Down with WoW up with Vanguard:SOH! (Warhammer isn't bad too =P)

Anyways, peoples have to be more careful! Probably best to look things up at the official website before doing something like that. Guess they learned it the hard way. =/

Always good to let people know about those type of issues time to time so they keep they're guard up. Nothing bad there can only help a few that can forget about those thing. Of course there is people that expect that everybody think the same way they. If the content does not please you there is always the option of other board or again to build your own!!!

Anyone who takes their WoW account seriously should just shell out the $7 or so for an authenticator key. It's about the size of a usb memory stick with a single button and tiny 6 digit screen. You digitally assign your key to your account, and every time you log on, you are prompted for a 6 digit code. You click the button on your key, and voila, a unique 6 digit code appears allowing you to log in.

Hackers could get your account name and password, but w/out the physical key, that info is worthless.

CDS you seem to think your opinion is more valuable then others. If you don't like the comments don't read them...simple. Not everyone is against freedom of speech, in fact the Iranians are dying for it, think about it... Oh and Blizzard sucks and they have the worst community of any MMO IMO, they attract suckers...

I don't understand why people bash WoW. If someone has an attraction to the lore, game play, Warcraft in general, or the community it creates, why not play the game? Isn't desirable content and PvP action determined by the individual playing...not the outsider's opinion? What's more, $13 per month to enjoy a recreational activity is a rather cheap expence compared to other pastimes or hobbies.

For 4 and a half years, Blizzard as done an incredible job at creating a digital universe full of diversity in many different aspects. For those who are drawn to other MMOs are attracted there not because WoW is a bad game, but because they prefer the services that other games provide.

However, with the interest of sticking on topic; people who hack for the intent of doing damage to others deserve to be caught and punished despite the software involved.

Actually, people aren't getting email, it is an ingame whisper that is poorly worded. Dauthus has it right - get an ingame authenticator.

@Ciuy - thats a really stupid comment. Everyone, and I don't care from what part of the globe you live in, likes free. But, they don't take the time to think.

There are suckers everywhere (we can all fall victim when we don't pay attention) for everything. These kind of hacks/scams rely on us not paying attention. We get so busy and caught up with things sometimes that it can be easy to miss but this is an excellent reminder that we must keep up our guard at all times.

You got that right. $13 in one of my other hobbies will provied less than 60 seconds of recreation. Ammo aint cheap like it once was :(
