 - Blizzard, Battle.net, Activision, Real names, is for tombstones

Blizzard's done an about-face on its proposed move to make Battle.Net Forum users use their real names instead of their nicknames, in the face of overwhelming protest.

Thought by some to be a move by ActiBlizz to assuage public information laws in Korea, the announcement was made last week and has just as quicky been overturned. Once again nicknames and pseudonyms will be used on all Battle.net forums.

Bit of a shame that. We were looking forward to hearing whether Alan Funkwitch rage quit battle.net in protest or because people kept making fun of his monicker.
