[Windows PC] How to change username?

Sun Jun 16, 2019 7:13 pm
Hello. I am WIndows PC user right now (came from Android) and I have a question: how to change gamer username. I am "Taki T." right now, and is it possible to be only "taki"? Thank you any reply!

Have you linked your "new" Windows account to XBOX or Facebook?

If you link it to XBOX, the game will automatically start using your XBOX nickname, which you can change (after the first change) by paying a fee to Microsoft (10 dollars here in the US).

If you link it to Facebook, the game will disregard XBOX nickname (if you have linked it too) and it will start using your Facebook name. Then, to change your name in A8 to whatever you want, you just change your Facebook name.

BUT, if you change your Facebook name, FB will get suspicious and will most certainly block your FB account and demand that you prove who you are. And if you are unable to provide FB with a copy of your real documents, having your FB account locked may soon lead to a permanent ban in the A8 account linked to it.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

GameLoft support moved all my progress to Windows PC Xbox and I had to login with Facebook. With google play gamer ID was very easy to change any nickname/username, but with windows.. seems only facebook is the only option
well thank you!

Well, there is another option, but it is "TOS-non-compliant".

Changing FB name does not change the IGN in A8 at all
IGN: Lolonoa Lolo (A8)
         Pink Caped Baldy (A9)
YouTube(it just exists): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEq03aSMx4XWciF9zbs5YIQ

Paying real money for A8 and/or A9 is just the same as a trypophobic person buying iPhone 11.

You have to log in to FB from within the game for the change in FB name to take effect in A8. It has to be done once, for every change in FB name.
