So, I quit.
After my last post, I did manage to get in the phone queue and get put on hold for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
After that, I got some scrub phone tech nobody that told me that Blizzard would rather lose me as a customer than relinquish my real name on the billing form. I always make a point of spelling it out for them.
"So you're telling me you'd rather lose me as a paying customer than change the name on my account?"
They claim it's for account security, but anyone that chose the name Dickcunt Vaginapenis can go ahead and use that as their RealID while paying in gamecards since they thought ahead during account creation. I brought this up as well, and he confirmed that to be the case.
I've played WoW since closed beta, and been in the BC and WotLK betas. I have two active accounts that have been canceled. I've paid over 500$ in character transfers during my time, as I have so many toons that moving them all to a new server (they always migrate together) costs a few hundred dollars each time I do it. A ridiculous side note is that I originally signed up as Ramona Quimby on one account during creation, but they had no problem changing that during the migration to Battle.net.
With that being the straw that broke my back, I officially quit WoW. I imagine posting on the blog will slow down even more than it has, since WoW was the main thing I blogged about. That and Japan, and I live in America again, so... yeah.
Congratulations, Blizzard. Apparently, getting reacharounds from Facebook is worth killing WoW, or at least worth telling faithful users to fuck off if they want their name removed from their accounts.
And to think I wanted to work there once?
I suppose I'll sell the account, just to prove the point that their "account security measures" are a joke, and that anyone willing to pay game time in cards can take it over as easy as if the name was...
...well, Dickcunt Vaginapenis.
