Sorry about that OP, but things happen. I wish someone had said something a couple months before the changes happened.

Oh wait... THEY DID...

Not going to lie - they could have done a better job on the details and communication, but if you had been playing the game and had an active sub the DAY we merged then you in theory shouldn't have lost your names.

Some people planned ahead (Like years ago) and had same favorite names on multiple servers.

Honestly I have dealt with your shady Business practices and your double talking for awhile now and I'm feed up with it. The best thing that can happen to this title now is for it to get sued. By all means Ban my account you can take your worthless company and shove it where the sun doesn't shine, I'm over the bull ****.
It's unfair to you? How would it be fair to the other person if they had to change their name?

In this situation, someone is going to get the short end of the stick. This time it was you. Just change the name and move on... it's still the same character.

I kinda do think its some what unfair. If you are the incumbent from another server coming to a new server. If that incumbent has same name to an establish resident of that server. Then that incumbent should have to change their name not the established resident already on that new server.

These new servers were just that, New Servers. There were no "incumbents". They did what was the best way. The subscribed person with the most PLAYED TIME, got the name. It didn't matter if you made your name on launch day, if you then just let the character languish unplayed.

I got incredibly lucky. Hadn't played the game in months when the server merge happened, and none of my characters lost their names. But yeah, it sucks, and like others have said just use a space and last name. :P

alt codes are used for foreign lettering such as making the little accent above a letter
