Wait wait wait....you say you "locked up your name"....what? You have to be in the character creator to create your name and if you don't create your character then...the name is still "open" for use. You can not "lock" your name and NOT create a character.


Give me an MMO that I can visit and have fun! Where what I pay for is not going to those that play for free.

I deleted and re-created the same character 3 times in 5min without any delay after picking the same name again.

1st time - reserve name
2nd time - created character... voice/body shape didn't fit my mental image of him.
3rd time - created character with more fitting appearance.

Each time I spent less than 2min between deleting the character and re-creating him.

This doesn't mean the above posters aren't correct, but the delay may not be very long.

Gosh, otherwise you'll just have to use your imagination...

If the delay is not by design it will probably never be consistent. In my case, it wasn't particularly long. Maybe 5-10 minutes?

are you demanding that your name be made available i don't get it. usually name unavailable simply means what it means. somebody is using the name.

It's a very short post. You should have read it.

I was afraid of this. That's why I wrote down the creation to my character in beta. Hopefully the create character options havent been switched around like they were from beta to beta. If everything goes well I can create my character very quickly the right way the first time.
