Okay... I don't know how this was somehow overlooked in the coding department.
However; People can now name their characters with key combination letters like this:
ăĆроиегц, etc.

This can be a major problem.
We're talking about:
Impersonation of other people, with a foreign letter of the same type.
For example my name is: Baal... Someone can make a character name with Вaal.
What's the difference? The B is an entirely different letter.

We're talking about issues with reporting exploiters.
Issues with people acting like others.
And also having names so ridiculous such as: ăĆроиег

Which makes it almost impossible to report someone for exploiting or using third-party programs.
You need to fix this and give the option for anyone with these alternate letters to change their names.
This will become a MAJOR problem and if you don't fix it now - I really fear for our launch when we have numerous people with the same names running around.

This thread is being flooded out by comparison to minor issues with hardware-> software relations.
Please... Bump this.

Unless you want someone impersonation your name and jacking your trades on the forums.
Fix this.

No one cares about names like ăĆроиег being used in the game to exploit?
How will a GM understand a report to his user?
Oh this guy had a weird thing above the a... and the a... and the a again.
There was also this like weird P and a no sign with 2 O's with different signs above it.

Come on...
