I got 3 names I intend to hold and actively use. Mule names don't matter to me so much. Domo never did the thing where once you delete your char you have to wait x days (no notice) until that username is freed up again right?
If it's like TW domo with 4 chars to 1 account I hope I can get it all in 1 go, and then remake them on their proper account later.

I won't be. I don't find anything particularly fun or interesting in the use of generic names from anime. I enjoy the creation of my own names (This forum name exempt, coming from Log Horizon)

UmbyZero
November 24th, 2014, 06:19 PM
In every game, one of the first names taken is always Luna. I'm gonna try to get it for my female character (my main will be male) because it's my cat's name, but I bet I won't get it. If I can't get it, then maybe I'll make another male and name it after my other cat. I can't even say "Hey guys! Don't steal my name!" because there's probably like a dozen people already who want it.

One thing I loved about DOMO, which aggravated me in some other games (like Eden Eternal), was that you could delete your character and then remake it with the same name. It's helpful when you realize you don't like your face and haircut shortly after making your character.

I agree, just be prepared to claim that name when domo releases. I hope they make the game downloadable before they open servers that way people with slow internet or processors log in at. The same time as everyone else.

LadyOkamia
November 26th, 2014, 05:44 PM
I wont be doing this because I know how it feels when all the names I wanted were all taken because of people having so many alts etc. So I will not be hogging any names. I will only have 1 main character and 1 mule to store all my stuff.

What about some kind of automated rename when anything named, is not used at all for a given timeframe?

Make "awesomenick" and "anothergreatnick" sit in 6 months and become "Robonick12345" and "Robonick12346" :p

.. uhmmm ... I now wonder if someone really will wants tag the "awesomenick" :awsum:

Carecrow
November 27th, 2014, 10:21 AM
.. uhmmm ... I now wonder if someone really will wants tag the "awesomenick" :awsum:

I'm after something very close to that.

Haven't seen an automation like that in a game before, I'd imagine the entire character would expire?

AndreaY
November 27th, 2014, 10:42 AM
Expired character I guess will not be erased, it always may happen you want "resurrect" your old toon from the dust and enjoy once again the play with that ;)

There also are every now and then, "return back" campaigns so better have a place to return to!

Maybe will help to setup a "rename flag" after defaulting names, so who really will returns back, can choose a new name on login.

TBH, I stilll haven't see any game deleting unused characters. I guess those characters just uses a bunch of bits on a database so no need to drastic erasures. Yes, renaming is a thing I already witnessed in the past. It happens more likely in the event of "server merges", in case of name clash you get a temp name and on login you will choose a new one.

But, IMHO, on DOMO opening we will have more likely to deal with server full and day 1 will be a login server hammering :COOL:

ZenDragoon
November 27th, 2014, 10:59 AM
To clear up any confusion, I recommend playing the game for a couple of days on one account and perhaps make an alt once you've got your feet wet a bit. But if you if you created like 30 accounts just to claim names then we'd have a big problem on our hands.

If you're going to claim a couple of usernames, please be reasonable and respectful about it. We don't want to have to intervene if this is being abused.

Let me know if you guys have any further questions.

And, say someone took the username you wanted by chance. They had no idea you were gonna use that username, or maybe they had every reason to want it as much as you. Don't approach them in game just to confront them about it. Hopefully it should be obvious not to harass people over names!

Of course, if someone blatantly steals the name you told them about on an alt they never use, then maybe you have some reason to be mad about that, but take it up with a GM before taking matters into your own hands!

The first username I made for domo had numbers in it. I was trying the game out for the first time so I rushed through character name/creation. Somehow I ended up sticking with the name because I thought it'd be a waste to remake character. I might even use the same name with numbers in it on this version too just because I can't be bothered to change it. If I were to make a username again on another game I would definitely choose one without numbers or squiggles in it lol
