Blizzard’s Battle.net gaming service is a popular platform for purchasing and playing Blizzard’s extensive library of games. Because it includes multiplayer gaming and social features like chats, you can choose a gamer tag – which Blizzard calls a BattleTag – so you can be found and identified online.
Your BattleTag is unique, so you don’t have to worry about other gamers having the same name. Blizzard allows you to change this tag once for free. After that, you’re charged a change fee, which is currently $10 per BattleTag change.
Blizzard’s BattleTag naming rules
Blizzard gives you a lot of freedom when creating your name, but you’ll need to follow these conventions when changing your BattleTag:
It must be between 3-12 characters long.
It can’t start with a number, but numbers are allowed.
You can’t use any spaces or special symbols.
It also needs to follow Blizzard’s online code of conduct, which prohibits rude or offensive language.
Here’s how to change your BattleTag for free or at cost.
