    From Blizzcon:

    http://www.blizzard.com/blizzcon/recaps/battlenet-panel.xml

    In summary... free to use if you buy a bnet2 game (e.g. SC2, D3), player ranking and matchmaking system to match players by skill, marketplace for user-generated content like custom maps, achievements, social networking features, real ID system so you can choose to make your real ID visible across all of your characters, old bnet1 games will eventually be updated to support bnet2, special D3 bnet2 features to be announced later.

    Sounds cool. I like the real ID feature.

    It depends on how they are implemented, but I can't imagine any meaningful achievements for SC2 that wouldn't influence gameplay (which would be bad).

    That's exactly what I'm worried about. Achievements that influence gameplay would be awful.
    I'll cry if they add achievements for SC2 that are along the lines of "Mine a lifetime total of 1,000,000 minerals" or "As Protoss, win a match using only Dark Templar"
