Patch 3.3.5 is here, and with it comes the introduction of the RealID system, and many, many opinions about the use of it. While I thought the feature was interesting and well worth playing with on the test realms, I do enjoy my privacy -- and until Blizzard introduces an "invisible" setting for the RealID system, I won't be using it. Here's a collection of thoughts by others around the Warcraft blogging community regarding RealID:
- World of Matticus discusses why RealID isn't for him.
- The Stoppable Force has some information about RealID, and suggests that people stop with the righteous indignation.
- Too Many Annas shares some thoughts on privacy, RealIDs and roleplay.
- Miss Medicina talks about the Patch 3.3.5 patch notes, as well as the RealID system.
