Ah yes, and the ragefest back and forth between players after it was all done, basically claiming that everyone who said they were gonna quit actually didn't, the ones who did claiming a victory for "the little guy".For my side, I canceled my subscription. It hurt. I was happy when the news came down that Blizz had decided to back down, and rewed a few days later, once I was sure they weren't gonna go back on that.I got a very-nicely worded email a few days afterward. I was amused and a bit surprised - it seemed those of us how had quit had made an impression. We weren't a majority by any stretch of the imagination and Blizz will never release any numbers concerning it, but it was enough to send a message.

I play with Gamecards or I would have cancelled my account.The issue of Gamecards always made me wonder how they were going to verify RealID on the forums™ anyway. Real trolls would just get troll accounts with hilarious fake names.

I took one for humanity as well. I was pleased when they went back on their decision-- although as Allison Robert noted, the language they used left it wide open for the future. I fully expect them to try to force Real ID on us again at a later date, figuring they can wear down the opposition. If they do, I'm ready to quit all over again.

Yeah, I got two of those emails, since I have two accounts, and canceled both. I eventually renewed both, but I left one in a lapsed state for a month, just to cost them a bit of money for being boneheads.
