So after the 1 free name change, there is no way to change your name?

As of right now, yes. They will eventually have a paid name change service in the future.

Not to bring back a dead thread....

I feel as though this wouldn't be that hard to implement vs what Blizzard would get out of it. Its been so long since that little box has said name change coming soon..... Its been sooooo long ><

So long indeed but that does not change the fact Blizzard does not care.

No. Last we heard, they don't even have specific plans to implement it, but its something they might do - the "Coming Soon" text is somewhat misleading.

At any rate, there is no new official information on it, sorry. :(

Why the hell can't I change my name on my game that I purchased, ontop of that; Why would I have to pay for something so minor?

1. You do get one free name change.
2. They don't want you to keep changing your name; they want you to go by one identifiable tag in the community.
3. By limiting name changes they hope to make you choose your name responsibly, not choose gibberish or immature names.

Those are the only reasons I can think of\remember.

I believe in order to be eligible for the name change, you needed to have purchased the game prior to them giving it to you... I could be wrong though, so don't quote me on that.

Please make an additional name change for a fee, I recommend about 8 bucks per each name change. I would just buy a new account but I will lose everything I earned like achievements, portraits etc. I don't mind my name too much anymore but I feel stuck.

It'll be the same as the current payment options, CC and eventually PayPal (I am assuming). You'll also be able to use the BlizzBucks from the D3 Beta and I'm also guessing they'll have some kind of gift cards eventually too.

I highly doubt it, unfortunately.
