Tired of your nickname? Well, change it! World of Tanks is now offering you the option to change your nickname. At just the cost of 2,500 gold, you can now change your moniker to suit your mood or something more befitting your latest collection of tanks or achievements in World of Tanks.

For guidelines on names, please refer to point number 3 of the World of Tanks Game Rules here.
