New Zergotchi Authenticator – Blizzard Exclusive - April 1st/Joke!

Gone are the days when all you had to do was type in a boring six- or eight-digit code to log in to Battle.net or World of Warcraft. Blizzard Entertainment’s newest authentication system takes the next step in both Virtual Pet and Authenticator technology to provide you with the login experience of your life!

Combining a Battle.net Authenticator and a virtual pet into one seamless design, the Zergotchi will not only be an endless source of fun but will also make sure your account stays as secure and safe as ever – in style. Once attached to your Battle.net account, your Zergotchi’s life begins in its vulnerable egg-state. See it hatch! Be there when it evolves from a tiny, creep-spilling larva into a disgustingly cute Zergotchi, and experience the miracle of creation.

Feed it, play with it, care for it, and give it the love it needs to grow into the monster it was meant to be. Even better, it will display a new authentication code every time you ask. Be sure to keep your pet happy, though! If you don’t care for your little friend it will start begging for your attention – and if you let it get unhappy, it’ll start giving you partial authentication codes! Can you guess the missing digits? Yes, your Zergotchi is a playful little character.

  • Adds an additional layer of security to your account
  • Impressive 16-bit display
  • Grows according to your play-style
  • Intuitive, user-friendly interface

Countless different critter outcomes
Thanks to a unique piece of Blizzard technology - the Advanced Pattern Recognition Integrated Layer™ - your Zergotchi will be able to determine how often you logged in to which game and played with the different races in order to create your perfect little pet. Playing an orc in World of Warcraft and enjoying some StarCraft II matches as a Terran? Then get ready to meet your little orcish Marine buddy. Or what about an undead Dark Templar? The possibilities are endless!*
*Possibilities are not endless.

Make new friends
But there's more! With its integrated RL Friend Finder Sensoring System, the Zergotchi will bring your gaming experience to the next level. Whenever you’re near someone with a Zergotchi of their own, your little fella will light up and make a noise! What better way to make new in-game and real-life friends than when you are cooing over your little critters together?

    I didn't see it mentioned, but they also had a short area describing books and novels they were planning to make called 'Fledgling Heroes'.

    Here's a clip from the page:

    "We’re also working on a new collection of short stories to answer one of the questions we’re most often asked about our more famous heroes and villains—“But what were they like in their early years?” Discover the turbulent adolescence of popular faces like 13-galactic-cycles-old Zeratul as he struggles with his budding psionic powers, or join young Garrosh Hellscream as he deals with an absentee father and natural disasters on a planetary scale.

    Spend time with then-Warchief Thrall and Archmage Jaina Proudmoore in the warm summer days after the fall of Archimonde, when the mistrust between Alliance and Horde seems destined to fade away, and anything—anything—can happen.

    The Fledgling Heroes project is something that we’ve really wanted to do ever since we started making games, but we had to wait for the right time.

    And the right time... is now."
