Merge naming conflict policy needs to be changed
I would like to draw your attention on name conflict management during the merge, which gives IGN, crew name and name account priority for NA players. I will focus here on IGN conflicts.
I think this system is very frustrating for EU players because:
no one obviously wants to have his main characters IGN to be superseded by a low level/inactive/bot characters.
EME has the capacity to apply more rational critera to the name conflicts such as the date of creation or the character level. These two critera are already used to delete extra characters during the merge if the total number of characters of EU and NA accounts exceeds 13 (for an account without extra slots).
So if EME is able to spot name conflict and to retrieve characters level and date of creation, why are these two criterias not applied for name conflict?
I think it will be far more fair and it will show more consideration to EU players if name conflicts are decided by character levels, and then date of creation instead of the current system.
If it is not possible, I suggest that EU player to be eligible for compensation depending on the number of max level characters which have to be renamed.
Thanks for reading,
