those who disagree are the ones who are already doing this or plan to. allow the amount of characters one is allowed to have December 20th when the game goes LIVE to all.
I'm not reserving names (always come up with my names to fit the character I'm making on the spot) and I'm against the idea.
No matter how right you think you are, consider that you might be wrong.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some people just shouldn't have the right to announce it.

Reserving 20 names is childish. Just like blocking in your prius by taking 2 spots in my HD pickup.
I totally agree.

Don't get me wrong, the EA is fine, but reserving 30 names is just selfish(not calling you) and shows a lack of human decency
You are like the rebel fighting the evil empire. Seriously, asking for decency on the internet is a waste of time.
It would be great to have but everytime someone mentions it i hurt a little because i know it wont happen.

As for OP, most names that get taken pretty quick are names that are either derivations of famous chars or pretty obvious names. Like Headhunter for a Bounty Hunter etc.

I always use names without any intended meaning, if possible close to the race lore.

That way i work around the problem. Anyhow, a char limit wouldnt hurt.

I doubt the people posting in this thread would limit themselves to 2 names only for now...they would be selecting all their names asap.

In any case, Stephen Reid has stated they will be opening up new servers each day as needed. So the day you get in, go on one of the brand new servers for that day and select all your names.
