    While on your main tell your friends the names of your alt's?

    A public list of all your alt's seems (at the moment) like nothing but a bragging list: "See all my alt's. When I'm on my Warrior I play my Warrior and, most importantly; the people I group up with, group up with my Warrior. Why would it matter to the current situation that I also got other classes?

    Sure I can see a scenario where I'm in a group on my Warrior and someone else is on his/hers Warrior too and we realize replacing one of us with a ... say Warlock would be better, then I could tell them: "Hey I got a Warlock too, his name is Bob, give me a sec to relog". No public list needed

    No, but when you're in a group with your friend you can look at the list and add any of their alts you're missing to your friend's list. That's what I was trying to get at.

    Friend 2 "Oh, if only I could've seen on some kind of note that you had a new toon."

    No, it's not my alts from classic, it's the toons I used to have in vanilla and Burning Crusade before battle.net was a thing.

    And in pugs I would probably inspect other people's notes while eating/drinking, yes. All I'd have to do is see what servers they were on.

    winning. This sums up the thread. As others a said, small QoL but not a necessary or important QoL, infact it could be a negative thing imho.

    On Topic, i think its a great idea. No other changes though - just this one, and flying, and thats it. Obviously LFR will be introduced for sure, so not really a change. #NoChanges

    So you expect them to undo the changes they have made? or you are no longer interested in the game and accept the changes are going ahead?

    We're talking about a possible note system to be usable in classic. Imagining the days before battle tag existed.

    So same thing you can do by just adding him to battle.net friends list? What stops other players from looking at that note? Why would anyone look at notes in first place?

    There is a lot of stretching logic happening here to justify something that already exists in better form. You present completely illogical case for it. The only logical conclusion is you made up that case, but you actually want feature for something else that has 0 to do with friends, like advertising your gold selling website or twitch channel.

    Chances of someone using that for spam is many times higher than someone using that for anything semi-useful.

    No that would be stupid, just tell your friends or hop on your other char to show them what youve done. You basically just suggested achievements/gearscore for Classic. Begone with you

    Me: Hey friend I just made a Warrior alt, his name is Bob, let me relog so you can add him

    My point with my post was simply: We can still talk to each other, real old-school I know, but then I hate seeing how talking to each other sometimes gets pushed aside by apps or social media "likes" and other crap like it. But then ... I'm not exactly a teenager anymore so that might be why lol

    We're speculating about a magical version of classic that doesn't have battle tag on it, to make it more classic-like. No battle-tag integration, but you can have that note thing to help your friends know about your alts.

    I would be so ok with moana deleting this thread so I could re-write what I meant,

    "I want a way for people to know what my toons were in actual vanilla and BC before battle.net existed."

    Just in vanilla I had max-level toons on:
    Thunderhorn Horde
    Uldum Alliance
    Proudmoore Horde

    BC:
    Arathor Alliance

    WotLK:
    Proudmoore Alliance

    It was such a good expansion after experiencing Vanilla.

    Friend 1: Would you really have checked every single character you saw online just to see if I left a note that it was me playing that character?
    Friend 2: Yes.

    You: Realizes that maybe Bob wasn't such a good friend to begin with and makes a mental note to talk to people a bit more before giving them stuff. Also you realize that a few bags and rough stones was, perhaps, a cheap price to pay to expose Bob as being an ass so early in your friendship.

    My point is still - forget about facebook posts and likes and what have you - talk to one another. Yes sure there is some compulsive liars out there and people who wants to exploit your kindness, but in my experience they are the few, rotten exceptions amongst a much larger group of people who are legit nice once you get to know them a bit

    Nah, the story was about someone just making up a character and impersonating Bob to ask his guildies for free stuff, then remove character. Bob is best.
