Recently it was announced that Minecraft will allow users to change their name in an upcoming update. The question that everyone is asking, however, is how will it work? Mojang has levied a few rules regarding changing your Minecraft name. First, your account must be a “Mojang Account” this is something I never did adapt to or move my account over to but for those who did you’ll have this feature. Second, you can only change your name once every 30 days. Third, your name will become available after 37 days. And it has also been confirmed that name changes will still keep users banned on servers. So to any griefers out there you’re still out of luck if you want to circumvent bans.
I don’t see much use or need in this feature and believe that the game has many more problems and features that need to be focused on. But hey, you’ll be able to change your name starting February 4th. Have fun.
