Jul 5th 2009 4:17PM This has been a long time coming:
Blizzard paid account transfer service. Basically buying an account from a friend, but Blizzard making a profit by changing all of the account information. This is what EA did with Ultima Online. At first it was forbidden to touch another persons account. They when EA realized that people are selling accounts like crazy and they cannot stop it, make a profit off of it.
Basically Blizzard has nothing to do with the actual way the account is purchased or traded. All they do is contact both registered users, use what ever means to confirm the people are who they say they are, and charge money to change the information on the account. When all is said and done, the person who purchased the account can sleep better at night knowing the transaction was completely legit and he wont wake up with his password recovered.
DO IT BLIZZ, YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON MORE MILLIONS
