New Features

  • /whois (player): Locate player on Battle.net
  • A "/whois" command has been added to the Battle.net chat area. This command allows players to find other players no matter where they are on Battle.net. This will allow you to find a friend (or enemy) whether they are in a chat room or in a game. You will receive the name of the game or chat room that he/she is in. If that player is not logged on, you will receive a message to that effect.
