    Early name reservation isn't available yet. It'll probably be something that happens a few weeks before the game launches. Kilsin will probably comment after me with more specific information but I'd be surprised if it happened more than say a month before the game is ready to be launched.

    Kilsin made some comments about it in this thread.

    TLDR: Reservations not active yet. No ETA but likely during testing and before launch.

    hey Kilsin, say you did the 1k donation, where you get into pre alpha, they have the name, are they going to wipe all toons(names) before you can reserve a name?

    or is that kinda a way to pre reserve a name?

    Hey Rhelic, yeah, we will do a full wipe of all names, levels, loot etc. at the end of testing prior to launch then activate the early name reservations to lock names to accounts for the big launch day, either way, those who get in first with pledge purchases will be able to reserve the name first if it comes down to multiple people wanting the same name, which we think is the best and fairest way to handle it.

    So in a way it is a pre-reserve.

    Hey Kilsin, Is this something we will have to type in our profile info? Or is it something we type once we get in game?

    I am not sure how we will handle this yet but you will be given plenty of notice and it will most likely be via the client but too early to say as this will be a feature for the full launch of the game and we still have testing to get through :)

    Just out of curiosity is it not possible to do a pre name reserve based on our forum names?  Or at least make it an option since we have it essentially reserved here based on our purchase and account setup?

    It is but we have a lot of old accounts that have taken names and moved on that no longer support us, so a lot of people would miss out, hence why we think it is fairer to just start from scratch and allow everyone a fair chance at their favourite name.

    We will reveal more on this as we get closer to announcing it for everyone though :)

    The easiest way would probably be to simply let people make the toons, but not be able to log into the world after they do the pre-launch reset. Wouldnt need any major programming, or some poor GM working his rump off programming names into accounts, just let the selected people in, in whatever order they choose.
