Blizzard has announced that Overwatch players will be able to change their BattleTag for free until next Friday, November 5th.
BattleTag Is a player-selectable nickname that identifies your Battle.net account in our games, on the website, on the forums, etc. … Only one BattleTag can be assigned to a Battle.net account. The BattleTag doesn’t have to be unique.
This opportunity comes when original Overwatch character McCree becomes Cole Cassidy this week. Previously, changing your Overwatch username required a $ 10 fee.
When we enter a new name, you may be tempted to do the same.
Players can request a name change using this form. You will receive a notification when your request has been reviewed. Please be patient: it can take up to four weeks to process your request.
