BEST post of the day!

Also how would the game know which "Killercyborg" to mail my message to when I put that in the in game mail? Do they send a copy to everyone with that name? How about if there's cash they split it to each of em.

There would just have to be a system of uniqueness.

Currently it's <name> as the unique property.



With the cryptic system mentioned earlier it's <name@account> as the unique part.

All characters on your account have the @account as part of the name in the system, but they only show the name part in-game unless you have the options set to show @account names in chat.


This allows people to have the same character name while still having a unique name in the account system. You can't have multiple characters with the same name on your own account though.

Then how would I be able to mail you in game without knowing your account name. Quite frankly I do NOT want anyone to know my account name. I'm sorry but that's just asking for your account to be compromised.

I'm sure whatever name you pick is ********, and you think it's awesome. Otherwise you wouldn't think it's easy.

As for how to identify people, let them pick a global handle, not account name, and use that to mail them things, etc. Using a name without spaces and limited special characters as the main unique identifier is VERY antiquated and unnecessary in today's mmo technology.

Yet I can make a new character a year after the game is out and still find me a unique name.

Find something useful to complain about. Right now you're nitpicking.

Because it is <username>@<accountname> it works just fine in other games. Just because it is different than WoW doesn't make it fail.

This from a guy with Darth in his name? That's rich.

I still fail to see why me being American is gerund.

You mean like I know right now your account name is DarthKhaos?

DarthKhaos is NOT my account name it is my forum name. You do remember that you do not use DurdensWrath to log into the account even before they changed it from an account name to your e-mail address.

True. But there you are. A simple way to have non-unique names. But since I found out I can use both ' and - then I am happy.
