Blizzard have always intended to offer a paid name change feature when it comes to StarCraft 2, but new work on their plates including the development of Heart of the Swarm has meant that this name change feature has slipped under the radar a few times.
To apologise for this, and to tide you over until it arrives, the company is now offering another free name change that you can take advantage of in your Battle.net account. “The small percentage of players who used the free name changes that we previously offered, the introduction of Battle.net Battle Tags, careful consideration of how character names will work with Battle Tags in the future, and our increasing focus on completing StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm all contributed to us deprioritizing the Paid Character Name Change feature,” wrote the team.
“The fact that we didn’t keep you updated when we deprioritized the feature was a mistake, and we aim to do a much better job of keeping you informed in the future.”
“If you’d like to change your character name, log in to Account Management and choose your StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty game license. On your game license screen a “Character Name Change” button at the bottom will initiate the request. After confirming that you’d like to change your character name, log in to StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, and you’ll be prompted to assign your character a new name.”
