WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Friendly reminder from WoW.com: Convert to Battle.net now!

In two weeks time, on November 11 (November 12th for EU folks), all World of Warcraft players will be required to have a Battle.net account in order to access the game. The reminder has been counting down on the game's log-in screen for the past week, urging players to create an account on Battle.net merge it with their World of Warcraft accounts, with the promise of a cute little penguin to sweeten the deal. As if the threat of being unable to play the game weren't enough.

Blizzard has big plans for their new Battle.net upgrade, which they announced during BlizzCon 2009, and the mandatory merge works towards their long-term goals for all their games. Exciting features such as cross-realm, cross-faction, and even cross-game chat will be part of the new Battle.net, which some people have pointed out is reminiscent of XBox LIVE. Of course, we at WoW.com are dedicated to making sure you make the merge because aside from wanting our readers to cozy up to monochromatic, flightless birds, having them locked out from the game we talk about on the site all the time is kind of a lose-lose situation for everybody.

So hey, two weeks to go. Merge that baby.
