I've already converted my WoW account to a Battle.net, ofc to get Grunty :)
I have no idea why people see this so negatively. Why wouldn't you merge? Are people just QQing just for fun? Why would someone quit WoW because he/she doesn't want to merge? The conversion is a 2 minute thing to do. (unless you leave it to Nov 12 and the servers are stuck while zillions are trying to convert) It doesn't cost you anything and it doesn't bring any issues with it. Unless you are lazy and you think typing a few more characters to your login screen is a big issue. In my case it also removed the odd "Authenticating..." bug that me and my friends had. Plus you get a penguin!
The day Bnet mergers came out I merged my account, I have had no problems with it ever since. I'm glad I merged to my email. I even got Battle-bot and Grunty, and a Authenticator added too (iPhone FTW!)
This post was from a user who has deleted their account.
Well, I don't like this, but fine, I tried to create a Battle.net account to link it to my WoW account.What happens? Whenever I try to create one, I get a screen with "an error has occurred". Does anybody else have this as well?
I dont see the point in pets tbh. I mean, ok people collect them. But for others they're pointless items. (for me anyway)
Not a problem for me, I merged my account after I was hacked. I'm thinking it was one of my friends screwing with me, but still.
Honestly, if you don't merge your account out of fear of having less security, then spend the money to get an authenticator. It gives an extra level of security to your account and makes it even harder to get through.And even if you won't do that at least get some anti-virus.
