My friend's Launcher decided the game was up to date. His game didn't. He couldn't play. Minutes later, his launcher decided to completely reinstall/download Diablo 3 on another partition. After that, his game decided that his Hardcore character was DEAD!!!

I logged out together with him, in town. Trust me when I say his char shouldn't be dead. We both posted a ticket. Pray for us that we won't get a patronizing and apathetic "you've been warned before you started Hardcore mode" reply from Blizzard. He's the victim here. We both are since we only play together.

Fuck.

Also, nin is right - (internet security is what i do for a living), so many folks are not willing to take ownership of thier own internet security its fucking scarey.

Blizzard is responsible for the security of their own service. Yet people - like nin - twist the situation and blame the end user,

I said your brother was in charge of securing his own computer. Something he apparently doesn't know how to do, and something you apparently fail to grasp, despite it being pointed out repeatedly.

Wasn't posting at or about you or your said brother - but if you want my attention, let me know, there are more than enough points to make about your situation - er I mean your brother's situation - but nin took a pretty good chunk of it already.
It's pretty hard to believe such an inference was merely a coincidence. Also, why would I need to pretend it was my brother's issue if it was actually mine? I have nothing to gain from such a bizarre ruse. Good grief, I've entered the twilight zone where everybody seems to have departed any semblance of rationality or objectivity. I mean, just look at some of the bizarre conspiracy theories here - my brother managed to acquire Blizzard specific malware, that can bypass anti-virus software, from a porn site (an allegation which of itself is pure conjecture)? People are going out of their way to blame the victim and coming up with ever more elaborate scenarios to account for it.

Blizzard is responsible for the security of their own service. Yet people - like nin - twist the situation and blame the end user, despite equally high profile games like TF2 being unaffected. Somebody logging in from a different computer from a different location should have triggered additional security measures - an obvious one being to send an email that must be accessed in order to access the account (ala Steam). Blizzard fucked this up on its own.

You could have a doctorate in computer science and still fall victim. So in reality everyone could be at fault at some point. Just wait your turn.

Well when it does, I won't be blaming blizzard for it!


Zactly. The problem is we live in a society of people who always think they are the victim instead of the problem. Even when you show them they are the problem with facts and data, they will scream and kick that it is someone else's fault that they are an idiot.

Everyone thinks they are a snowflake.

I am so very, very delighted that I never apologized or took it back when I said your attitude took a turn for the worst "lately".

Seriously, man.. we understand you first and foremost should blame the hackers themselves. The question is, who after that? Is it hackers --> customer --> Blizzard, in your logic? Or is it maybe -- just maybe! -- Hackers --> Blizzard --> Customer? Be completely honest with yourself before again coming on here with that utter crap you're posting, xXBatmanXx.

I'm kinda sorry for flaming you like this, but I'm surprised you haven't been set on fire by the rest of the community yet. Everything you post lately is nothing if not bitter nonsense.

There. I said it. Had to get it off my chest. Blame the Italian blood.. -_-

Awesome going...
Right now I am thinking about getting a refund.

Yeah... Good luck with that......
Maybe I should get a refund on The Witcher 2 on Steam due to that clusterfuck with 8gb Patches when it first came out...

Oh wait... you cant....

Actually you can.
Read the User Agreement. 30 Days.
Prolly only counts for the digital download, but thats what I have.

Nope, looks like everyone can get a refund except the WoW drones. Coming directly from a Blizzard employee:

If you purchased the game, you can get it refunded as long as the receipt shows the purchase date in the last 30 days at the time a refund is requested. If the game was added to your account via the World of Warcraft Annual Pass there's nothing that can be refunded as it was never purchased.

For more information, please contact our Billing Department.

Billing representatives are on hand to take your call between 7am to 8pm Pacific Time, 7 days a week at 1-800-59-BLIZZARD (1-800-592-5499). Customers in Australia should call 1-800-041-378

Oh yes, how dare my brother pretend to be a victim when in fact we should be feeling sorry for Blizzard! How dare people expect to play the game without having their account stripped! Blame the victim. Blame the victim. Blame the victim. So you've been raped? Should have carried pepper spray!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Stupid woman! MUAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! How dare you pretend to be a victim! Bend over. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I guess I missed the part where Blue's News became the official Blizzard fansite. Did I miss out on the secret handshake too?

Not telling you was a favor actually.....unless your ignorance would like to hear it all, again? Get over yourself.

Wasn't talking about you or him. When I said forum expert types, I was talking about the people who blame the users but don't really know much more about the issue themselves. They just assume because they weren't hacked that the other person must have done something wrong.

We'll see, you won't know until it happens. Always easy to talk about what you would do when it happens to another. Shit, I'd call that line of thinking the True American Way.

Actually the way YOU are treating it is the stereotypical "American Way" mentality. nin is actually taking responsibility for his actions...you know...how America USED TO BE. And how MOST of us in here were taught....

Yep. But I still fall back on until it happens to you, you don't know how you will react. Get hacked and you are out a week at least with B.net. Call them and wait and then talk to their level of competence which will impress no doubt. How I am perceiving my stance is like the American Way, and yes his stance if he were to hold true in his hours of strife, he is taking the higher road, I do agree.

Now in terms of how we were taught... well the realities has always been dog eat dog and that hasn't lessened. You live by the rules you could be slowing yourself down vs those that don't. That is part of the issue Avg Joe Fair Wage vs Fastest Way to Make a Buck at any cost.

Back on point, like those that didn't get 3 RROD until late, they never understood the frustration of those that had it happen. They called people liars with the amount of returns some had. Then it happened to them and it was all the same reactions from them. Where as the rest of us had already been there done that, had the movie on BR.

Personally I don't care too much, if I have problems I'll weigh it out to see how I want to deal with it. All I know is I run superantispyware for malware and MSE for virus, they come up clean, that is all I am going to bother to know, less something blatantly happening. I mean really if you have to know more then that, it's a loser, the median consumer will be below what you need to know. To me things have gotten a lot better in general, B.net must be a victim of their own success.

Most people hacked probably have no idea how or even if their machine was hacked so asking them to take responsibility is a moot point. Do you yell at your girlfriend if her WoW account gets hacked? She probably clicked on a lolcat from some friend and got something without ever being slightly aware. Those are the kinds of people who buy Blizzard games, these are mass market products. Blizzard might as well just assume every user is stupid and force them to either use an authenticator or confirm login IP changes. It's a minor inconvenience that will save everyone involved a lot of time and money.

Well you could still blame Blizzard for making something so attractive to hackers. No one is desperately trying hack my Tiny Tower account.
I got an email the other day with someone trying to do a reset on my minecraft account, and I'm not blaming Notch, either...

Well that's silly, nothing of value tied to Minecraft accounts except the game itself which is pretty cheap. My comment was more about the decision to have the RMAH. Some have said that the idea was to take away the shadiness of the real money market for digital items by handling it officially... It looks like it just made the accounts that much more attractive for stealing. Had Notch decided to implement some Minecraft resource that was worth real money and tied to your account there'd be a huge explosion in account hacking as well.

I'm not saying the blame resides solely with anyone (except maybe the hackers themselves). Was more of a joke looking to blame Blizzard for something "Blame them for making a game (almost) everyone loves!"
