except they knew the amount of bandwidth needed... its called "preorder sales" and "projected estimated server influx" these are business terms. Learn them. 

Stop being salty, the average person most likely refreshed 1,000 times.

Seems like everything is slowly starting to die down. Even though you all might not have gotten the names you wanted im sure you all will make due with the backups or make new names now. Its good to get out of your comfort zones :v | Just remember that you all pre-ordered a pretty amazing game and no matter what it'll be worth on launch date.

be happy :U

Thats wrong. See let me explain something to you what happened was an accident DDOS which happens when a website is flooded with legit requests for assets, it's bandwidth will be overwhelmed and 'crash' the site. Now this could be stopped if you knew the amount of bandwidth needed to do so but would be a major wast of money unless that kind of thing was happening on the regular. So why don't you learn a little bit before you go hating on a company trying to do its best.

This is all basic information. Dont go around pretending your some tech savant you dip. This can be prevented and they cheaped out on bandwidth/servers. Expecting a company to make what they promised available to the masses is expected. Do they always fail...yes. Does it make it right? no?

You should learn what you are talking about before spouting stupidity. Oh wait, you have several other posts with the same level of ignorance, so... yah.

After going through the same stressful login woes most did, I was able to get my chosen family/character name. After seeing the confirmation screen http://imgur.com/jR2lLKG, I was almost afraid to log out.  It would be comforting to see this information on our account page, but so far, there is no other indication of name reservation.

Not my first choice for the name - I got Hikari then wanted to change it to Ethereal on a whim - ended up loosing BOTH hahahha
I actually feel like Gleam was the right name after all for my Valkyrie!

NOTE: IF YOUR CONFIRM BUTTON DOES NOT WORK THE NAME IS TAKEN (I learned first-hand) - good luck everyone!

You are not stuck with it.  You can release your choices by resetting and start over with fresh choices.  It is at the bottom of the page.

the average person refreshed a thousand times because Daum didn't take into consideration the amount of foot traffic that would hit right at 1pm. Because they didnt use those two "Business terms"

I'm aware they new but as i also stated that would be a waste of money because it will not happen frequently you cant just boost your bandwidth for a few hours and be done with it. It would be a whole server upgrade. Learn tech.

1. Barack Obama makes BDO account

2. He reserves his own RL name

3. DAUM takes the name away because he is trying to impersonate real person

 

*but, but.. it's me...*

It would still be against Terms of Service, even if it really was B.O.
