Can't you RPers like pretend you died then reborn on another server with a different name?

All joking aside, it sucks, just make the best of it, games are supposed to be fun.

I expect 3 of my 8 names to be taken, as well as both my legacies. Oh well, time for some apostrophies I guess.
You are playing a frickin video game.
You are not hardcore by any reasonable definition.

When I created my characters on ... the third day of early access?... I expected to have problems with names, since much sorrow was expressed in the forums that ALL the good names were taken. I had a list of 8 character names, and one alternate name for each of those 8. Wound up only needing one alternate name.

Now, the second time I might need to change names, 5 of my 8 names are taken on both servers that I'm likely to transfer to. On the other hand, none of the 7 unused backup names are in use, so I'm probably fine without having to change anything but switching most toons to their backup names.

The funny part of that is that my main is one of the characters that I'll have to change, and the current name for that toon is a shortened version of a name I used back in Rubies of Eventide, with a race that LOVED having apostrophes in their names, so I could always just go back to the original form.

I'll disagree. First, while that may seem obvious, I can name other ways of doing it that some people would feel more appropriate. Who's to say which way is really the most fair? Personally, I'm fine with this, because the people that are risking their names are the ones doing something. How would you feel if you lost a name because someone else decided to transfer to your server?

Go for the apostrophe, for variations of a name, not for accented characters. They really are a pain with inviting!

I decided to use Zachary for one of my characters who lost his name during the transfer. I actually like it more than the original! You could try that if you wanted... doesnt seem to be very common.
