If you picked the wrong name or want to change your current SC2 character name, don't worry, Blizzard will be offering this service free of charge!

We wanted to let everyone know that in the near future we'll be allowing everyone a chance to change their chosen StarCraft II character name for free.

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. 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.

In addition, beyond this initial free name change, we’ll be launching a service similar to the one we offer for World of Warcraft which will allow additional character name changes for a fee. We'll announce more details on how the free name change and additional paid character name changes will be implemented in the near future.

You should do this for the armory. I just recently created a new armory account to match my SC2 profile. I'm starting from stratch now.

So this won't be forced on us right? I like my name atm so it won't just delete it but give us an option on the screen that we can click to change right?

This better not mean I have to re-add everyone again.

I've got 40ish friends so far and I don't want to have to do it all over again. I swear to god, if they wipe my flist I'm gonna tear them a new butthole.
I got the message. Looks like I'm going bye-bye :(

Duckload is Ra's sponsor. He did it because "white" was bleeped out in the chat I think so he just got annoyed... Which I find really really funny. But I will probably keep my name xD

I thought 'YourFather' was a funny name at the time. When i realized that there would be no name changing, the humor in the situation dwindled quickly and i realized the cruel nature of the wor-

Yes, a welcome a decision.

I heard that he changed his name to DuckloadRa because he is now sponsored by DuckloadRa. Apparently that is some kind of gaming team or company? I don't know I've never heard of it but Day[9] was saying something about it.

I only know the change because day9's daily, appenently saying White bleeped out but it being his sponsor explains the change...
