May 1st 2011 8:33AM I don't usually wear anything unless it's my WoW hat. I do have a bumper sticker on my van that says, "My other ride is an [Epic Mount]"
One day, as I was getting out of the van, a guy walked up and asked me, "Horde or Alliance?". "Horde!" I said. He gets a slight look of disgust on his face and says "F*ck you!" and walks away.
Apr 19th 2011 11:39AM I just recalled an time when my dad was alive, he played WoW. He had quit playing for a few months. My son was playing and noticed that "Grandpa's" character was logged in and online.
I knew my dad's account had expired, so I immediately kicked my son off the game and started throwing every kind of insult and profanity at the hacker.
I logged in to my dad's Battle.net account (I knew his login info) changed HIS password, then logged in to his account in game only to find his main laying dead in The Black Temple. The hacker had been soloing it.
Nothing was gone luckily. Apparently the hacker was farming.
I noticed on my dad's account that the hacker had used Refer a friend and got 30 days free game time. The friend's who was referred was named Kun. Which led me to believe it was a Chinese hacker (just speculation).
After I changed his password there was no more problems and my dad finished up the rest of the 30 free days he got.
Since he died a couple months ago, I still log in to check his account though it's inactive. And I've added Blizz's new phone security feature to the account.
I may reactivate his account soon and use it as a secondary account just for my son to play on.
But yeah, just thought I'd share that as well :)
Apr 19th 2011 11:25AM It wasn't an email telling me to change my password, it was an email saying my password had been changed.
I had to do a password reset everytime and change it to something else. It was basically me against the hacker at that time fighting for control of the account. He'd change the password, then I'd change it to lock him out, then he'd change it again.
Eventually he stopped, I logged in, but the damage was done.
Apr 19th 2011 11:03AM I was hacked about 2 years ago. I kept getting emails saying my password had been changed, so I'd change it, and I'd get another email saying it had been changed again.
Guildies who were online at the time said they kept talking to me but I wouldn't answer (it was the hacker logged in on my toon) . Then they got pissed when I (the hacker) raped the guild vault (I was an officer).
When I finally did get back in, I was devastated to see my toon standing there naked. I logged in to find EVERYTHING gone, the guild vault wiped, all my hard work down the drain.
I felt violated. VERY violated.
I emailed a GM right away and had everything mailed back to me in 3 days. The only things I didn't get back was my gold (several thousand) and a couple BoE epics I was selling at the AH.
Then it was a pain to sort through all the stuff that was returned. About 90% of it was stuff that belonged in the guild vault.
I immediately ordered an authenticator after that, wiped my hard drive, and reinstalled everything.
It was obvious to me that I had a keylogger somewhere. But I'll be damned if I could find the thing. Scans from every AV and Malware product known to man detected NOTHING.
I do know it DID happen right after I used WoWmatrix to install a new addon. To this day, I blame WoWmatrix for downloading that "addon"was probably a keylogger.
Now, I stick with Curse. I won't touch WoWmatrix again. AND I haven't been hacked since I put an authenticator on my account. But I've witnessed many others being hacked. Including friends whom I tried and tried to explain to them the importance of an authenticator...but they wouldn't listen. Then they get hacked and say, "Damn dude, I should have listened to you and bought an authenticator." Derrrrr.
If you don't have one, get one. If you don't get one and get hacked, don't whine about it. You've been warned enough.
Mar 22nd 2011 8:15AM Awesome! My Tauren DK will look so much more ummmm.. Taurenly--- riding around on this rather than that Sparkle Pony.
In fact, most Horde races look ridiculous riding around on a sparkle pony.
Seriously, your toon looks all hardcore, decked out in the best gear. You stand there taunting enemy players, winning every duel, bragging about how OP you are.... then you pop out the sparkle pony. Suddenly you lose 100 iLevel points and all respect of everyone within 100 yards who can see you.
Yeah, I quit using my sparkle pony months ago, so this mount will do. This will be just right :)
Mar 15th 2011 3:53PM Everytime she says "Friday" it's like nails on a chalkboard.
Oh, and hey, if I hadn't watched that, I wouldn't know Friday comes after Thursday and then it's Saturday followed by Sunday.
Feb 10th 2011 9:27AM WTH? I'm not even close to this achievement but I think it's terrible!
You wouldn't give someone a gift and then ask for it back.
Your workplace wouldn't pay you for all your hard work and then turn around and take your paycheck back and demand you work harder for it.
But Blizzard can just take back hard earned achievements? Ridiculous!
Bad move on Blizzard's part. VERY bad move.
Feb 5th 2011 10:02AM Quel'Delar, Might of the Faithful just because of the trouble I went through to get it and the achievement it gave me.
Most of the outfits and items from the holiday events.
And Old Crafty, just because it took me forever to fish him up and I like the smell of fish in my bank vault.
