Let me get this straight, someone without an authenticator got hacked and is telling us how authenticator isn't a good enough protection? Well done.

First off, you can't get past authenticator unless your email is compromised. If your email is compromised, silly little runescape is the least of your problems.

Second of all, if you had two factor authentication on your email (via sms or whatever), then your email is no longer the weak link in the chain and now even if someone gets access to your runescape account and your email credentials, they can't bypass the authenticator because your email is protected as well.

People can't just magically get your password or cut off your internet. It's a consequence of your own poor decisions, and if your computer has reached that heavily compromised state, then runescape should not be high on your priorities list in the first place.

The whole bit about you whining about authenticator while not using it yourself just shows that you're looking to blame everyone and everything - including the security options jagex has already provided you. Security options that you chose not to take. With that kind of attitude, no level of babysitting from jagex will be enough protection. You wouldn't take advantage of it in the first place.

Don't re-use the same password on multiple sites. It's not uncommon for sites to get hacked and have their details leaked. If you reuse passwords and usernames, then that one faulty link in the chain will lead to multiple accounts you own getting compromised.
