The default my id is ZR1GT_Titan but this looks like so bad for me beacause all my account game is TitanZR1GT. please can you change my id to "TitanZR1GT"? I want my id to be "TitanZR1GT"

The combination of letters "qwe" gets flagged as inappropriate for some reason. I wanted to change my name to "qwerqwer" since I've started using that on other platforms but it would not let me.

 

The only remotely "offensive" thing I can find about this combination is that urban dictionary list it as "quickest * ever" which I've literally never seen anyone use like that. If the automated system is blocking abbreviations from urban dictionary... that's not a great system.

I think this thread is the best example for why EA is a complete j o k e !
The first user (almost 4 years ago) went through a weeks worth of Customer Support, and didn't get their answer solved! Years later and 20 pages of comments worth of complaints, and there is literally no answer from Support or any user solutions.

My name currently is liiQwiiDGolD after dozens of attempts at my preferred name, liiKwiiDGolD. As you can see, the only issue is the arrangement of letters, and there should be no reason for this issue. PLEASE contact me with an answer to allow username additions. There MUST be a way to create a logging database that works.
