I have recently wanted to change my Warlight name, but the 10-level name policy is a bit annoying.


Please tell me your views on this situation, whether you agree or not (this is not an angry letter Fizzer)

I think it's fine makes you more attached to your name.

It would kinda be chaotic if you could change your username at will

I find personal name changes being tied to how often you play and win to be a bit ridiculous as well. You should be able to change your name whenever you want as long as it isn't being changed to something that WL would deem offensive.

I also don't understand why WL prioritizes making prior name changes public but not game history. I personally would much rather have access to information about how often a player has played with their partner. Is this their first game as partners, or are they "regulars"? I would like to see game history/partner history made available on each player's profile in the future.

You used to be able to change your name every 20 days. Such a system should be brought back, instead you can change every 2 months or so and earning points could speed up the process. It'd be more sensible and hybridize what we like about both systems.

@Genghis I agree, I am usually for making everything into a good formula. Here is a suggestion for how often you can name change:

120 days - (points earned in the last 120 days/500,000)

To advocate for a waiting period doesn't make any sense. I'm fairly new to WL, but from the forum posts that I have read one thing is clear... Many users on this site have "alts". Why restrict name changes in any way when there is nothing stopping anyone of us from just going and creating a new account if we want a new name badly enough? Allowing easy name changes may even decrease the number of alts being created.

Oh yes, I would love the old 20-days system to be back. Not gonna happen now, when they earn money from allowing buying namechanges for points

Looking back, 20 days system sucked.

Took me years to find out x-apex, x, GUI, Chameleon, Ozymandias and Aranka's Boobs were all the same person.

20 day system was without doubt a 1000 times better than this one, it meant if you decided to change your name then you knew exactly how long you would have to wait before you could change back again.
Nowadays if I tried to change my name now I would have to wait years (at the rate I've been playing) to change it back. Whereas when the points system first came out I could change my name every couple of days (I had 3 names in the space of 9 days) and I wasn't changing name every 5 levels either.

Looking back, 20 days system sucked.


Genghis could you please explain how so? Are you saying it allows people to change their names too often?

I think the negative about frequent name changes is that people can get confused as to who people are, especially on the forum.

Totally agree with Beren. I don't necessarily think that players should be able to change their usernames at will, with no restrictions at all, but it would be nice to come up with a process that is more equitable. Keying to levels is fairly arbitrary, and obviously not uniform, since the amount of points one needs to level up is not uniform throughout all the levels. It would seem that a time based threshold would be more reasonable, though perhaps longer than 20 days (90 days maybe?). It would be interesting to see how much revenue is generated by name changes. I'm sure that would be a significant factor in getting Fizzer to change it.

If it means Fizzer will earn money, he will suddenly take interest.

I feel like on the forums these days Fizzer is being depicted as solely money-driven, and that if there isn't money in it then he isn't interested. Can I ask why? He's spent years trying to improve this game which is completely free to play and always has been and you can pay for a couple extra things - hardly anything now because of the points system which gives you everything as long as you are active. So why this common view?

You know ya could move warlight to steam and connect your account to warlight that way you can change it as much as you want.

I'm not faulting Fizzer for trying to make WL financially viable. My point was that, if he is currently generating a fair amount of revenue from the name changes, it is likely that he would wish to continue doing so, and would be less inclined to make free name changes more frequently. If very little income is derived from it (what is it, like $3-$4) - then he may be more inclined to make free name changes more available.
At the end of the day, if WL does not generate enough revenue, eventually it will go away, and that would be a shame for all of us (most of all Fizzer).

Fizzed said in an interview with Lolowut in an old stream I watched that when he quit his job to focus on warlight, he was initially losing money, but would eventually start making money. According to a link TBest gave at some point, warlight is worth ~180K.

Fizzer was losing money the whole time warlight has been playable since it started (2011 maybe?) to when the adverts first came onto the website - because he had to pay for the servers for everyone to play on, yet the money from memberships was not covering his costs.

if WL does not generate enough revenue, eventually it will go away


This is one of the reasons many people bought memberships before the large changes, to try and help Fizzer financially and keep the game online and here to play. However I see it as very unlikely that the site is losing money now (with ads) and he will have to bring it down, so that wouldn't really be a reason to change the name changing rules (imo).
