Player Names[edit | edit source]

Names can be chosen on Starblast before entering a game that will be attached to that player for the duration of that match. The chosen name will be displayed in-game on the leaderboard and beneath player vessels, along with some basic information about their score, shields, and gems. Any plain text names inputted will be changed entirely to uppercase letters. The input box also allows names to essentially include any combination of Unicode characters which can be used to input names with lowercase letters in other fonts. Each name can be up to sixteen characters long, and any and all special characters are allowed in the player names. As of a recent update, there is a censor in place that will pick up on any names that contain strings of letters that could be deemed profane. This includes any words that include profanity within them such as ""assassin"". Any names that are picked up by this filter are replaced on other player's screens by one of the names randomly assigned when no name has been chosen. There some names you see very often but they are not assigned names if you leave the name spot blank. (Ex: X-27, a popular starblast content creator, which X-and a number is quite common due to the same reason as why X-27 is common. El Pro is common for some reason, Nova is also a common name for various reasons, Turkiye is a common name in Europe)

If a player leaves their name blank, one of the following names are automatically assigned to them.
