Battle.net Penguin Pet For Warcraft Players

Last week Blizzard announced that all Warcraft Players will be required to setup a Battle.net account and merge their Warcraft account over. Here’s a snip from their post.

In preparation for the launch of these new features, on November 11, 2009, all current World of Warcraft players will be required to merge their World of Warcraft accounts with a Battle.net account in order to log in to the game. As our way to say “thanks” for taking a moment to go through the process, existing World of Warcraft accounts that upgrade to Battle.net (including those that have already switched over) will receive a brand-new penguin in-game pet — after you’ve merged, he’ll be waiting for you in your in-game mailbox the next time you log in. Starting on November 11, all World of Warcraft players will need to log in to the game using a Battle.net username and password, and anyone who wishes to create a new World of Warcraft account will need to start with a Battle.net account.

In doing so users will get a free pet! While that makes me happy, because I’m a pet collector, the slow loading times of Battle.net does not. I spent a good part of 20 minutes just trying to setup an account.

Oh well.
