Why does SMITE charge for changing a username?
Although the real cause is unknown, SMITE probably takes this measure to prevent system abuse. If people kept on changing their usernames, it becomes difficult for HI-REZ studios to manage the in-game accounts.
Is it possible to have a username that's already taken in SMITE?
Yes, it is possible. However, there are certain conditions that must be met
The person using the username that you want is inactive for a long time.
The person hasn't spent any penny on SMITE.
Then, you can submit a support ticket to HI-REZ Studios and ask them to make the wanted username available in the game.
Once you get a response from HI-REZ Studios, you can change to your wanted username by spending 400 gems. Hopefully, all of your questions would be answered by now in this detailed article. Once again, do recheck your new username before paying SMITE gems to avoid any trouble!
