WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I get the job was hard and people put a lot of blame on him but in general he seemed like a right moron with his responses to people asking genuine questions because they felt cheated by changes!
No. I am not a nice man. It's important that you understand that. It's going to save you a great deal of time and effort. There is not a warmer, kinder me waiting to be coaxed out into the light. I am acerbic. I can be cruel. It's who I am. Right to the bottom. I'm neither proud of this, nor ashamed of it. It simply is. And in my work, my nature has been an advantage far more often than it has been a hindrance. I'm not gonna change.

The man openly admitted to no longer reading the Shaman forums because he didn't like people asking the same questions. Complete goon. Goodbye.

In other news, I've rolled a Mage alt.

They were working on it, guess its working now as it was planned for WoD - I think you do <name-realm> though as it was on PTR, does not work for gold etc.

Just submit evidence in a ticket or whatever it asks, they'll resolve it within 24 hours - hopefully no one has tried logging in if they knew your email but updating to another email may be a good idea too if its for login (don't think they will tell you the exact issue?).

Yeah but if they attempt to login even with an authenticator from an unknown/allowed address or computer whatever it records now it'll block it, happened to mine and I had to send photographic ID in :(

Oh and authenticator code can be bypassed/hacked ;)

Ah that is good, you can rollback items via the website if it has now but gold is another issue if it did get hacked into. They do not usually tell you what you were getting the ticket for even if you are banned they just give some crappy auto reply :( lol

Mine got locked too earlier in the year. Waited 2 minutes on the phone, gave them the credentials and it was unlocked another minute later.

Citation Needed.

It's susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks (really rare), or if they are actively keylogging you waiting until the second you login and then using the same key to jack you (the key allows a login with it for I think up to a minute after it expires). Unless you are the NSA or someone has cracked This and managed to keep it quiet and everyone company using these passkeys hasn't noticed that they are getting random logins then yeah.

Think some people manage to get into others accounts by forging real life IDs and contact Blizzard too, Hydra was a supposed example of this.

Well, I cannot do it of course but yes - its not fool proof as that keylogger which causes client to crash then gets the authenticator code which is bypassed until they alter the password is how its done ^^

Yeah, seems pretty rare and unusual(?). Anyone taking proper precautions (e.g. not a total idiot) isn't going to get hacked with an authenticator on their accounts.
