Making passwords case sensitive won't do anything unless the user goes beyond minimum level security, because it's up to the user to do something like KlmStV867, instead of porsche. The user who uses porsche or something guessable like that won't use the case sensitive mix. They'll still get hacked, even if they had the option to use better password security.
In short... password security is a user responsibility, and people shouldn't blame Blizzard if they have guessable passwords.

but see the thing is, i can't recall any decent security barrier that uses case insensitive password layer.
if even that is not in place, what are the chances that they actually got a decent layer behind it to stop generator permutations?

I find this answer makes a lot more sense then the idea that a multi-billion dollar company hasn't figured out high school level security. As i said, if they have a system in place to deal with brute force hacking, then having case sensitivity is pretty unnecessary.
