May 20th 2007 1:16PM #18, Well let's see, either Blizzard is as evil as they are which won't surprise me one bit and they just sell the list, or seeing how there are supposed "7 million" accounts, maybe the scammers just send it to any spam list and see who responds!
For all you idiots who think it's "sneaky" or "very sneaky," here's a clue -- it's not -- it's quite idiotic and only idiots would fall for this stuff.
People who get hacked are likely to be victims (or eventual victims) of other types of identity theft. ID theft will only work on stupid, gullible, greedy people. End of story.
Blizzard has been warning people how they will never ask for passwords, etc. And people still stupidly get hacked. Maybe, it would work better if they said "Hey, if you get hacked it's because of your own stupidity!" Then when the stupid people get offended (assuming they're smart enough to realize they're being insulted), they'll quit and the quality of the game will improve substantially for the rest of us.
Feb 9th 2007 9:28AM Their devs are already as nerfed as can be -- they're constantly screwing stuff up; they've been so nerfed that they're now EQ devs!
Feb 8th 2007 7:28PM It's not the scammer's fault that people are so stupid to fall for this. If you get suckered, it's your own damn fault!
For those of you, who did get suckered, I have the following for you...
/target [stupid person]
/tell HA HA, YOU'RE TOO STUPID TO LIVE! WELCOME TO MY IGNORE LIST
Jan 29th 2007 9:28AM Sorry, actually two purposes -- to offer hundreds of gold and add anyone who whisper you for the offer to your ignore list because they're no-good beggars anyway.
Jan 29th 2007 9:23AM General Chat serves one purpose and one purpose only -- to ridicule people who asks inane questions about quests, locations, and what not.
Jan 18th 2007 7:12AM I'm so sick of the fact that the game companies continue to blame their own subscriber base for their own ineptitude. Like the SOE ilks before them, Blizzard is becoming more and more of fascists of late. This is a prime example of how players SHOULD NOT be banned. Bugs are inevitable; finding and fixing them is the game developer's responsibility. If players find an exploitable bug; it's not the player's fault that the bug is there. They didn't hire the inept developer to write that code; nor, did they hire the clueless testers who missed that bug! Why make it the customers fault!?!? Instead, they should apologize for allow the bug to affect everyone else and implement a fix as soon as possible. It's absolutely retarded that game companies to insist on banning players for reasons like thesee.
Blizzard, in terms of customer server, you really suck. But you know, that's what happens when you try to be like SOE (where are they these days? putting out expansion after expansion that no one cares abound??)
Jan 17th 2007 12:09PM I wouldn't touch Vanguard with a twenty-foot polearm; I wouldn't touch Vanguard if you gave me every purple in WoW; I wouldn't touch... well, you get the point...
Vanguard is a Brad McQuaid thingy, ex-EQ head honcho...Do you remember how lame EQ was when it first started? That's Brad's baby... *shudders*
Jan 17th 2007 12:04PM ROFL, if you thought the French are lame before, this really takes the cake.
The only thing that kept this from being any lamer is the fact that the guy didn't stand up and dropped dead like that Korean dude did after how many hours of continuous gameplay.
