In the past 2 years the RU community has cleaned up old nicknames twice. If someone hasn't played for several years and has less than 1k battles they get an email notification asking them to log in once, if they don't - they are renamed to RenamedUser_x, when they come back they can get a new name for free.

So basically players have an opportunity to get the name they wanted. Of course, you still have to pay 2500 gold, so it's a win win situation.

Yay or nay?

Wouldn't be allowed, even names with 2 S's next to each other are removed because someone gets offended by it.

I agree, good suggestion :great:

Some people are just way too sensative, that's the problem. Just wait until some sensative snowflakes gets offended by 88 mm guns (as in the 8th letter in the alphabet, you'll figure out the rest), then WG will get the interesting job of deciding wether to change it to 87 mm or 89 mm :D

I don't really care. I spend more than 10 seconds with choosing a non-generic name, so I never had problems with already taken names.
But... why not?! Doesn't hurt to tidy up a bit.

I don't care because I got in early and secured my first choice in name but I can see it would be annoying if you were to join now and you find your favourite name is taken by some beta tester who never played once the free gold stopped.

 

And if it can be done on the RU server then it must me a much easier job here.

 

Even if they said only accounts over 4 years old with 0 battles and 0 forum posts it would free up a lot of names.

I don't see any problem in this.

If people are not playing and they are given the choice to log in to keep the name and they wont.

Then its only fair those names are free for taking after cleaning.

Yes to this.  The two or three names I wanted and use elsewhere are all taken by dormant accounts.

I don't mind them renaming inactive accounts so they are free to chose again. But i wouldn't pay for a rename because in my case i was denied the nick by a player who never played a single game.

No they can't because then they can't say in promotional materials they have "XX" million players of the game :teethhappy: Doesn't matter than 4/5th only played <100 battles.

 

But on a serious note, if they can rename thousands of people with offensive names they can also rename all the accounts who have not played a single battle in 5 years or have 0 battles to a temp name. When they come back they can choose a new name.

Hmm you do realise that WG themselves created 150 million accounts to boost their numbers don't you? That's a lot of user names to clear up.

 

Heres a quick test for you, try searching for a player, simply put any 2 letters you want in and hit search, you will get a long list, choose 1 of them and you will see the account was created a few years ago with 0 battles played. You can do this a thousand times and still not get close to amount of fake accounts set up so they can boast about how many registered users there is.

Would be good to have a clan name purge as well. 

I want to create the HMSTR clan but it was already taken over in RU and unused for years.
