Submit a ticket as an irate customer. You have to change it with gold.

There is a way to change your name but it costs real money/gold. If you're just playing for this game and you don't have another you can just make a new account and not log into this one again.

The cost is right now, 2,500 gold, a decent amount, but possible if you can gather up the money needed to get the gold for it.

Indeed, that is a better way if you can do it.

I hope you are able to find a good solution that doesn't require gold, as it can be costly to some.

Actually, I believe that if your real life name is in your handle, they'll provide a courtesy name change. Pretty certain I read that somewhere in the terms of service when I name-changed.

I think its best you actually create another account, and remove your old one to avoid any further troubles.

Another option, in the event you don't want to buy gold, is to hire a lawyer and change you real name.  I'd recommend something with a lot of X's because we all know that players with a lot of X's in their names are the coolest.  And just imagine the pride you'll feel when you hear, "And this is my fiance, Jared XxSuperSailorxX."  :P

Use support and explain that you are stuck with that username cause of facebook. I'm sure they can be understanding and let you change your username for free. Won't hurt to try

I wouldn't recommend creating another account right off the bat.

 

Send in a ticket to support https://na.wargaming.net/support/Tickets/ViewList detailing the error and your concern about having your real name as your handle.

 

Something like this:

 

Hey, I signed up for World of Warships through Facebook and when I did, there wasn't an option for me to choose the name I wanted. Instead, it defaulted to using my real name and I'm not comfortable with having my personal information being publicly displayed. I understand there's a way to change my name with money, but being that I had just signed up recently and this wasn't something I was able to change initially, I'd like to know if you can change my name on your side, or if I'd have to sign up again with a new account.

 

Hopefully they'll understand and accommodate you.

 

Good luck! :great:
