I like the features associated with Real ID, I really do. In fact it's exactly what I like about steam games, I can chat to friends in and out of game, from any other game, and even join in on their games, but the price of activation with this system is exposing the billing name and email* (on thier account which like any other is highly sought after by hackers). This is far far FAR too much. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that this should be the case, as I said, I get all these benefits from Steam, through which I've played games with guildies I like, but none of them know my last name, none of them know my bnet email and 3 of them in the last month managed to get hacked. If I had a Steam friend, I would not need to worry about myself if somehow their account was compromised, but if I want the really useful features on bnet, for some reason I need to give up some control over my privacy and piece of mind associated with it.FuckThatShitI'd rather fork out for another micotransaction that enables this feature instead, almost any cost would be more reasonable, but for some reason the 25$ for a star pony got people more upset than this. It's sad that few seems to realise it.
