Would everybody get the chance to change their username at the same time? Or would this option be possible when a player has/had his/her account for a year.
The option itself is easy but realizing it is very difficult cause of the behind the scene work.
Might work out in the future.

I'm pretty sure this has been suggested before. I haven't been here that long and I remember TFO or someone thundering on and on from above as to why it wouldn't work. Something about how lack set the database up in the beginning and not having forethought, and how it requires copious amounts of time to do so etc.

I agree, cool feature can't be that bad to link games together etc. Another site I play on each game u play can have different name. It's become detective work to find who is who, and slip in a new alias to play anonymously etc.

If your old name was still listed then it really wouldn't be changed. It would just make you look indecisive lol. Anyone I saw who changed their name I would be thinking: Identity Crisis?
