Post GAH blizzard
Stupid blizzard. Somehow someone got my password to my blizzard account. And I never click on links in my emails to ensure not to fall prey to phishing attempts sigh. But I got an email the other day saying that my email will be changed. So somehow someone either brute forced my password or something else happened. I heard that Blizzard had been broken into but I forgot if I changed my password since then as I hardly ever log into it. I get the stupid phishing emails 10 times a day so normally I ignore them but this one bothered me and looks like it was true sigh and the biggest problem is that they are so good at writing them that they look real too which is why I ignore them all. Either way I went to do a password reset in case I just forgot my new password and when i enter the email and name it says they don't match so looks like I have to hope that blizzard can give me my account back. And I didn't use the link in those emails either. I went to the site directly. just incase

What account? I thought you didn't play WoW? Tried it at beta and gave up shortly thereafter? Is that why you weren't on GW2 last night? Making a panda? :P

Most likely it had to do with your battlenet login. Blizzard was hacked and they said that
they got email addresses, secret words and encrypted passwords. It is possible they may have figured out your password.
Problem is, any of your games that use battlenet, the hackers would have access to. I think Blizzard was also going
to have people change their passwords, I also changed my email.

Easy enough just got off the phone with them. Luckily they told me that nothing was really done to my account minus changing the email. But all is back in my possession whew.
