However,if the server merges do happen I have an ide a for the guild!/character name dilemma. Whoever had the name first keeps the name while the other changes it. That's my view, I'm interested in hearing other's.
As a relatively new player that solution puts me at a distinct disadvantage. All but one of my 8 character names is taken on Dalborra and I think I can safely assume that I would be the one having to change. I agree that your suggestion might be the fairest way to handle it. And perhaps I shouldn't object as long as I'm losing my name to an active, subscribing
player. However, I'm very attached to some of those names and I already exhausted my long long list of names before I came up with those. Fair or not, the loss of my server + the loss of my names = the loss of my subscription.
