Oct 30, 2009 World of Warcraft Battle.net Conversion Coming
Just a reminder: As we mentioned a couple weeks back, on November 11, 2009, all current World of Warcraft players must merge their World of Warcraft accounts with a Battle.net account in order to log in to the game. As our way to say "thanks" for taking a moment to go through the process, all accounts that upgrade to Battle.net will receive a brand-new penguin in-game pet. On November 11, all World of Warcraft players will need to log in to the game using a Battle.net username and password, and anyone who wishes to create a new World of Warcraft account will need to start with a Battle.net account.

Creating a Battle.net account is simple and free. To merge your existing account with a Battle.net account and receive your penguin in-game pet today, visit here. For more info, check out the Battle.net site or read the FAQ.
