Name Reservation Discussion

So how long will my names be reserved for? I was planning on playing a ranger/archer as my main character but my reserved name is for a male.

But at lauch ill prob play a different class until the male ranger is available and then use my reserved character name.

You could always create a character with the reserved name as a place holder until the class you want is added to the game.  Just delete the character and give your new one the name you reserved.

Honestly surprised it wasn't taken quicker, took me like 20 minutes to get into the page when it was crashing at the start. It was my first choice though, so I'm happy

15 mins after name reservation opened and it told me it was taken! You beat me to it by just a little bit.  Tsk tsk Im going to have to hunt you down now. ;)

This might not be a good idea because once the character is deleted, the name won't be available until 30 days after.

According to official response the names will be reserved indefinitely.

At the moment, reserved names don't expire. However, there may come a time in the future when we decide to release all reserved names. Although, we would announce this ahead of time.

Not really, it gave everyone a fair chance to get the names they wanted. You could do it on a phone, most people these days have a smart phone that is capable of getting on the site to reserve a name. What would be unfair would be to have everyone use a client that requires a pc with the client downloaded. I fought with the site for 40 minutes trying to get the name I wanted on my phone no less. This was the fairest way they could do it, even with the crash still the fairest because everyone was getting the same error. Everyone had to jump through the same hoops even if reserving the name took longer than expected the crash didn't change anything or give people an advantage. First come first serve, if you didn't get the name you wanted, don't get your heart on such a generic name.

I got "Import". Im still very happy with my name as i was mostly worried about getting my family "VOC" for the dutch east indies company. Was surprised to see it go that fast! Most people got all anime char names :P

Changed my mind, awakened warrior fits well with Artorias

Also Abyss looks like it can't be used

interested in trading

will offer to pay for 3rd party middleman service to verify both YOUR and MINE are correct/true/real/not-photoshopped

i wasn't aware that family names appeared above..thought it would appear below. i'm very picky :/ Wolf-Outlaw doesn't have the same ring as Outlaw-Wolf (imo)
