BattleTag™ Free Name Change Update

1 2 3 7 Next
During the Diablo III Open Beta Weekend in April, a number of players opted to use their one free BattleTag nickname change in order to try to participate in the beta test. We recognize that in their excitement to try to get into the game, some players did not fully realize how BattleTags would integrate with Diablo III or that the number of free changes was limited, and they ended up choosing nicknames that they weren't happy with.

To help address these concerns, we've done a one-time refresh of the free BattleTag name change feature on all accounts, so that everyone once again has one free BattleTag name change to use at their discretion.

This means that if you already used your original free change, you will now have another opportunity to change your BattleTag nickname. If you did not use your free BattleTag name change or have not yet created a BattleTag, you will still only be able to change your BattleTag once for free.

To set or change your BattleTag nickname, log in to Account Management, head to the Account > Summary page, and look for the Create or Change option under Account Details. As a reminder, BattleTags aren't unique, so you can pick any name you like as long as it adheres to the BattleTag Naming Policy. For more information, see the BattleTag FAQ and website page.

Remember, your BattleTag serves as your public identity when playing Diablo III, meaning you'll be identified in groups and in chat by your BattleTag -- choose your BattleTag wisely!
Id rather the connectivity issues be fixed. I bought the hard version of this at an EB games and have had nothing but issues with 3007 error and being booted every 4 minutes. IT IS NOT ON MY END. Please fix this so some of us who dished out 60+$ can actually play the game. I've done all your trouble shooting and it still sucks.
Always been a fan of diablo and WoW but im a bit disappointed.

oh so i can change it? cool cause i think mine had some numbers attached to it that meant **** all to me. thank you blizz!

There are always numbers, it's an identifier that's automatically added.
You know, not everyone there is capable of fixing connection issues. If the marketing team is helping out on other problems, more power to them! Not everyone is a Network Engineer or Programmer. So thank you, whichever team you are a part of, for doing YOUR part to make the players as happy as possible after a bumpy road.
I been playing off and on with little problems, and that's not what this thread is about.
Removed comment as the URL issue has been fixed.

Glad to see a free name change!
The Blizzard Terms of Use for Battletags states "Numerical identifiers are randomly assigned and cannot be modified" so no matter what name you have, there will alwasy be an end tag with numbers
What if I like mine now but don't a year from now, is this a limited promotion or am I able to save this opportunity?
