The need for complex Passwords

Firstly: I understand that, if a hacker already has your Password, he/she is into your Account without a problem.

However, what I don't understand is.

Why the need for a Complex Password?

They say that the Hacker's Computer can try billions of Passwords until it alights on yours and then it can access your PC.

Excuse me, but am I being too simplistic in suggesting a limit to the number of attempts at a Password. Would not that particular Hacking problem go away if the Account was locked after 10 attempts and then simply unlocked 1 hour later. No need for any complicated procedure or new Password.

Just lock the Account for an hour, or maybe two, and then re-open it with the same Password.
