Is there a way to change your forum account name?

Like many others, I recently changed my PSN given it was the first opportunity to do it, and it would be good to have them aligned......no way of doing it without starting another account?

    For PC it's via Origin, word of caution though, since the recent maintenance certain things in the stats do not update and username is one of them. My stats are locked to a previous username despite having playing since using this name. Of course this may not be a factor given the procedure probably is very different for consoles.

    Yes - I have the same issue. BF1 Tracker is broken since the last DICE server maintenance: Weapon kills not updating, MVP's not updating, user name changes not updating. GG DICE.

    oh so all the stat trackers are dead

    I was wondering why I’ve only been using guns I have like 0 service stars with lately and not caring. At least the in game still updates, that’s all I care for since Peacekeeper kills aren’t viewable elsewhere.

    TBH I loved getting 100 service stars on guns and them appearing on my stats as such, even if a gun itself wasn't as enjoyable to play with... but part of that was that the stats were public for, bragging rights in a way.  Now they aren't counting any more, it kinda feels pointless - might as well just play with whatever gun I enjoy instead.  Bring on the Fedorov :)

    BattlefieldTracker is not tracking kills properly, but it does synchronize service stars.

    I've changed my ID there, but it still doesn't show here.  Is there anything else I should be doing?

    In that case you will need to contact EA Moderator as they are able to change your forum name.
