I'm honestly more excited about the name change service they mentioned. Recently I inherited a guild from a good friend who moved to a different server. However, for some reason he named it something very silly and childish. I think our name is holding back our recruitment quite a bit. Understandably, no one wants to re-level a new guild from scratch just to change the name so this will be nice.

Just make a GM ticket to get it changed. I've changed many bank guilds' names before.

Thats actually pretty BS, I'm sorry.GM's have allowed us to change guild names for years now. And now they are making, possibly, paid service to change the name? Are they aware that GM's have been doing these things at all or is this just blatantly paying for air? I mean yeah, its pixels and fonts but what I mean by air is that It's been free for years with very little effort attached to it from players who wished that (make ticket, wait, talk to GM and explain, he might allow to change it. Done).Someone really has to explain about this to me, how does this differ and why should be suddenly pay for this? And NO, I will NOT take "less time GMs to get bothered" as answer to play something like 10-20$ from something we've been doing for years free and thought it was no brainer.

Look at it this way, the time the GM spends changing your name is a wage that Blizzard has to pay. Obviously, they are not a charity case, so if they can simultaneously lower costs for them AND get some money, they are going to take that road.

@SunaseniI doubt blizzard is paying GM's salary based on how much buttons they press while at their work nor they have to hire new GM's to "meet growing demand of people who want to change guild names" so thats not really the argument for it. Its hardly service that they must make as payment to ease GM's work, now is it. Theres so many other things to make easier time for GM's by mile other than making 0.1% cases possible as payment. Like the time they made report spam button or page for people who got their account hacked.Changing guild name wont cost them anything already. There is NO "everytime you press this button it will cost us 5$", I mean come on now they are changing letters here. They have coded system like that in the past that allows it, they have tested the system internally, they have given GM's to press this button.That might've costed them something in the past but that was their choice to spend time on to serve players/fans to make better product and customer service. And it was what, 4 years ago anyway so its pretty late to "ask that money back".I mean sure, they are not doing charity etc etc business company, but thats already part of the game! Its been free for years! Its ridiculous and I don't understand it.
