Friendly Reminder on Legacy Names...

Not sure how far Back on pages or if there is even anything in the New Player section about Legacy Names, but sharing a little experience from a player that's been on since the start and before the start of Legacy Names...

When the Merges happened a few months back, Legacy Names No longer kept the Unique name that a player could get... It is now a free for all and someone can have the same on all servers like you... Don't complain to Customer Service you'll get we're sorry response with the info of no longer Unique and suggests you rename your Legacy and use a unique Name......

Now if you can't have a Unique Name, why tell you to buy a Legacy name change from the Cartel Market for 1000 Cartel Coins or whatever the Going rate is on whatever Server for the GTN, to name a Unique name that you can't have as only yours....

I'm dealing with this, a player not only having the same Legacy, but First names varied by one or two letters and same class. So protect yourself if you want friends to know that you are fair and nice in gameplay so that you do not get messed up if someone else using the same is not.....

Just sharing.....

Possibly. And I was wrong. A glance at the patch notes for version 1.3.7 shows that the uniqueness requirement was removed in September of 2012.

Ok so I'm wrong on the dates, and your ffs is not needed.... There are ding dongs that still tell new players on the homeworlds all kinds of crap that is totally untrue, changes that are incorrect and coercion for referral links, etc... Do the new players a favor and be a little less nitpicky and critical if someone is just trying to help!!!

My guild leader ill advised me on the Legacy stuff, wasn't a big thing, I am NOT an expert and never will claim such, but when I came face to face with another player with my Legacy Name, Character name with a slight variant and class it got my attention. So I am just trying to save a new player the crap I have learned..... from being told all the wrong answers when I asked back in the day!!
