Edit: Bravo to blizzard for admitting their mistake and providing a timeline for a fix. My sons are very excited to be able to play this weekend!
I’m extremely frustrated by the apparent SMS requirement of the new game update. I’m a blizzard gamer myself, and have a battle.net account that I use daily (Wow player here).
My two sons are minors. They do not have cell phones. They play (or used to play) overwatch on their Nintendo Switch’s. After the update, they’re unable to play because of the phone number requirement. My phone number is already in use on my account, so I cannot add it to theirs. My wife has a Battle.net account, and hers is in use there. What am I supposed to do here? Is the answer really that I need to go purchase two additional phone lines so that they can play? What?
Apparently the game that I purchased for them, Overwatch, is now dead an unplayable, and they cannot play OW2.
