Name reservations
« on: May 12, 2014, 10:39 AM »
Reminder; name reservations start tomorrow.  I'll update this thread with any relevant info as it comes up today. 

Keep in mind, at this point once a name is reserved you own It for 90 days after launch on ALL servers so if you are attached to your name, get their early and get it reserved.

Ok, first changes:

Name reservations are global.  Both US and EU share the same pool.

Also, 90 day reservation time will be reduced... but by how much is unknown.  sauce

Will I be able to get in on this even though my beta activity has...dropped off as of late?  I will rage-uninstall if I cant get Bastian or Vika.
And I disappear, a ghost admidst the combat, preparing to strike.
It was your own fault; You should have paid attention and looked through the lie.
A most confused death, dead before he even knew where I struck from.
Farewell foolish thing.  Know that you have been deceived, as your soul moves on.

You have to have an active pre-order.   1 name per account.

Edit to clarify: you can register 1 character name and 1 guild name per account.  Both are reserved globally for the reserve period (currently 90 days)

Do I have to set up a monthly payment option?  Or is simply having the pre-order done enough?  This is where I'm at:

Just register the pre-order on your account as far as I know right now.  Hopefully the faq will go up in the next hour or two

First month is free, and they don't bill you until July 1st if you enter payment options, so...
Happiness is when you play a game so well that people call you a hacker.

There are two types of people in the world, those who can extrapolate from incomplete information.

To answer some of the common questions I've seen, here's how it works:
 
  • You need to have a valid pre-order code on your NCSoft account.
  • You'll visit the page on our main website (a news post will be published with the link, and probably tweeted/etc).
    You'll either:
  • Be logged in and click the big ol' "Reserve" button on the page. It's hard to miss.
  • Not be logged in and click the same button, except it'll say "Login" which will get you started and bring you back to the page.
  • There's two portions of the reservation screen: the left side is for character names, the right for guild names. Each field can be edited and saved individually.
  • Once you've entered a name into one of the boxes (guild or player) and clicked save, you'll have 60 minutes to make changes to that name. This will give you ample time to consider your choice and correct any errors you've made.

That's it. There's no extra save or any confirm or anything. You're done.
 
I'd recommend people login to their accounts before the schedule start (it'll say "My Account" in the top menu), as it should help reduce the steps into reserving your name!
