- Clan support
- Advanced friends list
- In-game chat and voice chat
- Enhanced cheat detection and punishment
- Web community overhaul
- eSports support and automated tournaments
#1 most wanted feature: not deleting accounts for inactivity :|
oh dude totally second that... replaying D2 right now and just thinking about the items I used to have pisses me off.
I think there is a high chance that characters will be stored forever. To facilitate this, you'll likely be limited to just one account created per cdkey with a limited number of character slots. All of this and all blizzard games will use a universal "Blizzard account" and we can see that functionality already being tested with the wotlk beta.
