Well, i guess its a just in time to discuss the "problem" with the Character Names.

As we know now, next to the family name even the main Charactername will be UNIQUE on the Server, i guess thats a silly rule.

You benefit from multiple Characters in Black Desert, so i want to discuss it, that at least the Charactername should be NOT unique, cause i dont want to give my Characters stupid names like WonderTamer, CrazedWarri or the whole other things, guess you know what i mean.

Why the heck, the main Charactername must be unique? Its not enough, that the Lastname/Familiy is unique? In every World there are multiple forenames so i please you Daum, change the rule that the main Charactername isnt unique on the server. :/

Found your last post in the german thread about the reservation. But really. What do you want more?

Multiple "Kirito" or: Kiirito, Kiritooooooo, Kiiiiriiiitooooo ... u understand? I mean okay, the Familyname is kind of a "Accountname" but the Characters you create are bound to this Accountname so its linked and you will see the Accountnames above the Characters so it whould be possible, to remove this unique restriction for the "firstname". Nothing special only that the Players will chose there favorite names or do you want to combat with the 1XXXX other Players about one Name if the Reservation is available? i really dont want :/

So is the family name supposed to be the surname for all your characters?

You can see it like that if you want.

In reality it's your account name that will be associated with certain in-game features such as the friendlist.

Think of it as something that ties all your characters together, not a real "surname" per se. Of course, in the end it's all up to you and your RP'ing needs.

Well, you can call the Familyname as the lastname or "Accountname". Whatever it will show on top every others Character.

Nothing to do with RP needs or something, only the personal wish to give the Characters that i create well names. Iam sure not the only one, whos thinking to remove the unique rule of the Charactername. There are lot of Classes coming after Launch. Blader, Plum, Ninja, Konoichi and maybe even more, dont know the korea/russian progress.

How you will call them after Months if all your favorite Characternames are unavailable? SílêntPlûm? EvîlSwórd or maybe using more special letters with ^ ´ `

It also looks that we will become MEGASERVERS, there will be a massive amount on Players on it, much more name trouble. Really want but 2 or 3 more Pre Order Packs only to save with each of one pack 1 name -.-

I agree with this. all the names i thought of were already chosen (granted not very original names but still)

In the end i gave up and just named my warrior and sorc grimz and grims. needless to say. i do not want that at release.

I was afraid my character would look stupid with his last name on top but it looks alright so I can probably learn to live with it...

Only family name should be unique, no limit on character names. Right now it makes no sense , counter  intuitive .

I'm not really concerned about it to be honest, but I think it is fair to have a Family Name that is unique, as that is pretty much your account name. Character names should not need to be unique, as the Family Name adds the necessary individuality a player needs. I also think there should be an option to hide your character name (if there isn't already) so one could just be identified by their account name if they wish. Cheers!

Character names should not need to be unique, 

They need to be unique because people see your character name in chat, not your family name.  When you send PM's you use the character name. 

System isn't going to change, it works how it is now and it would actually be a lot of work to redo it as people request.

Ah that makes sense, and I am completely fine with that system! Also I saw you shortly this morning in game!

well i read in the german forum, within the "alpha" it was possible to create multiple characters with the same name but unique "familyname".

Its possible, why abandon it?

not sure how you would be able to message people if they had the same name. How would that work?

How could you tell the difference of who is talking in chat?

I know in JPN you must have unique names, as is RU.

Character names needs to be unique for PM's to work unless they recode it to family name

Last thing I want though is a bunch of ninjas all named Naruto or a bunch of wizards name gandalf

Also comes the problem with chat no one can tell who is talking

Neverwinter uses a system that works well.  You can choose any name you want for any character because its tied to your unique account name i.e. Example@accountname.  The problem then becomes having like 500 toons named Legolas :)

I made my ranger really short and in our version she still towers over most players. There's a lot of fail going on lately.

later if the reservation is available and you cant reserve your fav name(s) then you will curse the day that the eu community havent more supported this. So you will be punished to run around with a weird character name which you dont like.

NOW we can give Daum our Feedback to this and really, we should do this. It could not be so hard to add into the chat the "Familyname", the values and variables are already present (see character screen) they only need to add this to the chat, thats visible to all. Problem solved and everyone will be happy.
