Haha, you guys are funny.
**Moral of my story....turn off auto-login.
My re-roll is doing pretty well so life is good. Just had to share this story. definately unprofessional and I probably would have done something I regretted had he been near me when I found out. He never said anything, just gave me back my computer and said your all set....smart move on his part. Haha, glad I can laugh about it now....
and also this...
What a horrible way to go!!!!
Isn't it against the ToS & EULA to have anyone play, login, modify, etc your account under any circumstances unless you are the parent or guardian of the person and they are under the age of 18?

If you had read the post you would realize he clearly didn't consent to a repair technician logging into his account to kill his HC character....
You somehow missed the OP?
Hilarious death but still sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing this epic story.
oh the feels! of heartache! I own a computer shop, and have worked with clients who want gaming rigs, or upgrades and the like. I will install games for clients if they wish, However I wait until the customer comes in for testing games/etc. When I get a computer in the shop that has Skype auto login, I feel dirty and try to close it out before someone can message my "client". Let alone all the other things that someone in that position has access to. Still, sad story, and hope you get some good luck in the coming times.
Yes, if he had one on the account. But even if he didn't, you would think that maybe Blizz would have set up their network security to require credentials anyway, even though the player had selected the auto-login option, because a sudden change in IP address is often a red flag for trouble.
In any event, this computer technician has no business messing around with the client's software. If he wanted to start it up to make sure it ran okay, he should have called the client first, although he really shouldn't have any need to do this with the robust diagnostic tools available these days.
Thorn10, please consider adding an authenticator to your account. The wireless one is free and pretty easy to set up. Here's the info:

as a computer tech myself I find this to be ridiculously amateur. Unless a client specifically tells me hes having performance issues in a game I wont open any games, normally I use stress test software to troubleshoot issues.
Anyone telling the OP, dont leave on auto login, blah blah. You have no idea what some people leave on their PCs that they hand over to me... Financial records, home made !@#$, auto logins to everything possible.. its really crazy
If this happened at my shop (it wouldnt though), if you talked to the owner he would definitely refund your money. You need to call them asap
