Only if it breakes the rules.

Mods will not allow you to chance it "just because you dont like it anymore".

Sorry:)

Unless it contains a Clantag or teamtag, which you are no longer a part of. Then they make an exception, as far as I know.

I wish 2 people would change theirs, ..named after an 'infamous' gas used in WWII.
How they got away with it, I do not know.

Report their names. If WG is aware of them they can react. They can't check every single username.

Yup, report them. I reported a guy who had 40 battles in a lol traktor with a VERY offensive name directed at jews. Couldn't believe he was allowed to set it up.

Just raise a ticket through the support centre and they will take action, they can't afford to ignore that kind of thing as one whiff of racism in the game and bang goes their business.

Just checked, there are actually 10 player names which feature the gas you mention, quite incredible.

Ticket raised.
Ta.

I'm amazed that some think it an appropriate name to use.

Perhaps you do not know how to search players names, perhaps you're a troll, I care neither way, but there has already been someone else in this thread saying what I have been saying. They exist.
Go troll elsewhere.

is anyone getting ofended by the name of a gas? i could understand if it was a religious related name or even nazi name, but a gas really just because it kills and killed people? CO2 kills too, also just censure hydrogen too, its very offensive for me, really im not trolling :Smile_trollface-3:
now it is just a gas get over it, or we will have to censor the guys called mustard because there is mustard gas, i mean the gases dont have fault if they were used for wrong reason, and steel killed more during ages then any gas

Its the same techique as a dyson. is uses a cyclone to get the dust out. works mostly also with water.  so i gues zyclon is just the same as cyclone in a strange language.

It was, specifically, Zyklon B.

Are there really people on this planet that are so dense they can't see that a users name, named after the gas used exclusively, by the Nazis, to murder people in the concentration camps, as not being offensive ?

I truly despair of some folk.

I think you should call yourself what you want. Too many people trying to stop nazi's by becoming nazi's. I believe in free speech no matter how much i dont like it some times.

You'd have no trouble with 'World_Trade_Center_Bomber' then ?
