Changing your in-game ID

It is possible to change the in-game ID you're using. You may wish to change it for many reasons, some honest and legitimate, some to enhance game play in some mysterious way, some not so honest, legitimate or fair or within the rules.

1) login in to origin @ http://www.origin.com
2) go through the security questions (if any)
3) change to the new name you wish to have
4) log out of origin
5) log into https://gamecdnorigin.alliances.commandandconquer.com/WebWorldBrowser/index.aspx
immediately before logging into any TA:CnC world
6) you're done!

This method has been known to work (I've used it in the past), but it has also been known to fail. It should change all of your ID's on all worlds, but sometimes it does not!

    Click on the base you wish to rename (it must be yours).
    Go to the button with 'Base info' on it, click on it
    This will bring up a screen with info and at the bottom a button 'Rename base' - use this and enter a new new after deleting the old name. If it corresponds to the allowed naming system (no special characters etc) then press OK - and it's done!

    Yes, the method isn't foolproof, it doesn't always work and in chat it can take longer to change. Cache and cookie clearing can help with this.

  • Works every time but when changing name you log in then log in for a second time and all sorted. I can however give false numbers in pvp and pve totals but use cncstats and you will see proper number there no hassels ;-)

    Okay so I migrated to Firefox Quantum: Developer Edition [from Firefox Quantum]—s'posed to be twice as fast. Anyway, I couldn't load the game —I would get redirect to the main site. Has happened to me before —what's your experience ? Good to know Wrath 8; Forgotten don't attack. Can spend on economy... Whenever I use that "webbrowser" URL it works, thanks ! It doesnt work even with Firefox Safe Mode (all add-ons disabled) yet it works with Private Window ! I'm guessing it's a Local Storage problem.

    Please indicate which world or worlds you are experiencing the problem of being unable to rename bases.

    Indique en qué mundo o mundos está experimentando el problema de no poder cambiar el nombre de las bases.

    Try clearing your caches and browser history. Even changing which browser you use may help with the problem of being able to change base names.

    Also, try using only the regular characters a-z and the numbers 0-9 without any accents or special indicators.

  • Anybody know how to change account name since log in has changed? the previous method no longer works.
  • I may be remembering incorrectly, but I think you can change your nick somewhere in the Origin account page.

    The previous method relied on changing the data in Origin and then not logging in via the normal route but using the webworldbrowser route.

    The worldbrowser route has now been changed. I know of no new route to change ID.

    It has been suggested to me that Customer Services may be able to assist with changing your in-game persona (name) for this game.

    Try to do this via the chat facility. Before you do, set up and check security questions as they may use them to verify it is you trying to get them to change your ID.

    Let us know if you are succcessful so that others may try (or not) that route.

    Not sure, I'm assuming it is possible as people posted transcripts. I'm on vacation so can't access everything. Try contacting via ea.com/help
