Nice! Not sure about the cost (especially since I'm a free player), but I bet it's going to be discounted at some specials...

"but you will need to wait several days (up to two weeks) to see the change in the game" So why will it not be instant like if I change my name on steam?

Probably so they can authorise it to make sure its not offensive

Wargaming is proud to present a new feature for players of World of Tanks. From tomorrow, October 11th , you will be able to change your nickname!

Did you choose your nickname after just 5 seconds thought just so that you could get to playing as soon as possible? Did you realise too late that you won’t only play SPGs and that being ‘ArtyMcFly’ is not as funny with a heavy tank? Perhaps you are named after an ex-girlfriend, or is it simply the case that after thousands of battles, you have tired of seeing the same name?

There are hundreds of reasons why you might want to change your nickname, and now you finally have the option to do so, and you don’t even need to give any reasons for the change. For a fee of 2500 gold you will be able to rename your World of Tanks account with an awesome and well thought-out new nickname.

The option will be available in the Account Management page after you have logged in. To perform the operation you will have to have sufficient gold funds available on your account and you will need to remember your password. It couldn’t have been simpler! The change will take immediate effect on the Wargaming.net websites, but you will need to wait several days (up to two weeks) to see the change in the game.
We hope that you will enjoy this new feature and wish you luck on the World of Tanks battlefields!

You have to give them 10/10 for nerve with this "awesome" new feature - I wouldn't dare show my face if I had the nerve to charge people that much for a name-change :D.  Yes - they're disgustingly avaricious - but at least their open with their contempt.

£8.45 to change my name? No thanks, a nice feature but one that took far too long and is way too greedy for me to be a part of.

All I'd really end up doing is changing the 's' in 'sam' to a capital S, and remove the 'L', Supposed to be my initial for my last name, instead I'm being called "sami".


It's also a real shame that other companies charge you £0.00 for a name change.

Thanks EU community for doing this, but ********************************** you WG for being so greedy. They are really lucky they're the only MMO Tank game.

I don't want to sound like a queer or nothing, but I think Arty McFly is a kickass name.

2.500 gold....that means 2-3 premium tanks, or a mount of premium.So i would chose the premium against the nickname.

2500 gold to change your name no F****** chance happy with mine any how the poor players who do want to are going to have to spend nearly 10 Quid to change their name ?

WG have you no conscience what so ever this is just Robbery ok charge a gold fee but 2500 gold is really taking the Piss as if you havent milked enough out of people with the new camo's ect
How meny ferrari's do you need out side the WG Office you buying them for extended family now too ?

Honestly i might be the only one thinking this but F**** it you guys should all be wearing a patch over one eye your all F****** pirates

way to expesive and unessasary, they should make it free because its just a few bytes in software and nobody would want to do this for that price and it doesnt cost so much CPU power for the server, the guy how makes the prices, i think there is somehting wrong with him


But somehow i am thinking of a certain story about a man and and four ghosts
