    Exactly why I hate the cloud and having to have Internet to play my games.

    Obviously you know nothing about Diablo, as even to play OFFLINE in SINGLEPLAYER you have to be connected to the internet and your saves and account information are stored with the obviously (Not) cautious and secure Blizzard. This is due to Diablo III's Online-DRM which can cause players to rubber band incessantly.

    If they got an encrypted DB then they will not be able to access it? :D
    I love MMORPG's.

    Didn't something like this recently happen to Steam Forums?

    They assured customers that actual Steam accounts themselves were not compromised, though.

    I didn't use Steam Forums so I didn't pay much attention to it.
