Isn't turning the entire account BoA kind of uber unfair ? Imagine someone gets his account hacked, when he gets it back he can't sell his super cool 500 Mil item which is useless because it's not for his character. Am I the only one to think this is kind of extreme ??
That's particularly bad since D3 revolves ENTIRELY around items. If an entire account is BoA, that means it could become impossible for such a player to rebuild his character because, thanks to Blizzard, chars do not exist without items. Blizzard is essentially condemning the player to stick to his build/character.
It's a hard punishment for a player who is a victim of an account hack already. It's a double punishment.This sucks for legit players that needs a rollback. That means they can't sell/trade their items.
They could turn the service off all together, or simply said they do not do restores like every other game out there, or they could do this. It's a simple matter of downloading an auth on your phone if you have one for free, or spending a silly $6 to protect your account. If you can't do that, then you should be lucky that you get to keep your items.
If they didn't do this, the entire market would be dupes in another 6 months, and the game would be unplayable anyway. Really try to think about it here.
If you actually played the game, which you obviously don't, you'd also know that most people have more than one character. Not only that, but if you had a 500M item, it wouldn't be sitting in your inventory, you'd immediately put it up for sale if it wasn't of use to you. The only reason you wouldn't is if you have 10 other items up for sale each worth over 500M, in which case you don't need money.
