Blizzard has issued an update to its Battle.net launcher that lets you add friends from around the world — though its own games will still be region-locked.
In an update added on June 9, Blizzard removed restrictions from the Battle.net launcher that prevented players from adding friends outside of their home region (thanks, Wowhead).
Starting June 8, 2021, your friends in Europe, Americas, and Asia will be merged into a global friends list.
Any friends that you do add that come from another region will have their location listed in your friends list, under their user name.
