[this question is address to all the staff of eve online who manage the game data base regarding the clients user names],
just want to ask if its still impossible to change our account name in eve? since there is a lot of changes made to the game lately, so might ask if they also try to find ways for players to change their USER NAMES, since lately i was alerted when my account was used by unknown user, it seems someone knows my user name and password already, and i really want to change not only my password but also my user name. one thing also, i really don't want the idea of some people calling me names whom i don't know, because they say we have similar user names,Shocked and it seems this people was monitoring the other user who also has similarity to my log in user name, to cut it short, i found my self with similar user name with other players (but not exactly the same, as for the word similar) for log in purposes, and it seems this guy are acting bad and i was interrogated coz we have the similar User name. Shocked and thats really bad for my sideSad
this is freaking me out so please if theres any way to change my user name let me know, and one thing, if not i guess this game will be a better one if they can make some modifications to allow players to change their user names, honestly all the games online, this game is awesome but it sucks when it comes to changing the user name thing... other game which is more simple less high tech and FREE, can do it without any problem! so i think there is no deep reason why this game cant make a simple change to give way to this issue...

["just remember the saying, if your interested theres a lot of way to do it, if your not interested theres a lot of reason not to do it".] just simple as that.

thanks for the replies, but i already did post it on petitions, sorry but i'm not so old in this game and don't know much about the mechanics in doing so, and don't have much time to scan tons of files posted in this site, (real life stuff wont allow me) so i just want a direct answer which are achieved mostly at game forums. petitions seems take time to gain replies. just want to have an idea if this matter is possible atm.

I have to say I find this confusing 'clients user names', are you talking about a new account name or a new character name?

I question how players online would associate someone ingame by their account name?

You can change your account name for $20. Just sign up a new account with the name you want and pay for a character transfer.

There is no way to change your character name.

Hope this answers your question.

Petition it.

If you have a valid petition about someone else usnig your account against your wishes then they might allow you to create a new account and get a character transferred for no fee (ie they do it instead of you doing it via the website).

They can only say no...

*USER NAME - refers to your account name, the one you use to log in to the eve game. the main name OR user ID etc. you use to access to your 3 characters (if present) at a single account.Very Happy

Short version? no

And how exactly do you know other players have a simular user name; It's not public knowledge?

Currently it is not possible and would take some changes to our basic systems. Your best measure against unauthorized account hacking is to make sure your password is not too simple or obvious, that it's only used for EVE, and that you change it once in a while.


Link to the post.

Just thought, if you really wanted to change it, you could always create a new account and transfer your character there.

this guys are telling me that my user name is similar to the guy they are hunting, so on so forth, and that sucks at my part, since got no idea on how they know it!
i mean, they even tell me my user name and the user name of that unknown guy and i have to admit its true that its really similar. ( but of course your not expecting me to post my user name here are you? ) coz that will be an additional risk for me if i do...
i already report this via petition but got no response atm.

that i don't really know, all i know is that they know my user name and they present a user name similar to mine, i dont think i know this guys or they are just ussing a paying or trial account, but i dont worry much since i already report this, just waiting for the reply of my petitions... one thing bother me, i like to change it so they cant bother me no more... but as to how they do that, i dont really know, and i dont think its only coincidence,maybe hackers can do it? in that case, it makes me wonder how far eve can protect there clients to hackers. just trowing a common costumer question...

It seems this is a case of harassment, and not necessarily "account/billing" - petition under harassment with the full details, those generally get higher priority anyway.
