New accounts

Heard a rumor, tried something out...excuse me, but why did you disable the option to choose your own account name? Not sure if you can maybe choose it when buying a subscription, I just made a trial account. But thats not though out too well.
I mean, if it stays like that even if you buy a subscription, what about the damn forums?o.O

Well I wanted to change my account name last time I had to upgrade but all the good account names are gone anyway.

They should delete any account names which haven't been used in a year and don't have any subscription or lifetime classic.

Seems kinda stupid if you can't even choose an account name now.

edit: Actually it looks like email addresses are account names now.

The only thing about accounts i want changed is being able to have more than one account for a e-mail. Because i have two accounts and i don't like logging on different e-mails to check stuff for it. Sounds lazy but you know it stinks having to create a new e-mail if you want a new account. Just saying !

Yeah, Zero found this on his server before v5 was even announced

And needless to say we were confused.

But yeah, it seems a very bad idea to remove the ability to chose your own account name and to replace it with your email...

I think the point of it is to centralize the database and user name system. Maybe right now it doesn't mean anything but in the future we will see why everything ties to our email instead of account.

The only issue is if you run a playerworld and account off the same email, How will you login?

People who login as 'Guest' on the client need some form of identification. Thus it uses pcid.

You can choose your community name in the profile on the website. That community name is displayed on the playerlist and is used for the forums and wiki.

I know, I know...but I think the overall idea is not good, because you have no damn idea who the hell is who if you are checking accounts. Like you hover over one of the 14 'unknown's in your friendlist to check who you actually wanna meet and 6 of them actually say something like Graal123456 or pc:123456...thats just not cool o.O

The community name is the account name. From what I understand, the community name is what will appear in the playerlist and such when it's been set.

That would be good, but its said you can change it at any time (?), so that sounds a bit impossible.
