    :lol:

    Okay, well someone at least was humorous when they stole your key? My guess would be that your key came up as one of the randomly generated ones that you can get using a keygen program, designed to accompany cracks.

    Weirdest thing that's happened to me was being told that I, in fact, was using my key - and as a result of using my key, I couldn't get onto b.net. o_O Always fun after getting booted from D2. Usually fixed itself after a while though, and I don't think I've had this problem since .09

    I've gotten "in use by Quietust" a fair number of times back during 1.09, but I've never seen it during 1.1x.

    But the weird thing was it only happened after I was bugging the hell out of the server by trying to get on to bnet after a realm down. I know it wasn't a stolen CD key because I have been using it for years. Then a few days later I was over at my friends place and he got the same message:lol:

    Dclone anyone;)

    When you install Diablo II it asks you to type in your name.
    Whatever you typed in that very first box will be what your IP is now called.
    If you typed "Mr. X" then somebody trying to use your account would see "CD Key currently in use by Mr. X"

    I've had that happen a number of times - seems your cd-key has been generated by someone. The thing to do is to try to log onto the battlenet and stay logged in for a day or two (or longer :) ).

    In such cases those who use stolen/generated cd-keys will just move on to another key.
