How to Submit a Fake ID

Since Blizzard's tech support involves submitting a Government ID (If you're an adult), a birth certificate (If you're a parent of a minor or teenager), driver's license, learner's permit, passport, health card (for Aussies, New Zealanders, and Canadians), or a voter registration card in order to delete your account. Here's how to submit a fake ID:[15][16][17][18]

Government ID

Make the ID in photoshop, for some reason they also accept it. Make everything fake: picture, address, date of birth, issue date, expiration date, and so forth, except for your real name (Due to it being attach to your account). Note: You have 30 days to review the picture and to approve or deny, otherwise your account is not deleted.

Birth Certificate/Adoption Certificate

Photoshop a fake picture in order to fake a birth certificate, but make sure that the DOB incidates that you're a minor. It has to look the part, so that way Blizzard Entertainment will accept.


If Tech Support Asks

If the customer tech support guys request what's your reasons of why you want a permament account deletion, POLITELY clarified that you're never supporting and buying from them, because of the Hearthstone incident, the weibo "We're sorry, China." apology, that Blizzard supporting a foreign government body that's horrible to both foreigners and natives (especially regarding free speech and human rights), and being hypocritical towards the West. Also, POLITELY means professional language, little to no cursing.

For BlizzCon2020 and Beyond

Buying BlizzCon tickets, including the virtual ones, are final. Though one can resell tickets at AXS.com.[19][20]

For Late Timers, Don't Give Up


Blizzard disabled all four methods of authentication, just to stop gamers from deleting their accounts.[21] For now and for some people, the private information, like Government IDs, will be invalid, even using the SMS, e-mails, and the physical key chain authenicators.[22][23]

EU CITIZENS

Since the Irvine game company refuses to process GDRP, physically mail your complaints to Blizzard and the politicians in your countries.[24][25]

US AND CANADA

If Blizzard refuses the requests for account deletion, since they totally want those Government ID, one should file complaints to the Better Business Bureau. Especially they denied after submitting, will give one good reasons to file a complaint to the BBB.

Better Business Bureau

Reminder/Note: If one needs help with filing claims with the BBB, get depressionxdepressed, a redditor. He will even make a guide on how to submit claims to the bureau.

FOR MINORS

Ask your parents and guardians for help when filing and that you're protected under your country's laws. Plus, you would not get into trouble for filing and also as your guardians are made to be if the services are okay and legit. But if they allowed you to use credit cards/debit cards to purchase anything from Blizzard Entertainment, then the adults have a right to file the suit. Also, it's because the game company regards the account as belong to YOUR guardian/parents.
