"Keep in mind that for someone to appear on the list, their Battle.net account email address must match their Facebook email address."Isn't that going to kill it for most people? I made a separate e-mail account for WoW (on purpose). I got the impression others did the same.It seems like they're widdling the people that will find this feature useful down to a smaller and smaller minority with every announcement they make.

Are you trying to argue that there were actually people who found this feature useful in the first place...?!

I was playing devil's advocate, actually.

Create a fake facebook with that email. That's what I'm going to do if the linking becomes mandatory.

Unless you think they're peeing on us, I'd suggest the verb "whittling" instead of "widdling."

you are in one of those pointless "friend" sites and want your "friends" to know you play wow, just say so. "I play World of Warcraft. want to talk to me in game? lemme know"Simple. no need for blizzard to create these stupid things

I completely missed that line and yeah it's pretty stupid. My battle.net account is registered with my business email: the one i use for all billing, banking and business related mail. I have a seperate email for social stuff, forum membership etc. Actually that's one of the things that annoyed me about the realID implementation... being forced to use my billing details to add friends etc.

Yeah, in fact I believe that's one of the things they (at least used to) reccomend for account security, use a completely separate email for your battle.net account. I know I have a "mywowaccount@gmail" adress JUST for that.
