So I wanted to change my username but I can't (no complaints) so instead I made a minecraft account, well mojang because of the new system and I wanted to pick a username but I can't. I understand that to log in I have to use my email and I'm fine with that but how do you choose the username that people see you as in-game. Do I get to choose once I've paid for it or is there something else?

Register or log in to remove.

I believe you get to choose your username once you buy it, but I could be wrong.

I tried to buy another account too, but got nowhere, Mojang need a slap round the head. Misleading instructions and confusion. HOW DO WE MAKE A USERNAME???? Selecting 'register' just makes a Mojang account.

Your username is chosen after you purchase minecraft. I'll ask some people from Mojang if they could make this a little clearer.

If you are having minecraft problems, make sure to check out the help site.

Is this the same with entering a gift code?
