Thanks Jetsu, for the detailed answer....OK I will leave the name complaining alone lol. I still don't like it, but now see it would be a huge undertaking to have both names non unique.
Jetsu, I totally agree with you that what you get to name your character shouldn't be a reason for playing or not playing a game. As you so wonderfully pointed out - we are paying for the enjoyment and entertainment of a game. I also totally get War's point. It is one thing to log in to a new game and not get the name you were hoping for, but it is another thing to be playing a game for 9 months and get your character name taken from you. Had to rename 3 of my toons on server merges - luckily none of them were my main. Although one was because of my main character, lol. Had I been forced to rename my main I'm honestly not sure what I would have done. At the very least that character would either be never played again or simply deleted after I looted him for his valuables. While the name of my character doesn't directly impact my enjoyment of the game, it most certainly does affect the emotional bond I have with my character. Shakespeare said 'a rose by any other name is still a rose' but he was never attached to his characters in an mmo. Sutek, just wouldn't be Sutek by any other name.
