Ya, someone posted losing a name even though they had it typed in. Not even worth risking it.
kids cant think of names to build an identity with? not suprising. be creative and getting a name wont be a problem.
Ok, so here is an idea to solve the 'full' problem. Forgive me if this has been said somewhere else already.
Why not let people pre-create two or three characters instead of one, but each must be on different servers?
This way, those people who are currently 'stuck' on Valley could log in and make a character on another server if they need to.
Yea, but this wouldn't be an alt problem. If you make an alt you typically want it to be on the same server where your main character is, because of the money and friends you have there.
It won't hurt naming to allow people to go make a character on a different server.
The only thing I wonder about, is for all these people who are complaining about this problem; are they really planning to delete and move to another server, or do they just want to expand the capacity so that they too can flood that one server?
Another good possibility is to increase that server's cap, but disable character creation. That way people can only log in and delete characters from there, not just fill it up to the new cap.
im loving the argument of "Paying customers who preordered shouldn't have to fight for server slots with non-paying players." when everyone who pre ordered gets to log into OB a full day ahead of everyone else....giving them plenty of time to choose a server before non pre orderers, jmo
What will you do, when that fills up again. You can't stop all the zergs + lemmings from all jumping on one server.
