Beginning April 2, 2013, you will only be able to log in to the Game or Website using your

We want to inform you that beginning on April 2, 2013, logging in to the game or website will require your Display Name. Email addresses will no longer be accepted; your Display Name will be the only accepted option.

This new change to the log in procedure is being implemented for several reasons. This change increases the security of our game authentication system, which helps continue to keep the game protected from many security threats including account takeovers.

In case you do not know your Display Name, simply:

It will be more secure. Just because you don't understand and/or you aren't privy to behind the scenes security features... boggles my mind.
