What happens when I change my steam username?
« on: July 15, 2014, 08:04:03 PM »
I have already registered on CivPlayers and have recorded matches.  I would like to change my steam username, but am not sure how that effects my account here.  Will I need to create a new CivPlayers account?

No but you have to go into your account settings and change your league display name to match your new steam display name.  Not a big deal, it takes 2min.

To be honest I am not sure why some users are getting this problem, I use Fire Fox and have never had the problem.  I wish I could fault find the issue and raise a trouble ticket with our provider.

But in the mean time if you tell me what you want your display name to be, I will change it myself.

I am having the exact same issue.  Tried using both Chrome and Firefox. 

Can you change my username from 'teachingking' to 'brother'?

Thanks

So i tried to change my name, but nothing worked. I went back to switch my name back to arkengate, and Im on the blocked list? What for? Any idea?

I have only played 4 games. (5 technically, but had to leave one due to GF totalling her car in the middle of a match, and got a sub for that match...)

Why would my name be on the blocked list? Is it becuase i changed, and tried to change back 30 minutes later? (I couldnt find a name I liked on steam that had the available URL)

However, i want my usernae set back to Arkengate if possible.  ???

Your Civ5 profile name is Arkengate already, which all that really matters as it's your display name that has to match your steam display name.  Your master account name is just that, and doesn't relate to any specific game.

Like I said above, your display name is already Arkengate, so there is nothing to change.  What your master account or login name is doesn't matter when people look you up for a game report.
