Blizzard introduced BattleTags to give you one name that you can use across Blizzard’s games, like Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, Diablo, and more. So if you add a person by their BattleTag, you’ll see them online and can chat with them regardless of the fact that you guys might be playing different games. It’s a great social feature.
The thing is, some of us probably regret choosing the nicknames that we did and may want to change them at some point. Good news. You can now change it, thanks to a recent announcement by Blizzard.
According to Blizzard, “As we prepare for the launch of Overwatch next week, we have refreshed the free BattleTag update for all Battle.net accounts! We often see feedback with requests to update your BattleTag, and as we move into a new universe filled with soldiers, scientists, adventurers and oddities it’s important that you have a nickname that represents you!”
Obviously fans will love this. To change your BattleTag, just head to your Account Management Dashboard and click “Change” next to your BattleTag. It looks like you can change it at any time and there does not appear to be a time limit to do so.
