Not really. They said "We're giving you free rename token!" and it hasn't happened yet. Cartel Market option isn't free to subs.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

Eveni if it does go live, expect a glorious day in the forums.

If character transfer does not make it live... it will be rant-a-saurus_rex in the forums about how "Bioware iz fail!"

If character transfer does make it live... it will still be rant-a-saurus_rex in the forums, but it will center on "how dare they go live with that price!" and/or "how dare they not offer a bulk discount... we told them we wanted a bulk discount!!"

Did the Free Character Name Change make it in? I didn't see it in the patch notes and have not found it anywhere in the interface. Am I looking in the wrong place? Ready to rename!

PS - Unrelated, but sure to come up... Paid Character Transfers are still looking good too!
Eric,

I don't see it in the patch notes nor do I see anything in my game mail, or regular email. Did this get delayed again? Or did my account get overlooked?

Thanks in advance.

Did this end up getting launched today? How would we go about claiming this?

Is there seriously no way to check for name availability in forehand?

Create a dummy character with the name you want. Then delete it, and rename your actual character. That should work.
