So you can't make real world money from this? Then who cares.

Money saved is money earned. Say if you got Diablo 3 and Wow. Your earnings from D3 Auction house will be the first thing blizzard draw from when it is payment day. So instead of drawing from your RL account it takes from your Battle net account. Voila you got 15 dollars you wouldn't have on your account otherwise.And if you don't got wow... Well then get off Wow insider and go buy your GF a plushie.

Some regions can use PayPal to transfer it into real money. USA is one. :)

You CAN make money off of this. You just can't have it if you put in on the balance. Anyway, money saved is money made ($15 a month saved is another $15 you wouldn't have had).

Well technically, if you play wow for 12 months and you use RL money to do so, you can in fact earn up to $180. That's not too bad, if you ask me. How much do you have to put up for the real money AH though? I have never played Diablo.

Any idea if the UK is one, PonTelon?

Actually, the Battle.net balance is a separate option from having the real money auction house profits cashed out directly through Paypal (or other services, depending on region). That's how I read it anyway.For example, if you don't want to connect a bank account through Paypal, you can still have your RMAH profits placed in your Battle.net balance and buy things from the Blizzard store. The FAQ did confirm game time too, btw.

Game time via a pre-paid card that is. It's not usable for a recurring subscription plan.
