@Handera: You obviously don't know what you're talking about. Allow me to enlighten you.Activision has no say in what goes on at Blizzard. None. Blizzard is essentially the same as it was before the merger. Do you know why? No, probably not, so let me tell you. Activision was owned by the French company Vivendi before the merger, and so was Blizzard. They were both answering to the same higher power before the merger, and it's no different now.The authenticator is sold at a cost. It is a modified VASCO DIGIPASS GO 6 device. VASCO manufactures the GO 6 for Fortune 500 companies and banks, and Blizzard purchases them from VASCO for a higher price than what we pay Blizzard. The shipping cost of the authenticator is free if you live within the United States as well. There is also a phone app that is available for 99 cents, and even for free for some phones. Do you think that 99/0 cents covers how much it costed Blizzard to develop those apps in-house? I highly doubt it does, and I know it doesn't in the case of the latter. Blizzard has also been giving away the physical authenticator for FREE to some people who were recently victims of an account compromise.Do you still think that it's a money grab?
