Thread: Terms updated

    Just want to clear this up. When they say 3 Bnet accounts they're not referring to wow accounts are they? Ie. 1 Bnet account can hold up to 8 wow accounts so this new rule would allow for up to 24 wow accounts (3 bnets) to have balance on them, correct? Also, I really wish theyd change that from 8 to 10.

    You're asking for clarification on the End User License Agreement—a legal document that was written as enforceable rules for the account/game. You're the one who is forced to agree to the document, and if it's to be held up to a legal standard, then don't you think Blizzard should be able to provide clarification of the text in that document?

    A basic, low-level GM cannot "choose" how to interpret the EULA as they please, but if they cannot provide the reasoning then they should elevate the ticket to someone who can, and you, as a player who must agree to the document in order to play their game, are allowed to ask them to do so. Certainly there is someone who works at Blizzard EU who has knowledge for why the text exists in the document, no? Or was the text written by a divine being and we cannot question it?

    It's because you can have as many Blizzard/BNet accounts as you want in the EU region.

    It's 100% clear that, up to this point and for the last 3+ years, Blizzard hasn't taken action against any multiboxers who own and operate more than 3 BNet accounts—most of these players do not hide the fact that they're using more than three Blizzard/BNet accounts at the same time. This would lead us to believe that the text written in the EULA must be a mistake with how it's written (and therefore interpreted). Does it make any sense that Blizzard, for the first 10 years, didn't have that line in the EULA, and then, all of a sudden, inserted that line, but didn't tell anyone that this was going to be a major change moving forward, and that players with more than three Blizzard/BNet accounts would need to contact support ASAP in order to get sorted?

    Does that make any sense? No, it certainly doesn't.

    I don't know what it takes to convince you, and I honestly don't know what's so difficult about submitting a ticket and asking for clarification. In fact, it's so easy to do that I've gone ahead and done it for you. I don't expect that the US support will be able to help me with a question about the EU EULA, but it's worth a shot because debating this is abso-f'ing-lutely tiresome.

    I don't know how many times I have to repeat this in this thread... it's not a new rule. All of my prior replies in this thread have stated this and provided proof that it isn't a new rule—it's been present in the EU EULA for 3+ years and has never been enforced.

    With that said, yes, assuming that Blizzard EU has an actual reason for holding individuals to only three registered BNet accounts, then you can only have up to 24 WoW accounts, which is why I said, in a prior reply, that it would affect < 1% of the already < 1% of the playerbase (outside of D3 4-boxers).

    Technically, Battle.net accounts already hold 10 WoW accounts, although they are broken into sections:

    • 8 Retail
    • 1 Alpha/Beta
    • 1 PTR


    Regardless, I do agree that it'd be nice to be able to 10-box from the same BNet account.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    In regard to your response to me, chill. I never questioned anything about the rules or it being new or not like the other guy has been. I was just trying to verify this rule applied to Bnet accounts and not individual wow accounts. Sheesh.

    PS: Ok I see I did technically say new rule but I only really skimmed this thread and was just asking that simple question. Excuse me for not reading every response of yours and just commented based on the thread title
