    Re: Non Battle.net Accounts offline on November 12th

    Being on battle.net does not make your account any easier to hack.. If you are the original owner of the account and have all the real original information your account can never be stolen. The only people who dislike this are buyers/sellers of wow accounts. Bnet is awesome and will be even better! People saying It's not broken don't fix it blah blah. The correct terminology would be "It's not perfect, lets make it better". Its like arguing with someone who wants to upgrade the gas mileage your car gets, for free, all you have to do is a fill out a 5-10 question sheet. I mean really? I for one enjoy my 15 MPG TBH FK HYBRIDS YO...................

    Non Battle.net Accounts offline on November 12th
    Apparently, if you didn't merge your WoW account to a Battle.net account you won't be able to play the game after November 12th. The good news is, you get a free penguin!

    A: After November 12, 2009, you won’t be able to log in to the game unless you merge your account with a Battle.net account. You will need to log in using your Battle.net account username (your email address) and password.

    Q: How can I obtain the penguin pet?
    A: Once you’ve successfully merged a World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account, the penguin pet will be sent via in-game mail to all existing characters on the merged World of Warcraft account, along with all future characters on that World of Warcraft account. Players who merged previously will also receive the pet this way.

    Q: Do I need to merge by a certain date in order to receive the penguin?
    A: We plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future, we haven’t determined exactly when just yet.

    Q: If I create a new World of Warcraft account, will I receive the pet?
    A: Only existing World of Warcraft accounts that merge with a Battle.net account are eligible to receive the penguin pet. If you create a new Battle.net account after November 11 and merge an existing World of Warcraft account with it you will still be able to receive the pet. However, please note that we plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future.
    The penguin will most likely be Oswald (also known as Mr. Chilly, he was renamed in the latest PTR build of Patch 3.3 but Oswald is a nice name too), Mr. Chilly was the pet given to US beta testers who converted their account to Battle.net when the feature was on WotLK beta servers. Please note that Pengu was also changed in Patch 3.3 and doesn't have his scary red eyes anymore.

    so now I gona have 2 pengu's =O
    alll the time farming kal'uak rep wasted xP

    Great excuse to quit the game, why the fuck do i want to bother to sign up for a crappy battlenet account when my current u: and pw: works PERFECT.

    I don't.

    Thnx.

    Bye Bye Blizzard, you suck
    Oh no, you have to spend five minutes making a battle.net account. FIVE MINUTES of your life wasted.

    Stop whining, this isn't a big deal. And Blizzard is giving you a motherfucking penguin pet for typing a couple of words in. There is no reason to complain.

    I merged my account last November and nothing has happened to me. It's just as secure, if not safer, as a regular WoW account.

    Your account is only as safe as your PC is.

    If you have a decent virus scanner and frequently run programs such as "Spybot - Search & Destroy" then you should NEVER get your account hacked.

    The reason people get hacked is because they either don't have a virus scanner or they do and choose to ignore warnings that the site they're visiting isn't safe.

    Seriously, if anyone is thick enough to buy gold, accept a "free mount promo" or freely give away all their account info because an email has asked for it they DESERVE to be hacked.

    Use some common sense when you visit sites and if it looks like a dodgy site dont click anything on the page, hit Alt-F4 to force the window to shut.

    Better to be safe than sorry.

    Failing that, pay a measly one-off fee of £5 and get an authenticator. It'll cover you for ANY game of Blizzard's that you hook up to your battle.net account.

    Just remember, think twice before opening that attachment from freegolds4u.com (no idea if it's a real site, just an example!)
