Change Account Name
« on: Tuesday, June 07, 2016, 10:08:31 AM »
I Just started playing again after around 5 years but I wanted to change the name on my account. Used to be able to go to America's Army website to do it but I only see and AA3 option. I have two accounts that I use, and I'll leave my [RG].H3ll-Await$. account as it is so I can rep when I'm not rusty.

I would like to change my secondary account .ModernLifeIsWar. to something else but I'm not sure how to do it. Is there a new procedure for name changes using Assist?

Login on Battletracker.com with your secondary account, BT username is different from your AAO Player Name, unless you used it as your login username as well.
Go to: http://battletracker.com/index.php?form=TrackerSettings
Change your "AAO - PlayerName" and click in Submit in the end of the page, Max of 20 characters, no space allowed.

Right I know how to change it in Battletracker, but that doesn't change my actual in game user. For instance I have a battletracker account for .ModernLifeIsWar. and the AAO Username is .ModernLifeIsWar.

If I just change my AAO Username to something else, let's pretend I change it to ModernWar, when I then go into assist and try to login as ModernWar will it allow me to? Or will I still need to change it some other way in assist?

Yes. Since the US Army dropped official support for the game as well as all the accounts in late 2011, there is nowhere to log in and change your "actual in game name".
Like Possessed said, nowadays only the battletracker information is used.

Yeah I stopped in 2011 so I guess I just missed that change. Does honor still work, aka gaining honor? Sorry if that's documented somewhere else I haven't explored the whole forum yet

Yes you still gain/loose honor, max of 110 :) if you have 100 of honor you get a veteran icon in-game.
We do Honor claims as well.

Also keep noticing people saying that having 2 accounts isn't allowed. Didn't realize that at first and used both, hopefully that's ok. I just use one at this point.

You can't create New BT accounts to use, but if you have 2 or 2000 BT Accounts before Assist, you can play with them.
