Re: Blizz makes it damn hard to share accounts now! The main reason for the hassle is for security users no longer playing. By requiring accounts requesting a password change to be the same IP or subnet first logged in, the reduce the amount of stolen accounts. Krisnatharok is correct. When installing the game, you can now play before the it is fully installed, which is only a fraction of the time it would typically take to install. Another option that would keep you within ToS.

Yea, I know. I wasn't really complaining about it, just remarking that it was a hassle to help out a former guildy and that times have certainly changed since I last played this game. Really it was a kudos to Blizz for increasing security of their account, even if it was annoying. I shared my account and other accounts when I actually did play the game, I don't see why I would start following the TOS now, especially since I really wouldn't care if my account was banned/suspended.
Yes, I realize with their new downloader that I could play the game without downloading it all, but I didn't even want to do that. The sole purpose of this adventure was to give a former guildy 60,000G in the quickest, least intrusive way possible. I didn't want to download the game for two reasons: I didn't want to wait and install it on my PC and I didn't want to tempt fate and get back into the game.

said by stvnbrs:Yup, I had to reinstall recently and was on my bank toon in about 5 minutes. On my main out in the wild it was like I had 3000ms pings or something. Definitely not playable, but once the whole area I was in loaded, it was fine. I just logged and let it finish downloading.
