how the hell do i add battle tag

Customer Support
getting reeeeeeeeally frusterated. i made my own battletag, and i have my friends. HOW DO I <removed> ADD THEM?!!!?
in game : social pane / add friend / enter BattleTag ?
As far as I know, the numbers are added automatically - so you just need to create a battle tag without numbers (I could be wrong though).

no it says thats only for player names and email addresses. i tried entering several battle tags in there and non of them work. i do them in this format: Example#1234


I'm not sure what you're doing wrong, but I just tried to add my own tag (Karrek#1587), and it told me I cannot add myself, meaning the battle tag system does indeed work.
You need your friend to tell you what their Battle Tag is including the numbers. Then you enter that in the field. Works for me.

Numbers are added automatically when you create a Battle Tag. You have to know the numbers on your friend's Battle Tag to friend him.

Well, Alethìa beat me to it.

Just about everything everyone needs to know about Battletags is in the FAQ. :)

The numbers also show in your account management. Just an FYI.
You should also be able to right click a person's nameplate, hover over "Add Friend", then select "Add BattleTag Friend".
So I am trying to add someone and i can not can some please explain the process no links please. All the links i read did not help.
Well, the link explains how to do it, explaining how to do it is a moot point. You just have to add the battletag, battle.net account email, or charactername-server to add them to your friends list.

For the battle.net tag and real id friends though, your friend has to approve the request before they show on your list.

You also have to make sure your communications preferences allow for battle.net tags or real id use.
