This we noted back a few months ago, but we have yet to get it for us subscribers, what gives BW?

I had done a search for "free name change" in the forum search but every link that was in old post that showed them saying this have been replaced with new links. So, don't have a links for you but if you do the same search, i can assure you that they did post that subscribers were so post to get a free name change.

Here the best one i found, so from now on I'm just going to have to screen shot the information they post because they seem to go back on their word often.

Yeah i know right, I too just had one guy i wanted to change, but when it came out they said we would get our free one on a later date. My guess is that they wanted to get as much money as they can before giving out the well deserved free name change to their loyal subscribers that have been paying them. I would assume that it would just take a week after it went live, to get all of the people who just couldn't wait for the free one and just cave into spend their money, so, what give BW?

Well timed, I just got an update on this today and didn't want to have to necro a thread on the topic!

If you look at our landing page for Game Update 2.1 we mentioned that all subscribers will be getting their free name change in June. Around that same time I made a post on the forums that our target was to get that in for Game Update 2.2. Unfortunately it looks like that we are still working through some things to get that in place and it will not be coming with 2.2.

Our current plan is that this will still happen in June, just not with Game Update 2.2.

Thanks everyone.

Quick question, one free name change per account or per character?

And why don't you just grant the ammount of CC it costs to every subscriber? While i appreciate the reply, i do think it's pretty bad to actually promote being a subscriber with the sentiment of "Get a free name change, sign up today" when it's in fact not so.
