It's designed to let players start playing straight away, without breaking things later when they have eventually decided upon an identity. I'm fairly sure that's an advantage.
yes i see... but does there community name show up in there profile? I think there origional account name should show up in the profile. If not then that would make scamming easier... just keep changing your community name to confuse people.
