If your like all the other minecraft players then at some point during playing you game you have probably thought to yourself “Gee I wish I could change my name”. Well I’m sorry to be the person to inform you, but it’s not possible. At least not at this point in time, Jeb has taken the time to hint that such a feature might be upcoming in the near future! For some reason I never have understood why game makers want to keep this feature off in the corner gathering dust. We all know that it’s possible, and that most game makers already have it built in somewhere in the very back. Anyways, until Jeb takes the time to launch this the only way to change your name is to buy another account or go cry about it. I should also mention that there is no set date for this change, don’t get your hopes up yet guys!
In another less notable update, the developers over at minecraft have finally decided that account security is a good thing. Chances are that if you play on a multiplayer server you’ve had a run in with one of “those” guys. The guys that do really nasty things, get banned and then instantly join with another account. Well this new security update hopes to cut down on the number of hacked accounts that seem to floating around. I don’t know all the details but it has something to do with making your minecraft account and your mojang account the same account, This forces you to login using your email address instead of the normal minecraft username, cool eh?
