About Blizzard Security or Hello Tree

    While on vacation and not knowing what to do, I decided to run in Diablo III.
    There it was! Blizzard had other plans for this.

    So, as an honest person, I went to battle.net and bought a Russian license. Then the fun began:
    Your account *** is temporarily suspended due to a number of suspicions. To unlock it, please do the following: [...]
    3. Change the password
    To use your Battle.net account again, you must change the password. To do this, go to the following link:

    So, buying from Diablo for money from an existing three-year account is a series of suspicious actions. Great, I think.

    I'm going to change the password:
    We must make sure that you are the legal owner of the account ***. To do this, you must perform one of the following "verification" actions.
    Choose your verification method:
    - Answer the security question for your Battle.net account
    - Indicate the first 6 characters of the game key for any of the games assigned to your Battle.net account: World of Warcraft, The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm , StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Diablo III.

    The answer to my secret question is hammered by randomness, because I consider this method of account recovery a security hole (you can’t choose your own question there, and it’s easy to find the answer to any of the standard ones knowing my account on any social network).

    Okay, let's go for the key:
    Hello, ***! Blizzard Entertainment thanks you for your purchase.
    If you made this purchase on Battle.net (and not in the Blizzard online store), then the game is already attached to your account.

    The fun does not end there. On the key registration page it says:
    It is necessary that the game key was registered at least 3 days ago.

    In total, the logic of morons from Blizzard is as follows:
    1) if for three years as a registered user I just bought a game from my regular ip - he made a number of suspicious actions and should be blocked;
    2) in order to unlock, he must wait three days, then go into his blocked personal account in some way and copy the key of the game he just bought from there; It would be especially interesting to find out how, in the opinion of Lizard, this increases security: if someone broke my account, then he also gained access to the keys.

    This is just some kind of apotheosis of idiocy. I stocked up with popcorn and wait for someone to answer me in support.
    PS Admins, why did you remove the Idiots on a Wire blog? Now would be useful.
