Diablo III Hacking?

A bunch of threads on the Diablo III forums from players who've experienced unauthorized access to their accounts suggest their may be a security issue with the action/RPG sequel or that the game's future support of real-money auctions has attracted more hacking attempts than one would consider normal. The threads in question are: Ummm...all of my gold and items are gone, Hacked. GG Online Only Single Player DRM, Hacked with an authenticator, and The hacker found (with screenshot). Thanks nin.

Though, my one complaint so far is the horrible introduction for the boss of Act1. I mean really, with all the foreshadowing leading the player one way, you get to the transition and it tells you exactly who you're fighting. Then you get in the room and you have to listen to a cheesy goth Mad Moxxi wannabe introduce... THE BOSS. Again.

Really though, renaming the transition to 'The Boss' Lair' or something similar, then an initially pitch black room and just 3 key words would have made that particular event (which struck me as an obvious nod to the old school) SO. MUCH. BETTER.

That whole encounter was really stupid. He was great in D2 because he was a non-descript, relentless killer who once discovered would pursue you across the whole level. They turned him into a Dragon Age ogre with WoW-lite abilities and then did the forced cutscene intro for the people who pay who no attention to lore during the levels. Not that I expect high fantasy from a Blizzard game anyway, the story was pretty laughable but hopefully that's just a target age disparity thing.

It's hard to argue against the fact that their number of skill choices maps out well to gamepads though. In fact most of the interface will.

For the people unhappy with the performance of D3 Blizzard is actually allowing refunds. A friend of mine bought it and was pissed off at the constant latency problems and they gave him a full refund. I was surprised so I checked out the forums and other people have been getting them too. Really cool of them to do even if the problems are mostly of their own making.
