Today is the last day to move over to a Battle.net account should you wish to continue playing World of Warcarft.
Blizzard has said that it is now a requirement, per Cinemablend, and if you wish to play future titles like Diablo III and StarCraft II, you might as well go ahead and sign up because it is mandatory for those as well.
Battle.net stores all your account information and has a new communication feature and auto opt-in for upcoming Betas.
As a reward for doing so, Blizzard is giving away a free penguin pet:
“If you create a new Battle.net account after November 11 and merge an existing World of Warcraft account with it, you will still be able to receive the pet. However, please note that we plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future”, said Blizzard.

Beyond that date, all WoW players will need to log in to the game using a Battle.net username and password. Anyone who wishes to create a new World of Warcraft account will need to start with a Battle.net account from then on.
Serious business. Hit the first link for more.

Over on Battle.net, there is a StarCraft II Q&A, where the developers answered a few questions on the RTS.
There’s some interesting information in there, most of it you may already know.
What you may not have known, though, is that the game made use of 58 voice actors, and that “terrain sets are named after planets and there will be more flexibility to modify terrain sets in the final game”.
Head on over there now and read all about the post-game lobby and much more.

During its Battle.net BlizzCon panel, Blizzard announced that StarCraft II will allow players to put price tags on their created maps. Creators will, of course, see some cash for their hard work, but Blizzard didn’t give an exact percentage.
The hope is that this will encourage players to form small dev teams and craft complex maps — or even new gametypes. So whereas before, the cost outweighed any potential rewards these intrepid souls might reap, now they’ve got a real cash-money incentive.
If you’re afraid Blizzard just tossed a “You must have this much disposable income to play” sign in front of StarCraft II’s multiplayer, don’t panic. Blizzard compared its new storefront to the iPhone App Store in terms of how it’s hoping the distribution of free and premium content will emerge.
More as it comes.
