“Blizzard Name-Change Induces Irony” or “Retarded Retort”
Blizzard announced almost a week back that Starcraft II players could change their name, if they so chose, and for free. While this isn’t exactly worthwhile news to report on, I thought what followed was pretty entertaining. On the official website, I came across the following comment to this announcement:
If this is the first time you are hearing about it, here is the information you need to get your free account name change:
All StarCraft II accounts have been granted one free name change. 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, simply log in to StarCraft II and you’ll be prompted to select a new one. Please be sure to use this name change wisely.
