I actually meant the policies around types of name for example copyright infringement, for example could I be David Hasselhoff, Gandalf, etc.

Typically there are rules about names that can and cannot be used.

 

Found it:
 

12.1.2. Naming policy

 

The User shall not use on the Website, the Forums and in the Game character names, family names, guild names, clan names and/or nicknames that are:

  • Vulgar, abusive, hateful, racist, defamatory, threatening, pornographic or sexually orientated;

  • Referring to inappropriate parts of the human body or bodily functions;

  • Referring to drugs or illegal activities;

  • Related to the Nazi regime;

  • Related to political regimes or personalities involved or suspected of violation of human rights;

  • Promoting violence, ethnical, racial or national hatred, hatred regarding sexual orientation;

  • Impersonating an existing person;

  • Violating the intellectual or industrial rights of a third party, including trademarks.

 

The use of alternate spelling, for instance by replacing letter with number, in order to violate the above mentioned rules shall be considered a violation of the naming policy as meant in Article 12.1.2.

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...

let me put this into simpler terms for you... the cbt2 launcher/client won't be ready until the 16th; how can it be any simpler?

[sigh] i didn't want it to have to come to this.
Timer set. devices prepared. schedule cleared. bandanna affixed onto forehead Rambo style.
Sorry to anyone with a similar mind as myself.
For the sake of the name....

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 

 

Or, instead of making it hard to find, could we just get a link somewhere accessible a few hours prior???

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. -_-

 

Perhaps you can change your font so your name will fit ;)

Names you use in beta will NOT carry forward to the live game. All info about you beta chars will be wiped between end of beta and the beginning of headstart / Live launch.  If you want to preserve your beta name then use the name reservation faciliy prior to CBT2.

Practically speaking, don't people who buy conquerer's packs actually get to reserve quite a bit of names thanks to the headstart?

Not that I mind.

Well, you could always just delete the character if that is the case.

This is more of a community/ Guild question, but will people be referring to and addressing each other by Character or family name?  Since it is the same person, I was wondering if people would be known by their family name by their guild.

Knowing this will really help me determine what I want to use as a family/ guild name.

I haven't played any of the other versions nor the CBT1. Could someone please tell me how character name and family name are displayed in the overworld? Will we be seeing both, or just the Character name? I was told that if I were to have Floppy Potato (where Floppy is character name and Potato is family name) it would be displayed as the following:

Potato
Floppy

 

Could someone please confirm? Thanks.
