This is still going to be a major shit show when the access to name creation is granted.
The site is going to get DDOS'd by the amount of players logging into it to be first... The Access will not be granted exactly on time and I guarantee everyone that manages to get on will be creating the same names all at once.

Earth-Names will be gone instantly.... Bill, Bob and Cindy will be reserved and sold to someone later on who wants the name for £10 on ebay.
There will be 10's of 1000's of Sodapoppin's and Swifty's trying to get the name for themselves.

This won't turn out like everyone hopes.
I'm willing to bet some streamers get name access early and are under NDA about it.

Probably. I think the biggest streamers will get Blizz to safe guard to hold their name on select servers or something. Everyone else will be SOL.

Doesn't matter to me if a streamer gets his nickname. Wouldn't use one anyways.

I'm not a fan because they're requiring a subscription just for that.

When you combine it with Blizzard making the odd change from 'sub required to play beta, anyone can sign up' over to 'sub required to sign up AND play' it's pretty clear they're after a cash grab any way they can.

Not a fan.
Well, theyre dumping alot of money into it and haveing to pay for all the classic servers too. Its not a cash grab when now they have to maintain the retail wow and classic now. Especially when Retail might tank in numbers after classic or classic will fail and all that money they spent is now lost. Or both will continue to do great. Makes sense to make you have an active subscription so they can also see how many people are willing to continue paying to play.

Not a cash grab
This is some INCREDIBLY apologist BS. They are literally demanding we pay to beta test their crap- don't even pretend this is OK because 'they have servers to pay for' or 'they put a lot of work into it' or, the most absurdly rediculous argument you make, 'something in their company might fail!'

It's straight a cash grab, and to be frank, you need to take a long hard look at yourself, because you're part of the problem.

Fantastic post, the only reason the gaming industry is like this is because of the pathetic people that enable it.

The people that say all this stuff helps "servers" are just idiots that don't understand how cheap server hosting is now especially for big companies like Blizzard. I almost feel bad for calling them idiots but they should know they're useful idiots to companies that are trying to squeeze them for every dime they have.

Definitely will reserve my Undead Rogue alt with a name Deadalive. If it won't be available, will use Latvian version - Pusdzivais. :cool:

In the end might just go with Latvian version so my fellow dudes recognize me when I'm in BG's or elsewhere.
