New shop item - a stone of name change

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

there are some pitiful souls in the game that cry their sorrowful eyes dry because they cannot change their in-game name due to various reasons. To answer their needs I would like to propose a new shop-only item, that could be possible to trade in-game: a stone of name-change. Using it would start a procedure of a regular name change. To make things simpler, the stone should be priced similarly to a name change for p2p character.

 

This is a mightily great idea!

 

Cheers,

~me

Sure more ways for scammers and instance bag jumpers to change name but cheaper than color change stones.

Color change stones should be cheaper but without name change and name change stones more expensive.

The other reason for name change stones are after characters are sold and should not radu get a cut?

I don't like the idea. It sounds like it could be a way around certain restrictions certain players have. Also, in my view, there are way too many name changes as it is. It really messes with the sense of community when people try to hide who they are and/or we see constant new names but they are obviously experienced players. It also is a way for scammers to hide. While scamming isn't against the rules, they also should be made to pay the social price for that.

Disclaimer: I am COMPLETELY against buying/selling characters. That said, why should radu get a cut if a character is bought/sold? What does that have to do with him? That sounds like a tax, to me.

It's just another exemple of someone opposed to an idea, and looking for any argument, however contrived, to support his position.

 

Just like his remarks about it being a cheap way for bagjumpers and scammers to get a namechange, cheaper than colour change stone.

What he forgets is:

1- the colour change stone does not allow you to change your name (only colors/race/gender);

2- the name change stone as proposed is actually more expensive than a namechange through radu for non-P2P characters.

Apart from that, the colour change stone is the same price as a non-P2P name change...

Issues like that just means the server would have to track restrictions, name history, and other factors.

Yup. Fully agree with this point. It shall not be that difficult to restrict wrongdoers from hiding. Whereas pitiful souls that strive for some variety shall never be limited!
