Battle net tag change suggestions


#1

Okay so the name MVPM has been a username I used for many games ever since I was a child. But I have been growing tired of it for a while and I am no longer a kid so I need a manly man name so I can prove to others I am actually a manly man. I just found out today that appearly you can change your battle tag for free but only once. So I need to get this name change right. I thought why not get the forum’s suggestion?

I was thinking of changing it to something funny like “Rank 20 Police” or something, but the problem with that is the joke doesn’t work as well as I want to when I decide to play another blizzard games. It just sounds stupid. Plus jokes get outgrown quick, so it probably won’t be as funny when hearthstone dies.

I also thought of a cool name . The name “Fire bat” is both simple and cool and that gives off a threaten vibe when playing against them in hearthstone. So I thought of a couple of names with “adjective+noun.” (I guess fire is not an adjective)
“Paradoxical Void”- Cool, edgy, might not be taken but maybe a little bit too edgy and complex
“Troublesome Tiger”- Alliteration, cool name, might be taken

I thought about doing a person that has a cool position, like any of the clones from star wars( but they are probably all taken.
Like:
Commander Wolf
Captain Rex

Bad names- (DO NOT GIVE ME)
Dragon_slayer_32601- I don’t want numbers nor underscores unless it’s part of the name

The Black hand of the void- too complex, give me simple

Wardrum- what kind of person names their username Wardrum? DO NOT GIVE ME.

What do you think? I need a new name and need brainstorming powers.

(If you take any of my names I am coming after your family)

The very best kind, that’s what.

I wouldn’t even if you begged.

I think something like FilthyControlWarriorMain works well enough.


#3

I wouldn’t change it just because your name is in the 1xxx’s

Newer accounts are in the 10xxx’s even in the 100xxx’s +++

So I like having a low number because it shows how old your account is.


#4

Like the amount of characters?


#5

The # attached to your name.

MVPM#1120

If you notice newer accounts are all in the ten thousands ++

So it shows how old school you are, although some people may not give a sh!t


#6

oh really they change your numbers too? Ah, nvm. No name change I guess.


#7

of course it will give you a new one and it’ll be a very high number trust me

for some reason I like having a fairly low number.

I wish I had Bee#1


#8

I’m not sure about that. This one only goes back like 7 years and I’m #1200.


#9

7 years is as old as it can get.

make a new ‘‘Wardrum’’ account and see for yourself what number it gets :slight_smile:

Share the infos when you’re done please


#10

Okay, now I’m confused. Does that have something to do with the Bnet revamp from way back when?


#11

I checked, my alt which was made like 2 years ago have 5 digit numbers. All the people who are new to the game on my friend list did too. I am not changing. #1120 is good for me.
Dodged a bullet there


#12

All I know is the older your account is, the lower your numeric ID is.
I’ve never seen anyone in the hundred’s

So if you were to make a new account named ‘‘Wardrum’’ I guarantee you the number would be above 10,000.

Some people are above 100,000, especially with common names.

Though I don’t think the original numeric ID to your account had anything to do with the amount of people sharing the same name.

I don’t think there were 1200+ MVPM and Wardrum’s 7 years ago, those names feel way too uncommon.


#13

Mine is not as old as Wardrum. I started hs 5 years ago after GvG, still got a lower number then Wardrum, I am happy about this small victory for today.


#14

I wish there was a longer name limit. WeeWeeBojangles was too long. So i had to stick with Bojangles. Im not even being paid to advertise for them. Some of your suggestions are too long. Unless they changed the limit.


#15

You could try to make another account named MVPM and see what number you get.

Or do the same test with a name you’d be interested in.


#16

It’s interesting, I have a friend who just started playings like end of december 2018. Her battle net is an adjective and then her name #1455

(her name isn’t that common) (not that uncommon either, I would say it’s rare)

got any name ideas?

are 9 characters the limit?


#17

Supposedly 12, but I didn’t fact-check it.


#18

Maybe she had an account prior to starting playing HS ?


#19

no, she didn’t even know Blizzard Entertainment was a company. (Unless she’s lying to me…)


#20

Hmm I dunno then.

Her name is probably very uncommon.

I couldn’t find anything on how the numeric ID are attributed.
