I was rushing a friend yesterday when this idea popped into my head. You could get to know someone with uber stuff on battle.net, then after a while tell them if you could get their e-mail adress (it has to be the one he's using for the account) so that you could send him a "funny pic" or porn or something like that. Once you get his e-mail, log out of battle.net then click sign in. Put the guy's username there and then change his e-mail adress to your e-mail adress. Once that's done, click on Forgot Password, put your e-mail down and press send. A new password for the account pops up in your inbox, then you can sign into his account and do whatever the hell you want, and he can't get back into it since there's a new password. Has anyone ever tried it, and if so does it actually work?

You have to be logged in to change your email i think..

EDIT: godamn, i think that might actually work. Lol thats one hell of a major problem..

No, the weird thing is you'd don't need to be logged in. Makes no sense at all, I know. No reason why you should be able to do it outside of your account...

when they ask you "did you forget your password",doesnt it like give you a test thing? or is blizzard a complete dumbass.
and another thing. why the hell would you want someone's account? what is it that is so special about getting someone's account? what do they have that could possibly be worth getting there password to there email,finding the blizzard email (if they havnt already deleted it),clicking i forgot my password and hopfully getting a pasword all over a 56k connection.

YAY! 800 ANOYYING POSTS!

"Why the hell would I want somebody's account"?? This is Diablo, not Starcraft :lol: . Unless you're an absolute idiot, you'd know that somebody would want another person's account so that they could take all of their godly items from their charcaters and dump them all into their own account. And, it would'nt take much time at all to get someone's e-mail, change it and get a new pass. Of course, this would all be pointless in Starcraft. No use of having somebody's account there.

It wouldn't work. Blizzard would send an email to him varifying that a change was requested.

Yes, but Blizzard may have also considered that the person's old e-mail adress that they were using for battle.net was deleated, and that person just wants to swich the e-mail to their new adress so that everything Blizzard tries to send to them just dissapears when it's sent to a dead adress. The person would'nt be able to verify that they changed the e-mail adress if they didn't recieve the verification e-mail.

All email access is lost at that point, so nobody could register it.

If you are going to lose access to this e-mail address, please update
your Battle.net account with a new address beforehand. Failure to
update your address will result in the loss of Battle.net e-mail
functionality; technical support will be unable to assist you with
this problem.

Believe me, if you've thought about it, so has blizzard. I'm sure they have this feature with some of their other games aswell, don't think they're that stupid.
