The whois record for that domain was just registered on the 11th of March. And not by Blizzard but by someone at a nondescript chinese address. I would stay away, sounds like phishing.

No, Starcraft II itself cannot remember your Battle.net password. However, you can use keyboard macros or macro/hotkey programs to enter it for you. People (including myself) have been using scripts to automatically launch, enter passwords, and log into various Blizzard games. This is NOT a violation of Blizzard's terms of use, because it does not affect ...

Here's what I finally got to work: 8 Pool 7 Overlord As soon as pool completes: Queen Zerglings x 3 As soon as queen spawns, spawn larvae on the hatchery When money isn't a problem anymore, kill a drone for the extra 1 supply for 2 zerglings Keep building zerglings until the achievement pops up. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have built that 8th ...

Blizzard has released the Diablo 3 downloaders. They allow you to pre-load the full setup (around 7 GB) on your PC without asking any credentials. Of course without a valid key these files are completely unusable, they will only work when Blizzard decides to make the game playable on servers through Battle.Net login authentication. Blizzard Downloaders ...

If you used your Battle.net password for anything else (e-mail, Steam, other accounts), change those passwords ASAP. Other than that, it sounds like you've already done exactly what you need to do: Contact Blizzard and they'll help you with the recovery process. The account recovery page will help you regain access to your Battle.net account. Once you've ...

Yes, they are in a directory such as: C:\Documents\StarCraft II\Accounts\[number]\[other]\Replays The cool thing is that the replay files themselves are quite small (11-15 KB on my computer) so it should be easy to email and share. Another cool thing is that SC2 registers the ".SC2Replay" file extension, so all you need to do is double click on the file ...

The number next to that shield is your "achievement points". You earn them based on the point values of various achievements you have completed. These achievements include the ones from single player as well as multiplayer. Go to the achievements tab of your profile for more information on the achievements you have and how to earns the ones you don't. If ...

Campaign progress is stored online. Swapping computers (or reinstalling) shouldn't affect that. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure if you can save a game in the middle of a mission like you could in SC1, and if so, I'm not sure if that would be saved. But completed missions are completed on other computers. Update: I have noticed some things that just ...

I sent an e-mail to blizzard support, this is what they answered: Quality and customer service are the highest priorities for Blizzard Entertainment. Because we cannot guarantee a positive gaming experience for users connecting to servers outside the supported region, we do not support use outside of the designated region. You can change which region you ...

Once upon a time, there was a way to make World of Warcraft (Blizzard's other giant game) remember your password. You could edit certain files to have your password be filled in automatically. Blizzard specifically disabled this ability, by removing all ability to change the login screens. They did this in part to prevent spyware/viruses from editing them ...

It is Blizzard's position that the session ID hijacking claim is bogus. Bashiok stated in his post that thus far none of the compromised accounts they have investigated had an authenticator attached prior to the compromise. A further update specifically asserts that the session hijacking being described is technically impossible. The advice to use an ...

Yes, you can. You still have to have a valid SC1 account though. And it uses Classic Battle.Net, so you can't hook up with RealID friends from SC2 and WoW.

The CD key is the key you need. Simply type in the key you already have, and the game should be added to your account. You can also download the game from the website after you've done this. For Diablo II, I seem to recall it generates a new, longer key, and I think you'll need this longer key for the downloadable version - but as long as you use your CDs, ...

You can use WinAuth, which is a popular third party authenticator for Blizzard games. It's not quite as secure as the official means since if someone gains access to your computer they can use the authenticator, but it's far better than nothing(you could probably put it on a flash drive so it isn't always on your computer).

A Diablo 3 License is Non-resellable. Once the key is activated it is tied to the owner's Battle.Net account, which is non-transferrable and cannot be sold under any circumstances at this time, per the term of Blizzard's EULA. So NO, your friend cannot sell you his copy of Diablo III in any legal way.

Season Lock fixes your League. You can not be promoted or demoted, but you still earn points within your Division. Bonus pool also stops accumulating for all players. Your hidden matchmaking rating (MMR) is still adjusting unrestrained, though. If your MMR stabilizes within another League during Season Lock, you will be promoted/demoted immediately after ...

Blizzard used to offer a J2ME-based authenticator for older phones, but they have since discontinued it. They now offer authenticators for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Other than a phone, your options would therefore be a tablet, iPod (touch), or the physical authenticator. For those without such a device, the other answers propose ...

You need to download both to play the expansion.

From the Diablo Wiki: What does the gem in chat do? Nothing, other than change colours and put up the occasional unusual message. As was explained to us by a Blizzard employee, it was not set up to send data to the server, and that would be necessary in order for it to have any other function than to just "look good." If you get ...

So, with respect to this specific exploit, the most important thing is to stay out of public games, and under no circumstances accept an invitation or join request from somebody who you don't know. You'll also want to disable Quick Join, and verify that your friends are who they say they are before playing with them as well. Once an account is compromised, ...

On OS X as of patch 1.1: /Users/[You]/Library/Application Support/Blizzard /StarCraft II/Accounts/[Account]/[Profile]/Replays. Before patch 1.1 the StarCraft II folder was located in /Users/[You]/Documents instead of under Application Support. Unfortunately, while opening a .sc2replay file in OS X will launch the game, it won't auto-start the replay. ...

Yes from the blizzard support page: Can I designate an item as a gift? In regards to Blizzard's game titles, you can only designate Digital Downloads as gifts. Doing so will send a transferable authentication key to your email address for you to give to someone at your discretion. For other products that you wish to gift to someone, simply ...

What about going to your "Match history" and selecting the game you just played? It should take you to the "score-summary" and there you should also be able to add the player as a friend.

Blizzard released an official statement about the current situation. Their official statement denies that there are any current exploits, or that Authenticator-locked accounts have been compromised. (We can always trust what a company says about their own security, right?) However, it also mentions that, if you're concerned about security, in addition to ...

Notified? No, but they can see that you're no longer in their friend's list.

Yes, you can play all races in multiplayer. However, there aren't all technologies you might find in campaign (which is Terran, with few missions in Protoss storyline) as it'd imbalance it.

So, with the advent of patch 1.1, I discovered the real answer to this question. When loading documents with Battle.net-only dependencies, you will now be prompted to log in >and download the dependency data, rather than failing to load. So the reason you have to log in, as that the default map (or my default map at least) had some online dependencies ...

Yes, you will be able to convert those keys to Game Keys by signing in to Battle.net, and adding your keys here. The game key for Diablo II is different from the CD-key and is the key tied to the downloadable version of your game (after you link it to an account), but you'll still be able to use your existing CD-keys for installs off the discs.

You are unable to withdraw the funds directly after depositing into the Battle.Net account balance. However you could possibly find a good Diablo 3 item to purchase worth around the amount you want to withdraw on the real-money auction house and re-sell it listing with PayPal as the posting method. Not an ideal way to go about it, but the only way to ...
