Kidding, but um can't they just put a fake last name?
and what about account verification?  



Since only the user can see the name put in the box, we can easily ask someone trying to claim the account as theirs what they put as the last name.

Alternatively, if they put their actually last name, our billing team can cross-reference it with any purchases they may have made with credit cards/debit cards/paypal/etc.

But mostly its just a nice text box for people who want to put their name somewhere.

Can you enter a fake name? Yes, but it isn't going to help you out much.  


I link my account with my FB cant they see my name through there? o.o'

I didn't say it was a required thing, was just a side comment to it being "useless" and not used in the account recovery system. If you only give the information they ask for when trying to recover your account they reply with the list of 11 questions they want answered, weird system but meh~  


I know, I didn't say you did, I apologize if you felt I was implying that. It was just a simple fact I was using to support my reasoning as to why it is virtually "useless" in that scenario as well. Though, as Paly has stated, more options > less options.


I personally have ran into some issues in the past with making my last name more 'public', specifically with the Aeria community (not because of the last name field). Because of this I have become a bit more sketchy with these things. I don't even use my last name on facebook (or any social site for that matter) any longer.

We don't actually see that you linked your account with FB. For example there is nothing I can currently see that suggests you even have one. Aeria (especially GMs) try to stay the heck away from our player's private lives.

Some use it to easily socialize with players and some use it to promote events/promotions.

Bee just a troll, trolling on Paly's statement about Aeria and player's personal lives.
