Avoid eye contact with friends.
Battlenet, infamous and trustworthy Blizzard service, is getting an often-requested feature soon. Did you ever pop online just in the mood to play a game of Starcraft or World of Warcraft and not wanting to be noticed by your clan, guild, or friends? Then you'll like the Appear Offline option coming soon.
In the coming months, we're planning an update to Battle.net that will give you more control over your online presence when playing Blizzard games. Soon, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, and Diablo III players will be able to select "Appear Offline" as one of their Battle.net social-status options (along with Available, Busy, and Away) for those times when they want to wander Azeroth by their lonesome, dominate the galaxy in radio silence, or slay demons in solitude.
The feature will be spaced out depending on the game - they expect it in Diablo III in the 1.0.5 patch, and coming to WoW and SCII after their upcoming expansions.
