Public names rather than alias / Arena user option
There should be an option to be listed by name on Wizards account OR alias on Arena. At the moment the only way to pseudonymise is to go to the host tab and change name in there. Which is unintuitive!
Besides store FNM and Grands Prix there is no reason to divulge our actual names where possible. Isn't this a GDPR/personal data issue?
This is great feedback! As a result of this and others, we recently implemented these changes on Companion. Your information displays dependent on your medium of play now: if it’s an online event, ONLY your display names appears. If it’s an in-person event, ONLY your first and last name will appear. This is also true in EventLink, the partner tool of Companion used by WPN retailers to manage events.
Thanks for taking the time to share this valuable feedback. You’ve made a difference in Companion.
I agree with this. Normally I wouldn't care but everything is online now and we all know each other through our screen names. Many of us want to keep our real identity off the web.
The very fact this comment is posted under my Arena alias is supremely ironic given I can't list myself as that on the companion app itself without the workaround.
