Name change after disconnect and other problems

Got my name changed after disconnect from battleground. Did not get a mail. i’d rather not pay for a new name when i did not change it in the first place. My name now is just generic: PlayerGMCTQH, very unoriginal.
If this is that my name was reported for profanity or something alike is there no warning? will i not get a token so i can change my name? Atleast tell me why my name was changed.

Also theres alot of problems in pvp when ppl are getting moved (for example by shield charge). When shield charge hits an enemy you drag the player along in to a wall, stuns them but then are you unable to attack them (primary attack). I assume its because they are not in that location as my device think they are cuze my char hits towards them but no dmg is landing. Then when my stun runs out they just magical teleport 2-5 meters away and start running again. Also when someone is charged with shield charge but not stunned against an object, they are dragged along but when i reach my destination they magical teleport back to the original place and run away. The spell seems to be very bugged and its very annoying trying to pull of some sweet moves when it dont work properly.

Hi, the same thing happened to me with my character name.
I just wanted to know, did blizzard ever fix this for you?

If you violated the naming rules by using something with profanity, sexual content, etc, then that is intended. It means you got reported and Blizz changed the character name. No, you don’t get a token to change it again.

If you feel an action was done in error you can appeal.

I strongly suggest you use your one free name change for your Battletag and change that too. Genitalia is not an appropriate name for Blizzard games.

The forum rules do a pretty good job of laying out the types of language Blizzard considered inappropriate. The same language rules apply to all Blizzard games and forums.

This section has some detail you might find helpful.

Obscene / Vulgar

This category includes both clear and masked language in posts, signatures, and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Are an inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
  • Are pornographic in nature

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

While these repercussions may seem harsh, we feel very strongly that this behavior has no place on the forums due to its extremely offensive and inappropriate nature.

Inappropriate Language

This category includes language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Are a mildly inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
  • Are otherwise considered objectionable
  • Bypass the Mature Language filter

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

Harassing or Defamatory

This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Insultingly refer to other characters, players, Blizzard employees, or groups of people
  • Result in ongoing harassment to other characters, players, Blizzard employees, or groups of people

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

Harassment takes many forms, and is not necessarily limited to the type of language used, but the intent. Repeatedly targeting a specific player with harassment can lead to more severe action. The idea behind this is to prevent any one player from consistently being uncomfortable in the forums.

Major Religions or Religious Figures

This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Negatively portray major religions or religious figures

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

National

This category includes language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Promote national hatred
  • Are recognized as national slurs
  • Allude to symbols of national hatred

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

Illegal Drugs or Activities

This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

  • Reference to abusing illegal drugs
  • Reference to performing illegal activities

If a player is found to have participated in such actions, they will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

Same thing happened to me, I had to pay for my name to be changed back and they wouldn’t refund me either. Be aware that your current name is up for grabs, so if it’s a popular one make sure you reserve it with an alt.

slaying demons by the hundreds having blood and gore all over the place. You’re char is literally drenched in blood from all the demons u slay is totally fine, but having a name that is that is just funny and not really offensive is totally off the table (and u will pay for it). Think about the kids. Oh my god, what world am i living in? I understand you have rules, but if u make a game like Diablo its just hypocritical to inforce some rules. Atleast in my case… according to me (im always right)

Same happened to me and hundrends of people. They ask you to buy orbs to change it again and then won’t refund you. Anyone can report you just because they lost a battle in the game or whatever.
