    name flagged for changing

    Hey guys
    Has this happened to anyone else?
    I moved a character from another realm and faction and got the name I wanted. Logged in and played a bit and all is well.
    On next log in the character is flagged for a name change and I cant just put the name back in as it says it is unavailable so had to change name to something else
    I then created a lv1 with the name I chose just to save it so I wouldn't lose it.
    Would blizz restore it or do I have to pay for a name change?

    They should be able to restore it. My guild just recently did a server and faction transfer. more then 50% of our raid team got that exact flag. Anyone that opened a ticket got their name back. That is assuming the name isnt legitimately against the rules.

    Yeah, I had the same issue when I changed realm.

    Just open a ticket in-game asking for your old name back and they'll fix it for you.

    Its a known bug that happens when you transfer sometimes, I recently moved quite a few characters and it happened to half of them. Just open a ticket and they will unblock the characters name.
