We will be changing names on all our games.
On 3 February we will make changes to nicknames (player names) in order to unify them so that you have the same name on all Playspace games. In addition to being able to find your friends on all of our games, this will mark the start of upcoming changes for 2016 that you are definitely going to love.
How will the name change work?
When you enter a Playspace game on the 3rd or thereafter, you will be assigned that same name on all the other games. The name assigned will therefore be that of the first Playspace game that you access following the changes.
For those of you who have made a payment on Playspace, you will be assigned the name from the last game where you made the payment. You will also be given the chance to change this name for another in case it is not your preferred option.
What can I do if I do not like my assigned name?
We will soon be including an item in the shop that you can obtain with coins or credit in order to change your name. We will make the announcement through all of our channels. If you have made a payment on Playspace, you will have the chance to change name in the same message where we outline the name that we have assigned you, and you can change it there and then. Just remember! The name change will apply to all of the Playspace games.
How can I find my friends?
Remember that if you enter with Facebook connect from your computer, on the bottom bar of the game you will find a list of your friends that you can continue to challenge. From your mobile device or table, you can click on “Challenge” and continue to select the friends that you want to play against. If you do not have some of your friends added to your Facebook account, you will continue to have your record of private conversations with them with the new name, therefore you can contact them whenever you want. Lastly, if you want everyone to know who you are in the event that your nickname changes, present yourself again in the chat feature and let everyone know that you are back!
I have been assigned a new name in games. Why?
There are various reasons why your player name or nickname may have been changed to a new one:
– Your name contains special characters. These include any names not comprised of letters or numbers.
– Another player already has that name assigned. This will only happen to players that have a name identical to that of another player on the Playspace games.
