I was expecting that to happen. Good, saved money.

I had thought the feature was going to indefinitely sit at beta stage like the old armory.

I probably won't use this. Then you'd find out how bad I am at this game... >.>

Unless of course, you need someone to be your court jester/whipping boy then I'm all in.

Who am I kidding, I'm in a guild with 250 other people and I tend to play alone. I NEEDZ FRIENDZ. Alliance Here!

Sadly I'm so sick of them I don't do 5 mans at all anymore :(

But yay! Glad they listened to people and kept it free after the beta testing was over, smart move.

Considering the backlash charging for it gave I can't say I'm surprised. While I have no idea how technically complex it was to actually implement, from the consumer standpoint it doesn't look like it adds that much more to the features we already had. We could already communicate with Real ID friends across realms, and we could already group with people across realms through LFD. So all this appears to do is add an extra communication feature to Real ID, hence the backlash.

My guess is they couldn't figure out any premium features to add to it thus we have no premium charges.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

Or they just realized that if they gave it for free for so long and then told "ok you can't use it anymore now you has to pay!" The rage would have been....

Raid Finder
The Raid Finder will be introduced in Patch 4.3, it will work like the Dungeon Finder.


They could plan to add Real ID raid groups as a premium feature seeing they are planning cross realm raiding.

Can you realID people across locales? Like can a US player add a KR player to his realID?

I'm glad they went with making it free, but I'm still not going to RealID people I don't know IRL.

/sigh at real name requirements.

I really dont get how thats so negative that you cant have guildmates on the list...
You scared someone will come and look you up? Check your facebook?
Obviously depending a bit on your name, but i bet theres multiple people with your name.

Giving out your email adress is prolly 10times worse than just a name that you cant put into context anyway.
And if thats the case, ask them to give their email adress, and you add them. (i guess theres some way to find their email adress maybe, but atleast it doesnt show up all the time)

I have some people ive talked to only once or twice before i added them on realID.
I got lots of guildmates, and havnt met a single one IRL.
Theres lots of people i trust in wow that ive never met IRL.

Pff there's about 20 people on facebook with my name! Not that it matters since i sign myself as Worldie Feard, but I found it funny.

I dunno about Psiven, but I have a fairly unique name in the US, and people get very weird.
