You made the choice to have a family and a massive part of that choice is sacrificing all of your entertainment time for many years to come.

I'm sorry but your reasons is pretty lame. Always on drm that punishes you is way worse than any stunt that EA and Ubisoft has ever tried. And avoiding the AH because needing gear isn't my point. I never once said the AH was needed in my post. I'm saying that browsing the AH makes that awesome gear you just found seem weak. It is the main reason why I believe it shouldn't be in this type of game. It is all about gear and the fun is seeing what you can find. Part of that experience is weaken by the realization of what is out there. And with the amount of players and what appears first in the AH it gives off the impression that everyone is getting leet gear and all your finding is crap even though it is actually useful if the players would get their minds off the AH and focus more on the actually game they are playing. Ignoring it all together in my opinion is something that takes a great amount of effort. Unlike the WoW AH that we could run by and never see. Diablo's appears there at the login screen before we even get to the game we see it.

Nothing about cracking properly hashed and salted passwords is quick.
From what I understand even the salt is unique per person, so they can't even check if 2 or more people used the same password and attempt the crack those as higher priority.

Yeah...no

EC2 offers Nvidia GPU clusters to do some quick supercomputing crunching. It's been used before in popular password leaks. It's an easy way to crack millions of password quickly.

Everyone got bent out of shape when it happened to Sony but when it happens to anyone else it's "okay because it's normal". Double standards, much?

I didn't get bent out of shape when it happened to Sony.

Either way, I updated my authenticator code (not entirely clear if those were compromised?). Though it's annoying you have to remove then re-add it to do that. mellowsmiley.gif
My code changes every minute or so O.o
No, not the generated codes, the secret key used to generate them. When you first set it up you provide that key from the app (It was probably something like US-1111-1111-1111). The secret key is used along with the current time to generate those numbers you enter when you login.

OHHH. Yeah have no recollection of that number. I only used it once to activate the generator.

It sucks and I think Sony had such a negative reaction because it was the first major hacking of a gaming company. Also all the information was stored in plain text including passwords. It is still bad that they got hacked especially since they can have money accounts as part of people's accounts but at the same time after everyone else being hacked, sony, ea, steam, riot, square-enix, etc. people reaction to it is obviously going be a bit toned down after so many others. Also a lot of people blaming it on D3 are being silly it has really nothing to do with d3 and everything to do with hackers are just targeting gaming companies now too.

Passwords were encrypted.

Change PW if your paranoid, but chances are your 1 out of millions is not going to get decrypted. It's not a simple "hack one, hack all" encryption, they'd have to do each PW one at a time. If Blizzard thought it would be a big deal, they'd force password changes like Sony did. Sony stored in plain text, which was down right embarrassing.

Plus the account is locked down after a few failed attempts so brute force guessing won't work unless the hacker gets lucky. I'd still change the PW of both account and email account as they still could figure out how to decrypt the file. Better yet, get a new email account with completely different password and make it only for battle.net.
