yep, worst part is the hacks did this on a minor level weeks ago and it was reported. blizz said it had to be an addon error....so they knew they had this issue at least 3 weeks ago and havent been able to fix it, or the info never made it to where it needed too.

It actually might not be that easy to fix.

If they had kept their shenanigans to quietly farming raid bosses, we'd be allowed to login while Blizz fixed it on the downlow. But since they went more public with it, now we have to wait for the fix.

not able to be hacked they say....Impossible they say


Blizzard never said this. By nature, being part of the in-line world, they're more than aware that it COULD happen.

The fact that you would even jokingly approve of this says loads about your character.

Did you read the link?

From what I gathered, it started with the insta-kill hack, and was used in raids. The hackers have since escalated and moved out into the cities.

Why didn't they just do that on private servers and keep it out of the real deal servers? Now I can see Blizzard with account bans etc. I'm sure they will now have employees keeping and eye on that website. It just sucks for the people who don't cheat. We have to wait this out and wait for it to be fixed. It's Sunday and most of us like to play the day away without having to do anything else. Personally, I don't salute hacks. If you wanna hack the game ask Blizzard to hire you. Get paid to do it.

Inb4 it is "proven" that Syria did it, and invasion can begin.

Yeah, at this point, the hackers have established themselves as un-trustworty, unfortunately.

Blowing up entire realms isn't going to get you a job interview. Contacting Blizz with your discovery and keeping it quiet would have probably gotten them hired. But if I'm a manager at Blizzard, there's no way I let these guys in the building now.
