URL will be shared and opened (or leaked ^_^) once we open the process.

The process itself will be self-explanatory once you enter it. It's supposed to be monkey proof. :P 

 

Thanks.

If I purchase 5 accounts and reserve a name on each one could I reserve them all under a single account? I'm asking on behalf of the whales. Much appreciated.

Leaked? Nah leaks don't happen with BDO... never. haha

On that note i did find the link to the CBT2 client. haha Holding off downloading though as i don't know if it's complete or not and my DL speed is shite. :( Care to confirm is it complete yet and fine to download? :)

I only thought of the Family name, but I have no clue what to name my character since I don't even know what I will be playing. Even If I think of a good general name, I'm still not sure about the class I'll attach it to. Will I be required to pick both and attach the name to a class? Will I be able to reserve the character name a few days later after I reserved the family name?

He literally said in the OP that the cbt2 client will be available for download starting the 16th....

Awww man I have not even decided on my family name! It's such a weird mechanic because its above all our characters names, almost like a gamertag or PSN ID.O.o

If anyone wants to know what time it is for them just google search "UTC 18:00" and it will show you your local time.

Have you seen the posts from some of the forum members....

 

... that the name reservation page will open this Tuesday, the 9th of February to all pre-order holders. Name reservation is possible from 18:00 UTC.

If they cant comprehend how a "page" would work,  or how to convert between time zones using google, you are going to have to be more than monkey proof.

I can see that. That wasn't my question though. I already HAVE the link to the BlackDesertOnlineCBT2.7z file and was just wondering if it was OK to go ahead and get it slowly now rather than waiting for the button to appear in my account... Not everyone has super fast connections and I'd rather download big stuff like this in small bursts over a few days (like when I and everyone else in the house is asleep) rather than eat all my bandwidth in a shorter period of time...

I am wondering this too.

The only thing I have seen is in game or in the character creator. Nothing on the website or forums. Would be nice to get some details.

BDO_name_policy.thumb.png.2a48201dc11a78

 

16 characters is NOT enough! Especially in a game where names can be taken. What if we want to put first and last names? Like Firstname_Lastname? 16 is way, waaaaay to short.

 Also, only 2 of the same letter??? One of my characters has 4 "A"s in her name! I hope they mean in a row and not in the entire name. -_-

Sorry if this was covered before, but I know nobody can have the same family name as yours...Then can you have same character name with others?

For example, if your family name is "Super" and character name is "Man," Can I create family name "Ant" and character name "Man?"

Sadly no. There can only be one John, only one Gandalf. There can't be Gandalf The_Gray and Gandalf The_White.

Both Family and character names are unique and can be taken. :(

Use your family name as a last name?

Also, when it says "cannot use same letters more than 2 times", it`s not clear, but they mean consecutive letters. So you can`t have xXxSomethingxXx.

but Xenexiox for instance would work. Tested it in Character Creator.
