Why is it that at the start of the game we choose a “Family Name” tied to our account yet we cannot choose our character name freely? Naturally, most character names are taken so getting one you like is extremely unlikely. You should be able to choose any name for your character since you already have a unique name tied to your account, no? I think this should be changed so that your “Family Name” acts as a unique handle to your character name which can be anything.

This is the game, and it has been out for over half a decade and this is the way it works.

Sweet reply. Makes a lot of sense. The game has been out so long that it would be impossible to make a change like this, and new players making characters don’t want this because the game has never had it. That makes so much sense. You shouldn’t want to change an aspect of a game because that game has been out a long time without changing that aspect in the past. That would be called “change” and that should never happen to a game if it’s been out for some time or if the current way things are done seem wrong or able to be improved upon. Nope. That’s the game. That’s how it works. Thinking about change or improvements is outlandish.

 

Anyways, the game has only been out for a month on Xbox, but regardless of how long it has been out, it shouldn’t be that difficult of a change to implement.

No, it has been out for 4 years and 8 months on PC. It has been out for Xbox for just over a month. Release date on PC was December 14, 2014. Regardless, they may or may not change things on the xbox. I lean more towards they won’t as most ports don’t and typically follow what pc does because it is an easier way of patching. I think everybody needs to stop saying they can’t, won’t, etc as none of us know truly what will happen unless you are an employee of PA and have decision making authority. People can make suggestions and let PA decide what they will do with such. Let people hope and dream. If it doesn’t happen oh well and if it does good for the person that made the suggestion. Not everyone will be happy with everything.

Yes, I hope PA will implement a way to change it, RNG % chance with xXxX pearls.

Rrrright -- and since the Xbox version is EXACTLY like PC -- oh, wait .. IT'S NOT.
Let PA hear suggestions and decide .. that is, unless you're the boss of PA, are you?

Cranky much?

Please do tell, what is not on PC that we have here on BDX? You can't count content release order, and can't count content that is to be released. Please, i'm curious as to what is different.

You do know that when talking in chat it shows up as your character name. When whispering a person you whisper their character name. Now you're suggesting they add the ability to steal preexisting character names because you didn't get the game in time to make a character with a name you like?

You do realize that this could be easily fixed? Set the chat to pull from a different source. Instead of [character name], use [gamertag/username]. It’s not like you’re creating anything. You simply change it from using the character name to using the username tied to that account/character.

And I suppose they should make the black robe track people by gamer tags as well right?

There is no "stealing" of names. There are plenty of games that have allowed gamers to share chr names because each account itself is an individual account. It's simply a matter of coding. For instance, I've been known as Corbin for many many years in MANY games. I would have loved to name my first character Corbin but wasn't allowed. It was unfortunate but it's something that can be changed and done easily.

I like the idea.

I started to use gothic type names that I borrowed from elsewhere. Neither 'Aluche' nor 'Arnice' were taken. So I just used another name from Nights of Azure.

My usual names were taken, also named one after some Korean god/goddess from myth, didn't read too much into it but it is a moon gods name for the Lahn

I do like the idea and it would make more sense to have a thing like that if it's based on irl style but it's a mmo and "Name Taken" is just part of it tho it's damn frustrating at times but that's how it is perhaps one day who knows 😜
