And if you join to a clan, you just add the clan bit, so on need to make a "new account" just for the clan"like GhostOf....

Lets say i join to "123" clan so my name will be 123_goldair1???

I read somewhere that in AG3 you can change your name. So making a new account will be unnecessary.
And for your knowledge you can't make a GhostOf account for Exit Path without asking the clans leader or you'll be put on the fake list.

I've answered the question already. I read somewhere that there will be a feature added that you can change your name.

To quote Cormyn about the clan thing.

cormyn wrote:

Groups? Clubs? Clans?
We're unsure of what we'll call it, but some time AFTER the public AG3 launch, we'd like to build the idea of a "club" or "group" setup where someone can create a group and invite people to it. These could be used for game tournaments, etc. where the players wouldn't have to be friends or followers to share comments and ideas. Users will be able to join as many of these groups as they like. Any group activity will show up in your activity feed.

Again, quoting cormyn to answer you changing usernames question

I'll finalize this with Larry and Dan soon, but right now I'm thinking that we might only let users alter their username one time when AG3 launches, and add a "previously known as" (pka) field. Maybe we'll award an "evading arrest" achievement or something fun to note that they've done a name change.

The p.k.a field would get populated with the user's previous username, and shown on their profile page, but would be un-editable by the user.

It's just he was asking if you can change your name in AG3(the new updated version of the website.)

Since what we've read and what samdawghomie posted about what cormyn has said there might be a way to change your username in AG3 without making a new account.

Official response:

Right now, users have been creating alternate accounts, as a way of joining a clan, like the "GhostOf....." accounts. In AG3, you won't ned to do this because we are going to build a group/clan system where you only need your primary account and can join as many of these groups as you want.

Groups/Clans (or whatever we end up calling them) will be a feature we add some time after AG3 is launched -- it will not be a launch feature.

Aside from this, we are also going to allow users to change their username, but there will be restrictions. We've discussed this in another forum topic already.

What kinda restrictions?

If this was already discussed, it was mixed in with another thread, so I couldn't find it ^^"

I think there were restrictions like you can only do it once every 6 months or so, or maybe it depends on your karma thingy...
