Three quick topics I wanted to cover today, as I get asked them a ton on my twitter!
Will The Nexus support name changing?
Yes and no. What do I mean? The current version of the Nexus uses player names as the key that gets all your stats, ranks, and other data. If you were to change your name, you would be treated as a different account. HOWEVER: Nexus v2 is BUILT on the name changing functionality being added by Mojang. If you change your name in Nexus v2 you, you will KEEP your stats, names, and any other associated player data.
TL;DR: Currently? No. In Nexus v2? Yes.
When will the 500 people be picked! Where is the link!?
The link to apply to be one of the 500 testers will be given out when we are ready. We aren't ready for some public players to join us in the wonderful world of v2... yet! It'll be out, don't worry! Follow our twitter accounts for the latest news when it comes to that. Trust me, the way to apply WON'T be hard to find when it's available. Haha!
Another sneak preview!
To further hype you guys up for version 2, I released a video of one of the many new modes we'll be introducing. This is the LAST time I'll be posting about v2 previews here, so if you want to keep seeing them, you'll need to visit my channel directly in the future.
