Name wipe before Server Merges?

There's way too many taken names by inactive members for the server merger to be a "success", i feel it's a more pressing issue as well. I'd like to see names get free'd up before we're stuck losing our ign's with the merges.

    YOHOO IT WAS TAKING LONG FOR THAT TOPIC TO COME!!!

    To be fair tho it kinda does become relevant now, my guess is that it's 1st come 1st serve in therms of log-in with the character. So inactives with same name ain't gonna snatch it, but that's just a guess.

    Also true that now many names will be taken (sometimes maybe 2 or more times at once) so new characters on merged servers gonna have to get creative.

    Losing a few names for the sake of saving a dying game seems a fair price. It's gotta be annoying for the people who have lots of good names saved but holy heck the servers are dead and we all see it.
  • i have 80 characters what about me

    I know that's a dig at Kami, let's just wait and see what EME has to say before throwing a fit at him and other whales.

    Son of a [filtered], now I have to name change like 4 characters to higher playtime characters. I don't want anyone jacking my names.

    Cool hope be true, i am tired of all my characters names. Changed for free sound cool. I only have 8 that love.
    So feel bad for people with 80 characters. Guess will be a bilonaire gold wipe.
    And ktera news said less gold for next patches.

    It's based on playtime on the character with the name.

    For example, lets say I have the name "Tera" on FF. I've had it since before the very first name wipe, so multiple years.

    Right now, it's on a level 1 character. When the servers merge, if I don't move that name to a character with actual playtime, and someone on the server we merge with has the name "Tera" with even say 10 days of playtime, they'll get the name. It doesn't matter how long it's been on my account, it matters how much playtime the character currently using the name has.
