Hi all,

I've just logged onto a server I haven't been on for well over a year.
Quite fancy making it a "home away from home" so thought I'd create something new.
How long after deleting a character would I be able to re-use the name?

Cheers.

I don't know. Try it. It only takes a minute.

It's supposed to be instant.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Essentially instantaeous... ie: as fast as you can delete and create a new character to the point of inserting the name.

I have done it a number of times in this MMO.
Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

Andryah is correct. I have done it myself a few times and as fast as I could press delete, and recreate, it was available. It should be instant.
