Anyone else getting the "Network Error" message when trying to connect?  I'm assuming it's because of the metric shit-ton of people trying to connect right now.  I just keep hitting ok and then login again...

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 

 

has this been made active? Did people who preordered get an email? havent gotten a thing about name reservation or the beta and yes I preordered the 49.99 package...

Alright, really weird question. I've reserved a family name and a character name, which aren't that bad. I would like to reset them and try another ones, but if those I would try to reserve are already taken I would like to get back the less good names I had reseted. So is that possible? Anyone tried? lol

Not sure if this has been asked already, search function didn't wield any result for me.

Can we "reserve" a name by making a placeholder character, delete it and retake the name, or will the name be locked into the database because of terrible coding? :D

I'd love to reserve a name for my Blader, since we cannot create it right now :|

Searching for info about this because of a test I did.

I created two characters on day 1 of CBT2; logged in with both, deleted one.  Took 24 hours to delete.

Upon seeing it gone the next day, I went to create it again on another account.  It said the name was in use.

I doubt someone took the name during that time, but it is possible.  It's also possible it stayed reserved for the account that deleted it for an unknown amount of time.  Or, the game has that awful database reservation for an unknown amount of time.

Regardless, I created another character with a name I'm damn sure nobody will end up typing, so I'll come to my conclusion tomorrow.

Edit: Seems someone did take the name; what a coincidence.  Confirmed now that names are not bogusly reserved when deleted.

Good, now I don't have to buy the $100 package and can have my friend reserve names for me... whatever ones are left anyway.

Yes, when u remove the current ones, try the new ones, if taken, be fast and re-reserve the old ones before others take them.

Always run a risk of losing what you had, especially since possibly more people are pre-ordering and trying to reserve.

Goodluck!

Searched through a bit of this topic but didn't find a definitive answer, so forgive me if this has already been answered.

I didn't know that Blader wasn't going to be available at launch, and silly me I reserved a name meant for the Blader I was going to create. I saw a post here saying it was "planned" that the reserved names would not expire, but did we ever get confirmation on that?

I was thinking of creating a character with the name I reserved just to hold it, if needed, but I've also heard varying reports about how long it takes to delete a character / get a "used" name back after deleting a character with that name...

Hi, Please can you clarify what the details are with regards to reserved names and re-using them?

 

Q) Are the reserved names locked to our accounts indefinitely ?

Q) If I delete the character that I have my reserved name, does it still take 24hrs to delete?, and when that character is deleted, can I reuse the name or is there a chance it might get taken by someone else?

Q) Are names (in general) locked out when you delete a character for any length of time?  so if I delete any character there is a period when my name cannot be taken from me (after the 24hrs)?

Where do we go to try and claim our family name?

This ^
No matter what I search it's bringing up topics from back in December. I logged in day 1, it said the name I had reserved was taken.
