Just ahead of next week’s Overwatch launch, Blizzard has announced a free BattleTag update for all users. For those unaware, the BattleTag is your identifier on across Blizzard’s games — including Starcraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch.
We often see feedback with requests to update your BattleTag, and as we move into a new universe filled with soldiers, scientists, adventurers and oddities it’s important that you have a nickname that represents you!
Like your current moniker? No problem! You will continue to keep and use your existing BattleTag without needing to take any action. Want to change it up? Visit your Account Management Dashboard, and click the Change link under your Account Details to the right of your existing BattleTag! Players on your Battle.net Friends List, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and Overwatch will see the update soon after the change.
So if you’ve been stuck with a BattleTag you don’t like, now’s your chance to try and change it to something else. Blizzard also mentioned requests to change these more frequently is something players are asking for and they will be looking into options down the road to possibly allow gamers to do so.
Are you going to be changing your BattleTag on Battle.net? If you do, be sure to let those on your friends list know! Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook what you think about Blizzard’s move to allow a free change.[button link=”https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/breaking/20124502″ icon=”fa-external-link” side=”left” target=”blank” color=”285b5e” textcolor=”ffffff”]Source: Blizzard[/button]
