  • Anyone know if I can change my soldier name?

    My current Origin account is using my Origin login ID as my soldier name - is there any way to change that?

    It doesn't reflect my name here, and that (for me) just makes things complicated.

    Any help appreciated.

    I think if you change the soldier name you change your Origin ID as well but try http://www.origin.com/us/change-id

      FWIW, we can also change your forum name. Just post in Contact Tactical Gamer Administration with the new Forum name you'd like.

        Thanks both.

        I tried the change name page at Origin, but it seems that for some reason, it doesn't like the name T1GERT1GER - too many characters/numbers? I guess I'll wait until I change the name here as I'm speaking to Apophis about reverting to the account I used to use here (7ShadesOSin) since I've been a member since 2007 but lost that account when I lost the email address...

          I recently changed my origin name. Log into the client and in the top left there is an account option. Dig in there and it exists. It is different to the link posted above. Sorry I can't help more I'm on a phone.

            Cheers Jeepo, but same deal. Still tells me it's invalid. Looks like the Origin ID T1GERT1GER may be in use... However in past games you could name your soldier something different than your Origin ID - I can't seem to do that in BF4?

                "Invalid Origin ID" can mean it's in use or it has bad characters. For anyone who's interested (in case they get the same thing), my issue was that I'd linked my BF3 accounts which use that name. They are able to unlink these for me so I can change it, I'm waiting to hear back from a "specialist". FWIW, EA's chat support was first class.
