I don't see why you have to be 18 when WoW's rating is Teen. I'm 17 and I'd really like this, but I'm getting a message that I'm not eligible. This sucks :/

Because it's credit card only, that's the only way you can make a commitment that blizzard can hold you by.

Actually on the Blizz FAQ it states that prepaid game cards count toward this as well so it's not strictly credit cards.However, commiting to 12 months (regardless of how you pay it) IS a contract, which you have to be at least 18 in most areas to enter into this kind of contract.

You are essentially agreeing to a legally binding contract that you will pay Blizzard $180 over the next 12 months. THAT is why you have to be 18. They can't make a legally binding contract with a minor.How solid is this contract? Great question for the Lawbringer! Mat McCurley! There's a column for you. :)
