    Warcraft problem, can anyone help please.

    Hi, last night my son tried to log into his Warcraft account like he has done for the past year. It now is asking for an authentication code, what is this? Tried to ring Blizzard but their phone lines are in high usage so it just keeps cutting me off.
    Thanks.

    Sounds like asking for the CD key from the original box.

    Sounds like its done him a favour

    He should be out in the real world instead of locked away pretending he is Merlin

    Going to sound like a utter dork here, but its asking for his battle.net authentication code.
    goto bizzards website and click on the battle.net logo to setup.

    eu.battle.net/ind…tml

    Its a new security pre-caution that has been forced onto players.

    Nothing wrong with WoW yeah they are asking for his account to be merged … Nothing wrong with WoW yeah they are asking for his account to be merged with battlenet.



    Have just checked with my eldest son and he says my youngest son is using a battlenet account, he now tells me the authentication code comes from using an additional bit of hardware you get from blizzard which gives a code to use with the account to make it more secure. It sounds more and more like his account has been hacked.

    Something is not right there, as you should just be able to log on with … Something is not right there, as you should just be able to log on with email and password.



    This seems to be the item someones used after hacking the account.

    Authentication code is what you use if you have the little usb looking thingy. costs like 20 quid from blizzard.. Should only be on there if one of you has it.

    I thought they were going to use your mobile phone as the Authenticator thingi?
