Because my account was actually made by my cousin for a one-off post, then I started using it after he abandoned it, and things snowballed from there.

Long story short, my username is dumb as hell and I don't want to have it anymore.

But my Uplay account is different, it's my PSN name. Or did I unwittingly make a second Uplay account when I made a Ubiforums account?

I'm the same with my actual Uplay Username which is why I use my 360 Gamertag username it's so much better than my Uplay one. :eek:

It's a better user name than mine - which derives from an old show on Nickelodeon starring Britney Spears younger sister, as well as the Turkmen renegade, Shahkulu from ACR.

That sucks! :-\

There is an option to link your PSN or Gamertag to your Uplay account to change your username on the forums, if that's a option for you?

But yours is proof of your psychic powers. Anyone who looks at your reg date can see you predicted AC4's theme.

User names are linked to your Uplay or PSN or XBL account names (assuming you have linked them)

if you want to use the XBL / PSN name - you need to have linked them to the same Uplay account, via a game.

And as such, user names are locked.


which from my point of view, is a good thing.. So we know who's who..

According to tweets I've seen form Ubisoft, the feature to change your username on Uplay is coming in the future.

It has been a feature requested for some time, however no date has been set for it..

And even then, you still can't change the forum name, you have to the Uplay name - I didn't mention it, since as soon as you do, people start complaint and demanding ;)

Currently we we suggest you speak to a FM, who will ban your current account, so you can make a new one and you start over with the new name ;)

When I want to link my account it only gives me the option to link my PSN and not my XBL?

You need to have used Uplay on the Xbox and linked with a game it should then appear as an option on the forums,

You can only use one PSN account with Uplay?

if you already have one registered, and want it unlinked, you have to contact support - it's down to Uplay to link, and that only allows one PSN account, since they expect you to only use one..

That will stop your old PSN account working for UPlay - so you should consider that.


if you have never linked a PSN or XBL account to your Uplay, you need to do so via a game in the console. :)

no names are better than mine.... ;D

Sexually transmitted disease?

Anyway, I'd be open to the option to change usernames since mine is so incredibly generic and uninspired. But only if there'd be a limit to the number of times you're allowed to change it.
