Well, it's a small victory, but one nonetheless. According to this article, the Real ID thing for both WoW and the upcoming Starcraft 2 forum launch has been scrapped because of the incredibly negative responses on the internet by fans. They have decided that "now is not the time" for the Real ID system and that in SC2 we will be able to post under our character name.
It's happened - we've been listened to. Now, hopefully, they'll know we mean business and maybe try and change some of the other things that have rubbed us the wrong was as long-time Blizzard fans? Who knows.
