As promised, here’s the latest information on the character name release. The first batch (A-C) of character names will be made available for name changes tomorrow!
So, at around 2pm BST on 5th August, all you’ll need to do is head straight into game to check if the name you’re after is available. If you’ve already changed your name in the last month, you can use a Bond to change it again.
Please note: this is the first time we’ve freed up so many character names and offered them for name changes, and demand is likely to be high. We’ll be carefully monitoring and maintaining the systems that manage the name-change service, but we ask for your patience and understanding, should the system run slowly or experience periods of downtime.
After listening to your feedback, we’ve decided to publically display the list of character names only once the names have been available in-game for 24 hours.
So – you’ll be able to claim freed-up names in-game from 2pm BST on Tuesday 5th of August, but the list of available names won’t be shown on the forums until 2pm BST on Wednesday 6th August.
If you need a little inspiration, check the list out, but remember - the list will be accurate at the time of the release but will quickly be out of date as character names are taken. We cannot guarantee that a name appearing on the list will still be available.
