    Now i know very little about what he can and can't do, but just bear that in mind, and also remember revealing your full name on the internet is never a clever idea anyway. And Gray Fox, your a douche.

    Great blog entry by Shade explaining why this has raised the ire of so many: An Open Letter to Blizzard ę Shades of Grey

    Öokay. Sorry. Little carried away. But thatís it, you get it? Thatís why I play. Thatís why my friends play. Because we like to come home from a long day of being John Smith or Jane Doe and get on the computer and MURDER SOME REALLY AWESOME INTERNET DRAGONS.

    We donít want to be John Smith.

    We donít want to be Jane Doe.

    The amount of people who cancelled subscriptions must have been alot ....

    Blizzard reverses RealID in forums.

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to take some time to speak with all of you regarding our desire to make the Blizzard forums a better place for players to discuss our games. We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums.

    It's important to note that we still remain committed to improving our forums. Our efforts are driven 100% by the desire to find ways to make our community areas more welcoming for players and encourage more constructive conversations about our games. We will still move forward with new forum features such as conversation threading, the ability to rate posts up or down, improved search functionality, and more. However, when we launch the new StarCraft II forums that include these new features, you will be posting by your StarCraft II Battle.net character name + character code, not your real name. The upgraded World of Warcraft forums with these new features will launch close to the release of Cataclysm, and also will not require your real name.

    I want to make sure it's clear that our plans for the forums are completely separate from our plans for the optional in-game Real ID system now live with World of Warcraft and launching soon with StarCraft II. We believe that the powerful communications functionality enabled by Real ID, such as cross-game and cross-realm chat, make Battle.net a great place for players to stay connected to real-life friends and family while playing Blizzard games. And of course, you'll still be able to keep your relationships at the anonymous, character level if you so choose when you communicate with other players in game. Over time, we will continue to evolve Real ID on Battle.net to add new and exciting functionality within our games for players who decide to use the feature.

    In closing, I want to point out that our connection with our community has always been and will always be extremely important to us. We strongly believe that Every Voice Matters, ( Blizzard Entertainment: Mission Statement ) and we feel fortunate to have a community that cares so passionately about our games. We will always appreciate the feedback and support of our players, which has been a key to Blizzard's success from the beginning.

    Same but for me this reverse may be good news but all I see is a delay. They will test the waters again at a later date.
    I think it's time for me to explore outside of Blizzard, this was merely the trigger.

    Come play DDO with us? Though, I think a new boundary is going to be set with this new game. I am only gonna play when my friends are on, I think. We can quest together but aside from that, not really interested in a new internet crack habit since I am finding out this week how fun life was before WOW.

    Re: World of Warcraft maker to end anonymous forum logins

    So much for all those around the net that said people complaining on forums wouldn't matter. That threats of canceled subscriptions wouldn't matter and that a negligible amount of people would have actually canceled subscriptions. That all the complaining and the protesting of it was for naught as they wre just a vocal minority that would not sway Blizzard.

    And Blizzard likely was intelligent in having their guy make the announcement and not have it being something out of Koticks mouth.

    A wonderful example if anything of the power of the customer in the digital age.

    I'll start downloading it now, will be fun without the EU/US barrier.

    I haven't logged on since the fiasco started and honestly after years of it, I felt relief when I cancelled my subscription.
    After raiding sometimes 5+ times a week 4-6 hours every time, I am not interested in anything heavy

    I also got myself a new PS3 =)

    To be honest I am shocked they listened.

    This would never EVER happened if it was EA.
