Diablo® III

New way for HC death...RIP

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....

Shouldn't he have had to type in an authenticator code for logging in from a different ip though? I've always had to, launcher or not, if it was from a different ip.

You raised hell and got the services for free right? He has no business using your applications to test. A proper technician would have all sorts of stress testing software for both video errors and hardware errors.


This.

and also this...

Moral of the story is to not use auto-login. GF/dog/cat/computer guy might mess with your chars.


What a horrible way to go!!!!

I think this is one of the most unusual HC losses I've heard, and it makes me not even sure what to say. R.I.P, and hopefully your new adventures in Sanctuary yield bountiful rewards. Good luck out there!

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....

I missed your post. I never used auto login as hackers can view your info. I did not realize this
was the case here


You somehow missed the OP?

...

Hilarious death but still sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing this epic story.

I think this needs to go into the 101 ways to die. This is possibly in the top 5 epic all time if not #1.

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.

Next time, log off your account.

What the heck? How did he know your login and password? Isn't account sharing against the TOU?

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:

Your new WD looks like he's coming along great!

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
