You seem to have missed a slash there with the italics.

these guys seem to be diablo players, they said non-mmo games, which rules out WoW.. so either starcraft 2 or diablo. 99% they diablo players. grumpy of how crap the game is me thinks :-) IMHO

Due to the fact that this stems from thier accounts getting hacked - I don't think the gold farmers are interested in screwing with your SC2 ranking - so ya D3 items + gold lost. So these retards think they can rage sue Blizzard?!

Life sucks, wear a helmet!

the authenticator can be used for free if you have an iPhone android or windows phone,

the device costs them money as well , I am quite sure they have made more money from monthly wow accounts then the one off authenticator device

I agree with Blizzard here the security breach has nothing to do with the auth devices

according to the RockPaperShotgun article about this story, there was some rumors that during the attacks they suffered the smartphone authenticators may have been "compromised". It also still amazes me that blizzard games have passwords that aren't case sensitive (at least certainly not for Diablo III, not too sure about other games)

Having said all of that, it's still a rubbish law suit and blizzard have more than enough money to throw at it to beat it.

Shouldn't players be suing Blizzard for not releasing a spiritual sequel to Diablo 2?
