Custom Profile Avatars

At the moment we only have a choice of pre-selected characters from the games within the battle.net app itself. This doesn’t allow us to fully personalise our accounts when playing/chatting. It would be great if we was able to select our own images for use on our profiles.

The issue with this suggestion is that, if you can upload your own image, Blizzard would likely be expected to implement the option to report other players’ avatars and to moderate them based on those reports.

Also, I’m not sure I’d really like it if half my friends’ avatars were random anime stuff. Even avatars that aren’t objectionable can be a bit ‘off’ thematically.

any update on this?s

Youre so right mate That is a must! Does battlenet want to be behind on a simple thing like this? It shouldnt be difficult to develop it. Maybe import an image from your twitter account or suchlike

I don’t even think they need to allow custom avatars partly for reasons already mentioned but if they could be more expansive in their character collection of choose-able options then even that would be greatly appreciated by the fan base. For instance I currently main a Mag’har Orc Shaman and so I wanted something very thematic and the best I can choose is either Thrall (which doesn’t work for obvious reasons) and then a red eyed/fanatic looking blood-lusted Mag’har Orc… Please Blizzard, you should at least please cover a female and male version of each class and race that are highly popularized (BE Paladin, Orc Shaman, NE Druid, etc). Thanks for reading, cheers!

what if your an artist? find vectoravtech on soundclo** the second post. I created the photo and tweaked a caustic demo named: SawSynth Demofourr

To the person that said they would have to monitor the avatars, they really don’t. All they need to do is have a report button, and then it can be treated like certain steam games. It gets sent to a TRUSTED person in the community to review it and say if it is good or not.

I would love to see custom avatars steam does it why cant battle.net i don’t really like the avatars thats in battle.net playstation doesn’t use custom avatars but at lest it will let me use my playstation profile pic for me and my close friend to see and the avatars for others to see at least make a system like that because i like the idea of customizing my profile to my liking i really hop blizzard sees this

It’s pretty hilarious that this is an actual thread. This “desktop app” is so limited socially, I wonder why it even exists.

Battle.net of the 90s had more functionality than what we currently have. They had chat rooms, channels, and the ability to make your own channels. They had avatars displaying character armor, et al. in the channels themselves.

What is the longterm goal of this thing? Lol Do they even have any goals, let alone a timeline on which to achieve them? It took what, 5 years to even get a simple thing added like the Appear Offline function?

I feel like they have one person working on this thing, and it’s just a rotating intern learning app design on the fly; like a person actually sitting in some basement office reading a manual. That or they’ve got one of the janitors working on it. :joy:
