Yes I just got force-renamed again. It is still not fully synced so my old name may still pop up so here and there.

 

I continue the discussion here (WARNING: lots of text):

<removed>

 

Here was the old locked thread:

http://forum.worldof...ppened/#topmost

 

We are not allowed to discuss anything regarding player names here but we are allowed to do so somewhere else I was told. So there we go for those that have a Reddit account and also want to voice their opinion about things. I don't think that I am the only one that is bothered by this.

How much does it cost to change username?

I'd like to rename into Squirting_Elephant or something like that, but only if it's for free. I don't care if WG changes it back to Player1239081204961 in return.

Lol, it costs 2500 gold to change your name, has been like that for awhile.

 

Which about almost 9 euro (IIRC- correct me if you'd like).

 

9 euro to just change your ingame-name

 

Spoiler

I have to admit that this comes as no surprise! But I hope this is resolved in my absence :( I will still be available in private messages as I mentioned before and you know where to contact me to continue the discussion. 

 

I wish you the best of luck oh fountainous_elephant!

1) See your innocent username suddenly and unfairly removed - CHECK.

2) Throw a hissy fit and choose a username that is far from innocent - CHECK

3) See your new naughty username predictably and justly removed - CHECK

4) Throw a second hissy fit and ... PROFIT ???

Yeah the pick of second name didn't do you any favours. :P

First one should had been fine though.

Were you honestly surprised that the second iteration of the elephant-related name didn't pass muster?

 

Looks like Reddit isn't particularly surprised either. I am, frankly, not surprised about that, either. Anyway, I do think there's something rotten in Denmark. Many things, even. Honestly surprised WG bothers doing this stuff, since it's likely to annoy so many players.

The pink one should pick this. I mean, the first elephant-related name supposedly meant exactly that. It'd be foolish not to go with the above. Quick - before someone else registers it. :hiding:

They don't see your name. They only see purple elephant.

Thanks. Sadly Reddit users are a nasty breed sometimes. They also downvote for the most stupid reasons like "TLDR", "I disagree", "Get a life", "you disagreed with me? How dare you! I'll downvote you!". I expected it a bit when I saw the length of my post but didn't expect such massive downvotes while sometimes adding nothing themselves. They will probably bury the post soon as opposed to the original one from here that remained on top until the lock. And WG is never gonna reverse it anyway due to amongst others 'resource allocations'.

 

EDIT:

Post is buried already as are most of my comments. Viva la Reddit.

Spouting_Elephant?

Spewing_Elephant?

Gushing_Elephant?

Geyser_Elephant?

Blasting_Elephant?

 

You can turn it into an experiment to see how long it takes for you to work through the entire dictionary for any verbs relating to forcefully displacing fluids. Oooh, Fluid_Forcing_Elephant?

Hm that's too much.

But maybe the snowflakes will learn Dutch sometime and get offended by my username too, so there is still hope!

This is one of my other points: I see so many players (every day) with outright sexual names that cannot and aren't put in another context but my old (legit) name got double punished. But okay I'll shut up about this. This is clearly me beating a dead horse whether I'm right or not, plus we aren't allowed to discuss this. There must be something better I can do with my time.

 

I'm gonna take a break from WoT anyway I think. It's just that I have too much free time at the moment due to recovery time. Nothing to do but to read useless forum posts and play games and spent money on digital nonsense.

But damnit still got my premium running and got the UDES which is actually a hidden monster tank... But reallife will take over soon anyway.

If you really want to be reported I can do it for you? I'll even provide them with a literal translation, that should be sufficient, I think.
