Sep 18th 2008 1:37PM No, all this shows is that Blizzard has a PR department. And that you're probably a conspiracy theorist.
Sep 18th 2008 1:32PM The latency between you and the keylogger receiver, and the keylogger receiver and Blizzard's servers, would also probably prevent this from being an issue, assuming you don't wait more than a second or two between pressing digit #6 and enter.
Also, I'm guessing that once you enter your WoW password, you have a sort of login "lock" on your account while it waits for the authentication code. So no one else could be logging in on your account while in this state.
Sep 18th 2008 1:11PM Well, the game is secure. It's your password that isn't. That's your responsibility.
All that Blizzard is doing here is offering up an option to help you make it more secure, for people who (for whatever reason) have problems doing so on their own.
But they aren't going to do that for free.
(And seriously, you're complaining about a one-time cost of $6.50? When you probably pay at least $15 a month for the game?)
Sep 18th 2008 1:06PM Maybe stop looking at so much pr0n then...?
I'm not trying to be harsh, but seriously, the fact is that if you keep getting hacked, then there's something going wrong on your end of things. It might not be you, but it's on your end.

You guys are beating a dead horse here. There's no new information presented here at all, so why is this post-worthy? It's not news.
Sep 17th 2008 4:00PM That would make sense if the timetable worked backward from projected release, but it doesn't. Blizz can release the patch a week before Wrath releases and things could be just fine.
The patch just went on the test realms less than a week ago, and there's a lot of things that need to be tested, plus Blizz has stated that it's going to be an extra-long testing cycle to give add-on authors plenty of time to convert to and test their stuff against all of the mod-breaking changes that are happening with 3.0.2 and up. So another 3-4 weeks is a safe bet.
Sep 14th 2008 3:53AM Also, Blizz has stated several times that this PTR will take an extra-long time.
Sep 13th 2008 7:33PM There will be 10- and 25-man versions of all raids in Wrath. Nothing else.
Sep 13th 2008 7:09PM No one knows. I'm guessing it'll be tested for at least 4-6 weeks, considering all of the changes it's going to bring (both in game and under the hood), plus the number of times they'll patch the patch to keep it in sync with the beta changes.
