Paid name change is not what we need. The reason why you are upset is because you are wanting a name change specifically to put the clan into the name. Example, Bobo joins clan RH to become RHbobo.

Let's not compare this game to WoW because WoW already has a system where characters can create, disband, invite, kick, and switch guilds for free. They do not have to pay every time they switch to a new guild. The clan will appear below the players name as soon as he joins the guild. Likewise, once he leaves, or is kicked from the guild, the players name stands alone.

That is what SC2 needs. A clan system much like D2 and Warcraft 3 (If I'm not mistaken) had. Don't get me wrong, having a paid name change is a great idea and should be implemented. However, there should be a clan system that does not penalize you for wanting to express your clan within your name without paying. These two things should be different.

I propose a system where you have a name. You join a clan and the clan automatically ends up in front of your name in brackets. Example, Bobo joins clan RH. His new name shall be displayed as [RH]Bobo. This way, there is a discrepancy between what clan you are in and your name. Furthermore, it does not penalize you for switching clans or wanting to be part of a new clan.

More examples: [oGs]MC , [Liquid]Jinro , [EG]Huk, Etc...

Name change we can do without, Clan option and the functions that come with it is what is needed. If you want a name change then you should have to go out and buy another copy, a name should be something meaninful to you, be it funny, inspiring, or just "cool". if you picked a lame name thats your own damn fault, consider yourself lucky that bliz atleast gave one free name change.
