Can someone on here direct me on a way to change my characters name? I would hate to lose my progress, but I am not going to get banned again for logging in.

Also, is there a way to change your display name on these forums?

Greetings angryfatjew,

Unfortunately, we do not offer the facility to change your forum name after account creation. It is the same for character names once the character is created.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Greetings!

I apologize for the confusion. So in relation to your question who do you contact to rename your character, as mentioned in the e-mail you recieved:

Quote:
The next time you log into Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ you will be prompted to change your Character Names.
Once you log into your character again, you will have to change the name in a special window.

Thank you!

Thank you very much, I was afraid to try and actually go past the character selection screen because i didn't want to get banned again, but once I selected the character and tried to enter the game the prompt appeared... Once again thank you

You can allow us to change our name if we get banned but not by choice? ....Come on.
There is no Light or Dark side of the Force. The Force simply "Is" the "Force"
