Good names are defined as names without numbers or multiple letters.

In example...

XxBryanxX or Jerold648797

Those are terrible names. Good names are Bryan or Jerold.

In my opinion of course (The terrible name opinion of course).

The problem is that it isn't really possible to rename an account without messing tons of stuff up.

When I was the Accounts Admin, I got requests daily by people who wanted names that were already taken, mainly because they wanted that much desired star in front of their name.

I wonder if the Graal##### has discouraged anyone from upgrading. People used to upgrade several accounts, I think because of the name. I would create accounts with spaces or with 3-4 letters in them for someone who already had an upgraded account, and they would upgrade the one I just made for them. What's the fun in Graal######?

Perhaps they cannot change the Graal##### accounts, but they could at least give the option of selecting your own account name when you upgrade.

I like being able to call people by names I can remember.

Please bring old account names back.

it's very symbolic, knowing that back in the day we all had names. nowadays, we're just a string of numbers with a community name

It has discouraged some players from upgrading. What I have been doing though for those that ask individually is reassign an old trial that hasn't been used in 4 or 5 years with the understanding that they have to upgrade it within a month. If they don't upgrade I'll ban the account, and yes, I now keep a list for when they need to be upgraded by. I cannot make accounts though so don't ask.

I wouldn't of insisted on this upgrade but certain people who shall remain nameless were trying to harvest those accounts then sell them off to other players or to see what kinds of items they can get off them.

People just really want that individuality that the Graal##### accounts don't give and I don't blame them in the least.

I usually tire of a name or account name, and buy a new one.

It's just the way I go about doing things. Anyways, needless to say - this habit stopped abruptly after the Graal#### phase.

It's bad enough that if I wanted a new account I'd have to pay monthly just to get classic servers. It's even worse when my account is some impersonal string of digits.

One other thing - Graal#### accounts aren't even taken seriously. I don't know how many times I've heard people tell newcomers "Oh, you're just some Graal### newb." or when I ask about someone "He's just some Graal### ***."

Granted, all that does is show the immaturity of the player-base...but that fact aside, if I were a new player and I was mocked even for my account (which I can do NOTHING about), I sure as hell wouldn't stick around.

i've also seen that happen to people, where someone with lifetime class buys a graal#### account, and is ridiculed about it until they don't use it anymore, and go back to their lifetime classic accounts. same with graal#### accounts sparring - they are ALWAYS newbies in the eyes of most (and to be honest i'm not sure i've ever been beaten by a graal#### account)

Plus it would get rid of the Graal##### confusion once and for all.
But I want to keep my trials

Also, with this new payment plan, what if you revert back to trial mode and can't pay it for a while or something?

You get to keep your old name if you have one. But all new players get stuck with a #### name, and they don't even have the option to change it.
