Styopa, and what happens when you just type the name?What you (everyone guessing on this) may not know is the Battle.net BattleTag currently in the Diablo 3 beta is being ported to all current Blizzard games eventually. It works similiar to that guess. You are Name#3456. So if your name is ThroggtheOrc, you would be ThroggtheOrc#3456, with a random number on the end. The numbers are not sequential to the name, so if you are BobthePaladin, and the 15th person to use that name, you won't be BobthePaladin15.This system will be used across all current Blizzard games. You can currently set up a BattleTag if you like, just login to Battle.net and go to your account settings. However, the name is currently PERMANENT, and the ability to change it has only been discussed as being possible after Diablo 3 ships. So if you make one now, choose carefully. There's already some dumb names on the Diablo 3 beta forums, and I don't think these people realize the names are permanent ("Rawbaconpinkfuzzysocks", as a made-up example.)
