You guys are off your rockers.
If it based on the "Real ID" system, doesn't that mean I would be required to share my Real ID information - my real-life e-mail address - in order to participate?
So basically, IF I am willing to share personal data with complete strangers AND I'm willing to pay for "premium services" on top of my subscription fee THEN I can get a tool that might make /LFD less bad?
That's quite a deal.
Please remember that the following about Real ID http://us.battle.net/en/realid/Whom should I add to my Real ID friends list?
Real ID is a system designed to be used with people you know and trust in real life – friends, co-workers and family – though it’s ultimately up to you to determine who you wish to interact with in this fashion. When you become Real ID friends with another player, you will be sharing your real name and opening up new communication options with that player. In addition, players who are Real ID friends with that player will be able to see your name in a “friends of friends” list, which allows people to be able to quickly send Real ID friend requests to others they may know.
Just so everyone is aware, we are continuing to watch comments in this thread as well as compile questions so that we can answer them for you at a future point in time. As the original post said, there is much more that still needs to be worked out before we can answer all of your questions.
As always, please post constructively and refrain from Forum Code of Conduct violations.
Well apparently, our subscription fee is not enough to pay for development of new content.A lot of things in the game is "optional", should they put a fee on that also? RDF (Find a group like in classic), Auction House (do face-to-face trades), the list can go on...
Have you ever wondered why 6 years and there is no subscription fee increase? This is why, these optional services shave off the inflationary increases.
It is optional, you do not have to get it. You can always play this game normally like how it was in classic. Group with people on your own server.
That being said, they need to come out with content lot faster than now.
World of Warcraft now costs twenty dollars a month.
As well as purchasing the expansion packs to play them, an additional 5$ is tacked onto the monthly payment per xpac installed.
Raids now cost 2$ per instance per character per month.
Ice lance damage has been increased by 5000%.
How jocular this is, this is along the same lines as the stuff we are seeing here. Honestly blizz, more free stuff is what brings the players in. Make this free and you might notice a large quantity of players coming back from rift because they never could pay for realm transfers, but now they can at least play with their friends.
Because maybe Neth doesn't know what else to say? She can't just say, "Oh, you're right... it's free now." I don't think she or Zarhym or Lylirra have that power.05/17/2011 01:09 PMPosted by HoleeAfter all the people are asking why you are making this term a paid service, why do you choose to answer these questions that are basic knowledge about Real ID? This is ridiculous.
