I was hacked, apparently the hack was traced to China, but the trace was unable to distinguish any "rogue" owner from there, and perhaps the trace may even be a misleading source, and may not even originate from China, so obviously hackers are quite resourceful. Blizzard took care of the situation very promptly and has a dedicated team that continues to thwart hackers 24/7 ...in fact when I turned in a ticket, as I found myself standing in Orgrimmar with only a white shirt and a tabbard on, one backpack and 20 silver, it has a rather violating feel to it. I felt like'a hooker dropped off at the curb in fron'a Jerry Springer's green room, not that I've been there! /looks around... I have been in a tech support role, and I'll wager the anti-hack team works the hardest out of all of the tech support branches, even though i would imagine regular phone tech support remains horrifically overwhelmed, lolz ...I could only imagine how hard the ppl who work on us that HAVE been hacked and keeping the majority that haven't, from it ever occurring. I have nothing but good to say about the way Blizzard takes care of ppl who have been hacked. Furthermore, they offered me a free authenticator key-chain beCAUSE of what happened and in lieu of the fact I have no cell phone to be able to receive this service for free.You may say what you will about Blizzard, and I agree on most of it lol...cuz they R bigger than their britches these days but only because of supply and demand, it's our fault they hit the stock bell, not theirs lol...although they are the ones who invented the game, we all must remember that without it's players, and their input from patch after patch and all of the beta testers, blizzard would not be blizzard as it is today. I believe we earned our right to certain changes, but blizzard is still boss, and like ghostcrawler, you ain't gonna kill it, EVER. we love this game and although we think all these changes should be made here and there, I feel as long as they are keeping our accounts safe, it's as good as saving our Identity, as in identity theft. there is no difference and blizzard works hard, but thieves work harder, so it's up to all of us to do our part, after all, this ain't no game made in friggin China ok?...it's made by diverse raced americans who love gaming, and our demand for their product skyrocketed and we all wish we could do that. jus' sayin' I work in america and i spend my money here too, but what I do find, well disturbing is that the key-chains are made in: where? uhhh hn u guessed it. ;) hmmmmm.
