    I'm like 90% sure that Trusty said it will be a feature eventually.
    But until then, +1.

    If they do do this the names should be from a preset list and randomly assigned to Players when they join, Part of the reason Valve stopped letting people have names independent of their Steam name was to counter hacking and griefing.

    The use I see this being intended for is to let people sport their clan tags without needing to change their profile name every time they hop on WoR.

    I do see how it can be abused, though. The devs would have to work out a way to solve the abuse potential.

    God no, a preset list why.... surely the best option is to have your Company Tool name linked to the game server.

    That would be the best thing. Having your company tool accounted linked to the game would be a good idea I think.

    Company tool linked to your name would be the best, and maybe some function where you won't be able to change it constantly would help prevent some abuse, like maybe only once a day/week or something

    Yes, there will be an option to change the ingame name!
    It will be added soon or later, we know that this is an important requested feature
