Default More Fuel For The D3 DRM Fire ..... Sorry.

Afternoon All,

Several reports have been made of Battle.Net accounts being hacked, with various effects ranging from disappearing Items to Player Characters being used without the owners knowledge.

With the severe outages of the servers all over the world and the live launch of the 'Real Money' Auction house next tuesday, this does not bode well for Blizzard.

Article on PC Gamer

Keep an eye on yours if you play D3.

I would say 'Enjoy', but thats not likely...

You can roll back. Although that's limited to 2 before being banned from the RMAH - which according to most people here isn't going to be too much trouble.

Apparently, the RMAH release has been set back, no?

There is that, but Blizzard didn't really design the roll back feature for that purpose. They need to figure this out and get it sorted before more people are hacked and a flood of angry and outgoing Gamers starts.

No, not as far as i am aware. The launch date is still next tuesday, one week from now.

What do you mean before a flood of angry gamers, there already is an angry flood and it just keeps growing, Blizz. messed up this time and it will be interesting to see how theyw ill redeems themselves. Truthfully I don't see any redemption for them, they have now tarnished their rep. and once credability is lost its typically can never be regained.

The 'flood' was in reference to all those that will stop playing and dispose of the game.

Maybe, but the game is still incredibly fun!

I think the 'flood' is just in your own head really. They've sold over 2 millions copies of Diablo 3 so they'll be pretty happy with that. Don't mistake a small number of very loud people for a lot of people.

That's an awsome quote.

they were giving away free copies to wow subscribers, so that number may be inflated. it will also be long term effects.

That's pre-orders and opening night sales, not including give away copies. Blizzard will make a tidy sum from Diablo 3. The death of Blizzard has been often heralded but never arrived and it's not going to be this that sinks them.
