i haz penguisn eggz doesz youz has eggs? WHAT! NO! GET ONEZ NAI! http://www.battle.net/
Do eet!Also, why can't I quote Malgayne?
Its like, the world is ending, but its not. And people are frantically running about and worrying about nothing. And crazy things are happening, like free penguins, and now Blues are even PuGing!perhaps it is the end of the world (of warcraft).
For those of you who want their Unhatched Mr. Chilly, today is your last day to sign up!Isn't it more accurate to say "For those of you who want to continue playing the game"?
No, because you can still merge at a later date. You just won't get the penguin.
I predict tomorrow will be hell for all blizzard customer service reps. All the angry players who didnt merge will swarm the call centers and the official site in droves. This will begin a chain of events that will lead to the end of the world as we know it. Just like the Mayans predicted.
What's this all about? Merge what?
Get your WoW account merged onto a Battle.netI can has quote Malgayne?
No, because you can still merge at a later date. You just won't get the penguin.I think you're a bit confused over the timing of this EDIT: In fact, it strikes me that this blog's whole inception is based on a misinterpretation of the original blue post about it:Q: What happens if I don’t merge my World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account?A: After November 12, 2009, you won’t be able to log in to the game unless you merge your account with a Battle.net account. You will need to log in using your Battle.net account username (your email address) and password.Q: How can I obtain the penguin pet?A: Once you’ve successfully merged a World of Warcraft account with a Battle.net account, the penguin pet will be sent via in-game mail to all existing characters on the merged World of Warcraft account, along with all future characters on that World of Warcraft account. Players who merged previously will also receive the pet this way.Q: Do I need to merge by a certain date in order to receive the penguin?A: We plan to remove the ability to get the penguin pet at some point in the future, we haven’t determined exactly when just yet.Q: If I create a new World of Warcraft account, will I receive the pet?A: Only existing World of Warcraft accounts that merge with a Battle.net account are eligible to receive the 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.Bolded for emphasis. Source.The 11th is the last day on which you're able to play WoW without having a Battle.net account. It is not the last day on which you're able to get a pengiun.
You should add that it's http://eu.battle.net for european players, else you'd get American maintenance plus the european one.
No, because you can still merge at a later date...If you want to be able to play the game after tonight at 11:59pm, then I'd highly recommend people merge their account(s) NOW....Oh and don't expect to be able to see exactly when your game time expires on the new Battle.net account management page, if you pay by game cards! All it says is the account is active for :60 days...
