I dont really care for Athene, personally, but I like watching Diablo to convince myself that I shouldnt play it. Guy's trying to log into his account and pastes his password into the username field. 6,000 people see it. Now his facebook and AtheneIRL youtube channel is getting spammed with porn and a bunch of other crap. Kind of incredible to see this guys internet life fall apart in real time. LIke watching a train wreck.

This is why you should use different passwords for everything.

Don't know who Athene is, but I feel sorry for the guy. In hindsight, he probably shouldn't of been copying and pasting his password in the first place, though.

It's been at least two years since I've heard mention of "Athene". Got into watching his videos after wanting to find something similar to Pure Pwnage.

I think he's talking about this person. First they're hacking our accounts, next thing you know they're stealing data on our top-secret augs.

I don't think it's technically "getting hacked", if you give your password away to the internet.

its easier to type "gets account hacked" in the thread title than it would be to say "Athene pastes his password into the username field while logging in to Diablo 3 during a live stream, suffers the consequences"

Pure Pwnage was so good but I never "got" Athene. He didn't have the lovable loser thing that Kyle had. Athene just seemed like a dick.

After a bit of quick research he seems to be your average cocky "I'm good at games and film myself playing them" guy. Possibly more cocky than the average.

Yeah, I just tuned into his stream to watch the train wreck and he even said himself, "Oh no, I'm so cocky and now this happens. The trolls are going to tear me apart." Dude knows he's acting like a douchebag, making it that much worse.

Copying and pasting passwords is a bad idea. Especially if you're doing it on a livestream. Why do that? Was the password an untypeable string?

I feel like such a voyeur now. I ended up starting to watch his livestream and they're all realizing how it's becoming "viral" and how threads are popping up everywhere over what just went down. It's kinda interesting to watch how he's reflecting on everything live.

From the picture it seems he did it to himself by not pressing tab before entering his password. Problem is - the OP explained it really terribly, as if some kind of hacker exposed his password, or something. Really confusing. Why would he phrase it like that?

Wow found it now http://www.own3d.tv/AtheneLive/live/42146 I don't know how long ago it happened but he's taking it really well. Taking it all in stride.

That sucks, I never took Athene serious the very few times I watched his videos. I just find it odd that someone who watches his stream would do that, I mean if you dislike the guy why watch his stream, if you like him why fuck with him? Idk, that sucks, hope it's a speedy recovery for him.

Oh, there's a live thing still going on?

In any case, I say he doesn't deserve what happened to him. It's awesome to see the person behind the persona from this stream, though.

When you're trying to log in to Diablo 3 it'll save you a lot of time, the Europe servers are fucked right now and each attempt is usually rejected instantly and you have to retype your password. Thus Copy + Paste saves you a lot of time. What happened was the game switched to the email box instead of the password box for whatever reason and as he was in the routine pasted without looking what was happening. The same would have happened if he was typing his password fyi as he probably wouldn't have noticed it was in the wrong field until it was too late (or at least done a significant amount of his password).

Thanks Blizzard. People wouldn't have to copy their passwords to the clipboard if you would just fucking allow us to save it when logging in.

Can't comment on what he said in the stream, but from what little I've seen of his videos, I always got the impression he was just doing an act and that he probably wasn't like that at all.

It's because he plays a character. Not his actual self.

Apparently he was trying to write a macro script that would've attempted to log in to his D3 account automatically because of what I'm guessing are server login problems but it backfired and put his password on the same line as his e-mail and that's how this all started. So yeah it is a little inaccurate to say he was "hacked," he just made a huge mistake that compromised his account.

He might be cocky but he seems pretty reasonable (I mean he apparently donates to charity too) so this is unfortunate. At least he is taking it well.
