Thread: About real name for a future SC2 account

  1. #1

    Default About real name for a future SC2 account

    Just in case someone has an ass less lazy than mine and took time to clarify.

    I'm planning on buying euro-version of SC2 and creating a new account, other than which I use for Beta, for it. Must I put my real name on it or I can put "Kknewkles Wildwision" as a name and surname without fearing of getting my account blasted for infringement of some rules?

    You wouldn't get in trouble, but if someone manages to steal your account, you won't be able to prove it's yours.

    Just curious, why do you not want to use your real name? It seems a lot of people are still under the assumption that in-game Bnet2.0 will use real names for Friends list, which is simply not true.

    You can have multiple b.net accounts under the same name, just need a different email.

    I don't think your real name is displayed in Bnet is it? I know it's displayed when you click your profile but I think other people can't see that.

    No one can see it except for RealID friends. RealID friends are people that you should know in real life.

    You cannot see someone's real name unless you're Real ID friends, usually those you know in real life or i guess you trust. Like i have some WoW friends ive known for a long time and wouldnt mind being able to chat with while playing SC2.

    Real ID only displays real name and lets you cross-game chat, they cant get your personal info.

    Talking about battle.net 2.0? You can only have multiple accounts if you bought the game multiple times.

    I don't want to expose my name in case I make streams
    But I guess I just have to not press "My profile" button. Silly me

    Meh. No offense to you but I've seen some prominent people Stream SC2 without fear of showing their profile. I think people are taking this name thing way to serious. If your not doing anything out of the ordinary , theres really no reason to target you. Like they say;
