Hi all, my user name has become RenamedUser_ with a lot of numbers, my name for 18 months was Hillary_Clinton, can someone please tell me why this name over night has become against the rules?

 

Thank you.

I'd contact customer services as I don't see anything in the rules, well besides the one that says we can do what we want, that means you can't have that as a name.

I had the same problem with my recruit account.

Support ticket = free rename to nickname of choice

 

Like you, someone submitted a petty report and some button pusher upheld it.

 

Shouldn't happen, but they do fix it.

You can't use the names of historical persons as game handles, if we could Adolf_Hitler1488, Heydrich1941, Himmler1945, Mussolini1936, Stalin1956, Che_Guevara, Fidel_Castro1961 and Pol_Pots would be all over the game..oh wait, except for Hitler as that name is hard coded not to be possible to use, they are... I'd advice you to pick one of those now that Wargaming is only selectively enforcing their own rules.

I'd pick Arthur_Bomber_Harris or Curtis_Nukem_Lemay if i was you. TYVM in advance for my free advice:B

I presume it's because she wanted to use her own name in the game, which seems fair.

Having had it changed twice suggests the problem is actually you choosing idiotic names

Mstakes do happen but most of the name changes I've seen are well justified. The funniest ones are those that think they're being clever by using 'naughty' words with dual meanings. I still remember the player claiming that they were innocent as the shag in their name referred to the bird.

In my case, I had a word, that, way down in the list of possible meanings:

Block Quote

 

an insignificant or contemptible person.
  • NORTH AMERICAN
    a sports team or player not among the best or most skilled.

 Of course, that comes after other usages of the same word, ranging from foliage, cleaning, a type of clothing, cancelling / abandoning something, a couple of uses in motorsports and horse riding, a children's game and:

Block Quote

 

BRITISHinformal
(of a person) have a smart and well-groomed appearance after making a deliberate effort.

 

With the exception of the game, and the one very slightly questionable use of the word, which are only defined as US uses of the word; all the other definitions are defined as British uses of the word. 

 

Off course there is a fair amount of migration when it comes to vocabulary, but still...

In the context of the game I would take it to mean not a very good player but I still don't see why that would be against the rules. Then again a player had their name changed from Arnold Judas Rimmer on the grounds it was a controversial religious figure which I then think was changed to it implies a sexual act. Go figure.
