Every complaint about battletag instead of character name on page 168

Well guess what guys, just when you though you had something more to complain about in D3 I come to provide the answer redface.gif

Initial complaint on the official forums:
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4175360512 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just to fill people in that are unaware of a blaring issue in the beta that could very well be the biggest oversight by Blizzard.

When you create a character, you get to decide a hero name right? It is an Action "RPG" after all...

However, upon joining a game with other players, both your name on your profile to the left and the name that pops up on the chat window are your Battletag names.

ANY interaction in-game is done with your battletag....Imagine if a game like WoW did this.

Your hero name only appears during dialogs with npcs and emotes.




After each and every beta patch that comes, I see no indication that they plan to bring back our character names....

What is the point of making an awesome name for an awesome hero if no one can see it, not even yourself?!

Here is the thread in the Beta Feedback unanimously stating how IMPORTANT hero names are to the game.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4175547887?page=1

Let's make sure Blizzard understands this.

In the meantime, why not post your hero names below, because if the way things continue like they are, it'll be the only time we can share them with each other.

You've been heard! There's a clean up pass coming for BattleTag in the near-ish future that should resolve most of the issues with a BattleTag being displayed instead of a character name, or a character name not being displayed at all. I think it may also line up with some fixes for BattleTags here on the forums. Although I'll still think of you all as my little D3BETA's... *sniff*

BattleTag is still intended to be your big overarching account-wide identifier that will follow you from Blizzard game to Blizzard game, but individual character identity is still obviously very important.

You're welcome. tongue.gif

Well that's good. I knew they couldn't let it stand, it's just poor design.

I keep a notepad in my documents with all the character names I can think of that I would like to use at some point. It really helps to just pull that up instead of staring at the text box thinking... wth am I supposed to name this dude? smile.gif

No, i've been playing the beta for a few months now, and honestly it feels like polished d2 with a few new features, I couldn't be happier with how the game itself is. I wish it would be released already biggrin.gif
