    Not really, B.net doesnt show the name on the account IIRC, shows first but not last.
    Having the last name show p on the forums is a bit dumb...

    Put it this way, i didnt know the last name on one of my botting accounts, so i used the realID to find out!

    I find it hard to believe an account with an authenticator could be hacked

    their only avenue is to call and impersonate you to have the authenticator removed, to remove it from the bnet account you have to log in then know the number string in the first place

    Well, I'm on track to get my gear back, it all got escalated at around 4PM our time and got confirmation etc etc. So that's a good sign.

    Authenticator on the way, sucks WinMo hasn't got an authenticator :/

    I'm not saying that people with authenticators are being hacked, rather small mix of scenarios surrounding people having one.

    I have one myself but am yet to link it to my account.

    I remember reading on mmo-champ that there was one piece of malware which managed to intercept usernames, passwords _and_ the authenticator token, send all 3 off to some other site, and they'd use it straight away to do "something" and take something.

    Anyway, there are venues, they're just harder to get at.

    Sorry, I'd deleted instead of just removing the quote from your post. The rest were removed for rubbishing up the thread.

    It sounds like Dreadmaul lol (I have horde there). Rolled alliance there and it seems like a ghost town. I know alliance didnt get wg much but didnt realise it seemed so dead.

    Real ID is some FUCKED up shit.

    Blizzard have lost the fucking plot here. I guess this is what happens when you build a game this popular. You start to think you can do anything and people will suck it up.

    Idiots.

    I wonder if real name on the official forums will make it live.....
