Got hacked a while back. A bunch of friends on my server have a little podunk guild that we generally keep alts in. Sometimes if we decide to leave a guild on our mains, we will go back to this guild as a placeholder.
We have an Australian friends who is about as quirky as they get. He usually disappears for months on end, reappears for a month or so, then is gone again.
The dude is always broke. He literally has no money on him. When he does get a little bit, he usually spends it on frivolous shit. If he ever has more than 1k on his account, that would be considered rich for him.
Part of his problem was that he is the worst person at looting mobs EVER. We would run through instances back in BC and he would forget to loot ALL OF HIS MOBS.
He is also very AFK prone. He gets easily distracted by girlfirend/televison/pet. Kind of a scatterbrain. He once went for a 5 minute afk in Shadowlabs. That 5 minutes turned into 45, so we decided to kill him.
The priest we ran with stripped naked and ran into Blackhearts room and aggoed EVERYTHING. He then trained it back to our friends and let them eat his face. About an hour later he logged back onto vent with "I hate you guys". Roars of laughter ensued.
So, a couple of months ago, we see he characters logging on and off. He literally doesnt play some of his characters at all. We were surprised to see his level 60 warrior.....who has been 60 since vanilla when that was his main. Then his low level hunter....then it just kept cycling through his toons.
Did we report the hack? Nah. We made fun of the hacker. Every time he logged on, we mocked him mercilessly for hacking the poorest account in WoW. Not only that, but he was the only person to have zero access to the guild bank. None. Nada. Ziltch.
He would log on.....and be greated by "Ni Hao" or "Why cat no eat fruit?" and log back off.
He would log on and be greeted by "Enjoy your 100 gold idiot" and log back off.
The hack didnt take incredibly long. There probably wasnt much to sell. I also imagine that the "care package" was an upgrade for our friend.
So, for those hackers out there. Nice job. You did the impossible. You hacked an account that cost you more money in time than you actually got from the account. Impressive. Most impressive.
I know everyone knows people that have been hacked. And it sucks ass big time. This was possibly the one time it was amusing.
