Until this weekend, Blizzard’s online community network Battle.Net would only permit changes to your unique identifying handle once, and if you weren’t quite out of the dark woods of puberty when you took that decision there’s a good chance you were, to put it mildly, quite screwed.

Now the one-time name change is just the one-timefree name change and even if you’re still happy to be known as KewlKelly or SnipeViper or ChaosSmurf now, you are only a few years and $10 away from redemption.
