    I assume its something with the battery in it getting weak and its clock isn't working right so I'm not getting seeded properly

    I dunno, I'll try a few more times tonight before worrying too much

    the battery on my old physical dongle appears to be completely dead

    luckily I've used the mobile authenticator for a while now

    who am I to disagree?

    I kinda didn't want to switch to mobile authentication simply because version updates on the phone can bork that set up too

    But I'd rather not leave my account unsecured

    It will short out just as you go to login when the servers come up.

    I have no idea about replacement policies though.

    I have had the same one for abouuuuuuut 4 or 5 years now, I think. Haven't had any problems with that one.

    Then I got one from Blizzcon 2011 and that thing died after like 6 weeks. Crap shoot.

    The best name I have still ever seen in a game was a Erudite Shadow Knight in EQ named Abdul Alhazraad.

    I don't have any experience with Blizzard's authenticator, but I used to do IT support for a large bank that used authenticators. Desynching was a thing that could happen from time to time, it was extremely easy to fix. Like a simple 5 minute phone call. I'd imagine it would be similar with Blizzard.

    Yeah, that used to be a worry, but maybe a year ago(?) they added a feature where the authenticator app can give you a restore code. That way, if you get a new phone or have to reset your phone, or the app update breaks, you can enter the code into the app so that you can still access your account using the "same authenticator".

    Just have to make sure to save the restore code in a safe place.

    End on
    who am I to disagree?

    so it's the seed for the RNG?

    kinda, yeah, but not really

    I think it'd be closer described as the private key (since blizzard only needs the serial number to attach the authenticator, but the serial number isn't adequate enough to restore an authenticator).

    I don't think it would be the private key, that would be bad...

    It is like a public key to unlock your PKI dongle...

    I was thinking that but I was sticking to MCU.

    If I went full Avengers then it'd be something like:

    Wizard - Dr. Strange
    Barbarian - Hulk
    Witch Doctor - T'challa (I can't think of any other Avengers that fall within this power set)
    Demon Hunter - Hawkeye
    Monk - Iron Fist

    I thought character names were going to be seen when it goes live, and battletags were only shown in beta.
