Lee, I can think of several options off the top of my head. Blizzard signed a deal with facebook, the only way that will work is if they tie your in game name to your real name for use in facebook. There probably have been several problems over the years due to accounts being virtually anonymous, by starting this up in a seemingly innocuous way it makes future changes more tolerable by the player base. Blizzard doesn't like account sharing or selling, with Real ID enabled it makes more obvious when that occurs. Blizzard probably has several future game features designed with Real ID in mind... Maybe a iPhone Premium App of some sort. Just guessing. By starting with this and sticking to it the way they have, it's saying that Real ID is important to Blizzard, which scares me. Don't get me wrong, the x-game, x-realm chatting is aweome and I wantz it!! But it is very dangerous to use Real ID.
