My name is taken!? I reserved it!


41 posts in this topic

Posted

So I have a character named "BlahName"(example) on Edan.

Does that count towards Uno?  I am unable to make a character named "BlahName" on Uno because it says the name is taken??  Or did someone really take that name?  I reserved my character's actual name... or is it a one time use??

And if I delete "BlahName" on Edan... is there a wait period before I can use the name again?  I know there is a wait period for the deletion... but to use the name again, is there one?

Any help is much appreciated.

pretty sure reserved names are by Region (NA / EU), so if you have already used the name you would have to get rid of the old character before you could make a new one with that name, but you should probably double check, just check the website, im sure it says.

I heard something about all the servers being merged into one with 24 channels?

 

That means names are regional right?

Yun Che is right. Reserved names are by region, not by server. So the reason why it says the name is already in use is because you are already using it. I'm not sure about how long the wait period is for reusing names, but I have heard it was 30 days.

30 days?

Seriously?

Is the server merge going to be an actual thing?

You might be able to talk to support about a name swap or something. I'd personally just stay on Edan.

Don't know about reserved names, maybe they are different (but I doubt it).  But if you delete a character with a certain name, as soon as it deletes you can use that name.  There is no waiting period.

But yes, it's by region.  So someone on Uno can't have the same name as someone on Edan.

Do you think by making a ticket, I can have that wait timer removed?

Like I said, maybe the reserved names are different.  You have to wait that 24 hours for it to delete.  But I deleted 2 characters and instantly remade them with the same names, no issue.  But I didn't use my reserved name.

Not sure how it works in launch, but in the Betas then your name would be avaiable to use once you deleted your character. Character deletion takes 24 hours.

When was this? And where?

It was before the official launch (3rd of March). A lot of people on NA ended up on servers that they didn't choose, and some had to delete their characters and re-roll on the server that they wanted. They reduced the deletion time of characters on NA to 10 seconds and also removed the name block so the people that had to re-roll didn't have to wait 24 hours. This was a temporary change and was reverted back during the maintenance on the 3rd of March.

FFIV, DCUO and any game that offers actual surnames, best games.

What I would do to actually have a game where I'm not putting extra vowels in my name to spell what I want /pain

http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/26081-head-start-issue-resolutions-ii/

Additional changes made during maintenance:

• Deletion time of characters for NA has been reduced to 10 seconds; temporary change
• Name Block after deletion of characters has been removed; temporary change
• Monster EXP in the Rhutum/Catfish area has been adjusted on EU and NA to balance the leveling areas and match the intended leveling speed/curve.

Then he's wrong. I've deleted 3 characters so far and have been able to use the same names, the moment they've been deleted. There is no '30 day period'.

I tried as soon as the character was deleted and then again the next day, no luck. Afaik, there is a 30 day period.

Nah that's weird. I got another character being deleted in 30 mins and I'll use the name, I'll take screenshots to show as proof there is no waiting period.

Nico Nico Nii~

Anyways, I've read somewhere that it would be 24 hours, not 30 days O.o are you sure it had been over 24 hours?

Well is it different for normal names vs reserved names?

Or if you preordered vs guest pass vs buying on release?

You should provide a picture of your reserve name, not an image that says "Name is already use".

I'm afraid it might be taken after it's been used once.

I don't see how posting an image of it will help.
