Server character name
« on: March 17, 2021, 10:36:09 am »
Hi,

I think not being able to change character, once we pick a character name on first server that name is linked to account and cant be changed, so wanted to ask if could be considered a server base character name and not account wide, this would make it less dramatic to pick a name at start and allow us to have character names for different servers and factions to fit different themes, also a downside of account wide character name, is not being able to go incognito in new servers to start from scratch,

Thanks.

Hello,
the purpose of the accounts system is to ensure that each nickname is unique. So nobody can impersonate another player on any server. It's especially important for PvP players when they're joining a server after wipe—they need to be certain that no one will overtake their name and that whoever they're accepting in their party/faction is actually the same person as it was before and not some random guy that may be a spy.

We understand that it's not always convenient to have the same nickname so we offer an option to reset it—just send an email to support@atomictorch.com and let us know your current nickname.

Regards!
