    Well, on the one hand, I loathe cheaters.

    On the other hand, I don't give out my phone number easily, and certainly not for this.

    And on the, ummm, third hand - I don't play this kind of game online anyway, so ... nowt to do with me.

    The SMS verification process is a onetime thing for any particular phone number and game user. Well, on the one hand, I hate cheaters too.

    I got the game when it was at Battlenet, including a couple of the expansions, and when it moved to Steam I don't think I was treated any different from the newbie F2Pers. Especially when they started removing the paid content. Learned my lesson.

    2FA is a very good thing, but SMS 2FA is the least secure method as phone numbers can be spoofed. Better would be to let people use standard authenticator software like MS, Google, Authy and the various open source implementations to achieve the same thing.

    Hoping this started to tighten the screw on dirty cheaters in D2... awesome game, but PVP can be frustrating sometimes.
