    Question

    How is it possible for a character name to be reported "multiple times" when I was only in game on it for a grand total of 10 seconds before they disconnect and force a rename on it? Seriously, I made a Kul'Tiran, got the go to Stormwind quest, was barely out of the Harbor Master's office and boom, DC, forced rename. Also, the offending character name was "Fatboislim".

    Because there's more than one player in Boralus?

    At this point i'm not even sure who's more of a pussyboy, whoever reports names like that or the actual blizzard employee who reviews those reports and makes a decision to force a rename

    Pretty uninspiring and unimaginative name, so you probably got reported by multiple people as soon as you entered the game.

    Seems pretty petty for someone to report that name

    If enough people report it, your name will be changed automatically. A GM doesn't have to review a name that's been reported 19 times in the last 60 seconds.

    You can appeal this of course.

    There's usually quite a lot of them, in fact

    i reported a name called "urafukboi" or something a long those names only because the dude was , in fact , a douche bag (flaming in chat non-stop, whisper spam) so i thought it would be a more kick in the gut to report his name instead of getting him banned and returning under the same name

    That player should be banned solely for the fact that "fuccboi" is obviously the correct spelling.

    Come on, people.

    It doesn't get reviewed by a blizzard employee. The report name function is completely automated where you get force renamed if enough people report you.

    You came up with a stupid-ass name and enough people reacted and reported for it to be a swift process.

    Amazing, the hold that World of Warcraft has on people!
    When someone proclaims that "WoW is no longer an MMORPG", you can safely deduce that they value feels before facts.
    When someone proclaims that "WoW has no community", you can safely deduce that said person is socially inept beyond compare.
    When someone proclaims to be off playing "better MMOs than WoW", you can safely deduce that they mean "spending hours complaining about WoW on MMO-C!"

    Something better and more imaginative than Fatboislim? (The "boi" spelling just makes it even more annoying than it already is.) Consider a Kul Tiran druid named "Summerisle" (google The Wicker Man, if you must. Not the stupid Nicolas Cage remake, either.) As hilariously obvious as it is, at least it's better than Fatboislim.

    This. I can see people insta-reporting just because "boi" is gay, and so 20 years ago.

    I would name a Kul'tiran to something that doesn't break Blizzard's Code of Conduct and doesn't generate reports as soon as I log in, if it was important to me (which is obviously was to OP since they posted here).

    I'd google for "random fantasy name generator" and pick one generator, if I was really in a pinch and needed a quick temporary name for my character.
