A Galaxy full of Absurd Names

Bioware has merged servers...once again!

So SWTOR peaked at 1.5 million subscribers. Total subscriptions created (active and nonactive) is even a higher number.

Lets be generous and say each server now has characters from 100,000 subscribers. I'm betting the number is higher. Each subscriber averages 4 characters (again I bet its higher). So now that is 400,000 character names on each server.

400,000 unique names.

Now nothing scientific or evidentual about this....I'm just doing some guess work.

People are going to quit or make some of the most absurdly ridiculous names that are going to pollute our immersion.

Thanks Bioware. Well Done Again!

Absurd names are not unique to merged servers. Those have been happening since day 1.

Seriously. This is nothing new. There was a Eetmiazz before xfers, and there will be an Eetmiazz after the xfers.
