Free StarCraft 2 Name Change Coming Ahead of Paid Name Changes

Everyone will be getting one free name change for his or her StarCraft 2 character name from Blizzard soon, though Blizzard has only committed to the "near future" in terms of when this will be available.


"In some cases, people chose character names that don't represent their usual multiplayer nicknames, as they were unaware of how the character names were being used," explains Blizzard. "It's important to us that everyone is represented by a name of their choosing in their multiplayer games, ladders, and on the forums and community site."

This will not, however reset ladder statistics. Additionally, Blizzard will eventually introduce paid character name changes like with World of Warcraft.
