Name Availability

Name is taken, but shouldnt be
I made a toon, got to level 7-ish, but I wanted to reroll a different class, and recycle the name. So I deleted the character, and right as the 24hour waiting period was up, I attempted to remake the toon as planned, but it tells me that it's still in use. Do names persist even after a character is deleted?

You may need to wait until the next server restart or maintenance. Also you can submit a ticket if the problem persists.

New siggy to come soon!

I actually think it's meant to be this way. In QB, once a character is deleted you can not reuse the name (I even tried 3 months after deletion). Also, same results in Sb Alpha minus the longer time span.

I personally thing it should not be this way though. =x

Did the wipe between Alpha and CB return the used names? Cause if all the names being used in CB are permanently gone once OB hits.... that would be annoying.

Yes, the Alpha and CB wipes will clear the names for re-use in OBT/Release.
