was anyone thinking that you could reserve your beta name for the release of the game? me too, but this is ABSOLUTELY WRONG
- Transferring Character Names to the Official Release
Participants of the Open Beta Test will be able to transfer their character names to the official release. As long as the World selected in the Open Beta Test and the official release are the same, the character name used in the open beta test will be usable in the official release.
that is their(SE) statement on name transfer, what happens in reality is its still a first come first serve. no where on that paragraph does it say RESERVED, only USEABLE. when you are creating your character and you get the pop up to select your beta character names, its still only an AUTOFILL its not a pick your character name from the reserve list, only FFXI names are reserved. i have tried numerous times and over 2 horus of customer support. my beta name "Tifa Lockheart" was taken before i was able to get online, i thought, eh, doesnt matter its reserved for me. no no it is not. just an FYI, this has been a HUGE miscommunication on all sites. well at least to my understanding :D
