So a funny little story about Diablo 3 I thought I'd share with you.
I purchased Diablo 3 on release and played it some in the first weeks, ultimately leaving the game in the beginning of Act IV and never returned. At that time I was about level 20 or 30 I think, no special gear and no money since I had spent them all on upgrading for future crafting (dunno why, I was and am a noob!)
Today I decided that I wanted to give it another go since I have some friends who still play it, and I thought that I might find it fun to play with them. Only problem is that they're max level and do end-game stuff. But when I logged into my Battle.net account, I found that my D3 account was banned. I thought it quite weird but did recall that I may have received some mails in the past about it being banned, which I ignored because "i was never gonna play that game again".
Anyway, I wrote to the support and after some hours I received a kind (and very standard) response that the account had been hacked but was unbanned for me. I may or may not have changed the password at some time since I played D3, but I don't recall ever having lost control with the account, thus the password was never changed by the hackers. In the mail I received from Blizzard I was provided a link that I could use to rollback my characters. I was about to do it when I decided to make sure that I was actually missing anything and that I wasn't rolling back unneccessary.
So I logged into the game, and guess what I found! My main character that I had played to Act IV was now level 60 (paragon level 61, which from what I can read takes some time to reach). The character had four legendaries and a lot of other rare stuff and about 19.500.000 gold!!
I didn't take me long to conclude that my account had been used for gold farming and I rejoice at the thought of some damn gold sellers having actually given me a free power level and lots of gold. I hope they lost of lot of work when the account was banned. I would never reach such level by myself but now that they have given me the opportunity to jump in and join my friends, I will certainly do it!
See you all in-game
