So what happens when the hundreds of forgetful people lose/misplace their authenticators? Its a waste of time and extra hassel for people who arent stupid enough to give away their passwords. Having the authenticator be mandatory would A: Lose blizzard profit from selling authenticators, and they would lose extra money on top of that because now they would just be giving them away, so you would either see a raise in the monthly fee, or blizzard would do an economically stupid move, and B: you would have just as many issues of people losing their authenticators/ breaking them, as you would with account hackers, but this is a harder problem to fix because now you need to verify if the person is really who they say they are, plus all they hackers would find away around it eventually like they always do.
