire some of the D3 art designers!!!
If you have the physical or mobile authenticator (both of which major banks use and charge $30+ for) the chances of you being compromised are very, very small. I've personally examined the MSInfo files of nearly all of the handful of WoW players who have actually been compromised through an authenticator, and the sheer number of backdoor programs and other malware on their systems has been mind boggling.That doesn't sound right...I've been a computer tech for a long time, and I've never had a single malicious security breach on any of my computers that I'm aware of, but I attached one of the very first batches of physical authenticators to my account. Why? Because no matter how good I am, sooner or later they were going to get me. But now, they can't.
Why don't they just give us the horns and mask and remove the hat.
