Really fed up of my legacy name and the inability to change it. Such a simple feature with no excuse not to implement since they're now non-unique.
Won't be resubbing til it's in the game, no regrets after seeing you guys actually lied about it in your advertisement too.

I desperately want to change my name and I really don't understand why this isn't an item in the game store like every other MMO I've played. I take great pride in my original names yet I screwed up with this one and didn't realize the name I made up was very similar to a popular Dragon Age 2 character. I regularly run into about 3 different people with similar names and I HATE IT. So please, name change option.

This isn't like a promise from a Dev or the head of a department promising new warzones are coming soon, this is a stated part of a package you're selling that you now can't deliver upon request.
Yeah, it's sad, but I don't bother reading anything any BW dev has to say any more - and I certainly don't pay attention to the advertisements. There's like a 90% chance it's an outright lie, and the other 10% of that is misdirection. It's a sad time for gaming - remember when BioWare made not just good, but great games? It's to the point now where I'll never preorder another BioWare title - I probably won't even pay full price for one again, they go to bargain bin so quickly these days.

Hi, I would like a name change option as promised. I have happily subscribed and purchased cartel coins but I am seriously considering if this game is worth pursuing further, there seems to be too many broken promises and like a bad relationship it is only natural that when you hear " i can change" one more time you just meh forget it, its easier to start again with someone else.

As soon as we have an ETA for them to share we will let you know.

You can expect to wait over a year for this service like others promised.

It has already taken over a year. Do not hold your breath.
You came in that thing? You're braver then I thought.
