ya it a little thing in part I am wonding if they made it that way or it more like a bug... I hoping they made it that way but I did not hear anything about it befor the game came out
I'm sure it was intended. Blizzard made people convert to a battle.net account and one of the stated reasons is so that WoW players can talk to their friends in Starcraft II when it is released. Cryptic is able to have the feature first since both STO and CO are live before Starcraft.
