Never ever ever bought any gold but did visit a few wow related info sites....thankfully I was able to get it recovered but totally had to change my battle net address, passwords, etc. Now I change passwords every so often. Somewhere somehow I was key logged.
It really is the players fault. People could not live without dps meter so they downloaded 3rd party programs with bad protection and got owned by key loggers.
Some people not using the official patcher for whatever reason and basically installing key loggers.
I can't blame some people for wanting soul calculators and visiting sites to get it, but those sites were hacked.
Yes , there are reports of being hacked , and some rather odd things with the reports are , from what I have read on the main boards are they are being stripped of money and items, but passwords and such are not being changed.
You mention 3rd party parsers are to blame, and that as of yet has to be determined, as several of those saying they have been hacked are reporting they did not download the parser, visit external sites, have AV programs running , etc etc.
lets face it your post is just your way of dropping your opinions on dmg meters ( it is a HUGE subject on the main boards)
All I am saying is, yes it seems people are being hacked , from somewhere or something, but until you have ALL the facts , one should refrain from posting things that are entirely subjection on the posters part , and include that as a fact. you do the game, nor those honest people who got blindsided by a hacker no service.
(side note before you must have been hacked, you use a dmge meter blah blah) I do not use a dps meter , parser, nor have I been hacked in Rifts, I just find it silly one always wants to make the person hacked out as the bad person in all this the main boards are ripe with trolls and finger pointing, as well as idea's as to were the hacks are coming from, ( most of it stemming from the parser and add on debate)
Either way happy rifting and my 2 cents.
