    Release the Names! Character Name Reclamation Coming

    Patch 6.0 Reminders, Warlords of Draenor Healing, Blue Tweets, DLC #457

    Release the Names! Character Name Reclamation Coming
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    With the upcoming Warlords of Draenor pre-patch (6.0.2), we will be releasing sidelined characters’ names back into the wild.

    Any characters that have not logged into the game since November 13, 2008 will have their names freed up, making them available to anyone creating a new character or using the paid Character Name Change service.

    How Do I Preserve My Names?
    You will need to log in to World of Warcraft and enter the game using each character whose name you wish to retain before patch 6.0.2 goes live. While it is possible no one will claim your recently released name and you might be able to snag it again, it is probably not worth the risk if you want to keep your names intact long-term.

    Our goal with this great name liberation is to make sure new and returning players have a large and varied pool of names available to choose from—so log in now if you wish preserve your unused characters’ names for your journey intro Draenor.

    I like it. Can't tell you how many times I've had to put in a ticket to have a name unlocked on an old character. Not sure how many decent names it will actually unlock, but still a good idea.

    Great idea, paying customers should always come first.

    They probably got sick of answering the tickets. Maybe I'll be able to transfer my rogue to my main realm now! \o/

    Well I agree tho, if you've not been active for a couple of years and have a name that someone who actually is active wants, they should be released.

    I wonder if this might lead to a system where after X amount of time passes without an account login names are autoreleased? It is pretty obnoxious that when I'm looking to move a character I have to wait a couple of days to see if I can get the name released plus I'm sure as the word got out that you could petition GMs to release names there was a huge influx of requests.

    Good effort, but six years is too long. Make it two years. If you've quit for that long, you don't care for your chars anyway.

    Indeed, why should a guy that quited 6 years ago get to keep a name that somebody who plays now wants?
    Obviously the quiter doesn't care any more.
