Personally I think Account names should be individual but then you can have a display name as anything you like... think of the way steam is to GFWL... I hate GFWL for the 1 name only BS...

And can you believe someone had already taken the name Silverfish on day two of PS1? They never even played! Made me put a 25 on the end of my name.

Stupid twat.
One of my fondest memories of PS was razor tricking you into renaming your character to razor851ownzmyface. I remember when someone told me on vent i laughed for about 5 minutes. Thank you for reminding me of that.

I do like the idea of account names being one thing and then having display names not being locked too one name...

Isn't the "Make Your Soldier" thing on the Facebook recruitment app a name reservation?

I think that players should select one game name for their account and have that name be automatically given to all their toons created with that account. Given that you can only have one character per server, it essentially means that you reserve that name across all the servers.

I think it's just a promotional game on FB, allows you to get some station cash and some rewards but I doubt it will affect your PS2 game in any other way other then just adding stuff to your SOE account...

From TOG
For those of you that may be interested SOE has a "Planetside 2" fan page on Facebook. However on top of that section they have what is an app called "The Recruitment Center". Basically allowing you to create a Planetside 2 Facebook profile where missions have to be accomplished. These activities mostly promoting PS2 offer 1 of 3 tiers of rewards. These rewards are Station Cash the currency system SOE uses across all their games. Including implants and booster items to be utilized once "Planetside 2" goes Gold at retail for your in-game account.

The very 1st tier of in-game rewards is 500 Station Cash which comes to $5 US and an Implant for retail on your avatar in-game. I've already completed 4 of the 5 activities or missions for this first tier myself.

[Dev Question] Reserving usernames (Should it / Can it be done?)


I've had this problem in other games, where people manage to take my name.

I made this name in RuneScape maybe 4 years ago? I'm also fairly certain that im the only one that knows what it means :P

But someone took my username in Blacklight: Retribution, and a few other things.

So, I'd like to have a feature where we can reserve In-Game names NOW before the game starts filling up, so this kind of thing doesn't happen, or so we can rest assured.

Edit: thanks for the move

It absolutely should be done, and I'm certain it can be done.

speaking of names....do you think having a longer name will make you more noticeable to the enemies compared to having a shorter name?
