So there is a part of the game that you don't get access to unless an authenticator is involved? Sounds like getting screwed to me, especially when you consider this only became policy AFTER the games release. Parts of the game were taken away from you unless you met their NEW criteria.
I don't know or particularly care if its worthy of a class action suit, but them providing a solution is how I feel about the situation.

There is only one thing that 'requires' the authenticator the Real Money Auction House. You don't need to use the RMAH. YOu can simply use the normal gold auction house and that doesn't require an authenticator. So only one entirely optional, with an effective alternative, requires you to have the authentictor. You can play the entire game, go online with friends and strangers, use the gold auction house, and never touch an authenticator (assuming you have a good password policy and arent stupid enough to get phished) It's 'nice to have' for stupid people but its certainly not required to play the actual game itself in any way.
