    So you want to change your name in Dawngate!? Info inside

    There have been a lot of people that have requested a name change within Dawngate. I'm sure their thought process is much akin to this: "I wonder if YOLODawngateSWAGBOT is taken?" Well, we understand your desire to jump on such a highly sought after name such as that, and we want to facilitate that. We do use the Origin ID Account System, however, so any changes you make to your Origin account is what is going to affect your Dawngate name. Below are instructions on changing your Origin ID.

    We heard you wanted to change your Origin ID, so we created a new tool for you to change it! Simply go to http://www.origin.com/us/change-id and login with your EA or Origin Account username and password. Now you are free to change your Origin ID to something new and exciting!

    1. Follow these steps to change your Origin ID within the client:
    2. Login to the Origin client (if not already).
    3. Click on your screenname.
    4. Click on Edit My Profile.
    5. Click on Change Origin ID.
    6. You should be redirected to http://www.origin.com/us/change-id.
    7. Choose your new Origin ID.

    Kind of bummed that my name was already taken, but have an x instead of a c at the end isn't the end of the world. Guess I should try changing it periodically to see if I can snatch it back up eventually.

    Pretty disappointing that the in-game screen-name is pulled directly from that system, since it seems to hog usernames for an indefinite amount of time, unlike other games, where unused accounts get wiped after a certain amount of time.
    I can understand why wiping accounts isn't an option with Origin, as games bought via that same system are linked to those accounts. But I don't understand why there's no option to pick a different in-game name which is then linked to your Origin account.

    Of course I'm personally not happy with not being able to use my preferred screen-name just because someone used it to buy a game and never logged in again, though I might be able to get over that eventually. ;.;

    But I fear it will also limit people's options greatly overall, since the Origin user database is already rather large, and a lot of in-game screen-names are now locked by people that don't even play the game.

    It does not work, because you have to login through here - https://www.origin.com/ie/login?retu...00/ccRef.en_US

    And then click on Edit Account and there you can change name, but be if you change the name you lose all victories
