I hope the same isnt the case for LS names.
I have "reserved" 3 LS names for our guild leader with the intention of dropping the shell so that he can create the guild afresh. Hope the name immediately becomes available for the generation of the new LS!
Ohh hey Hallie lol
No, it's not the case with linkshells. You didn't transfer it over from open beta so they should become available, + linkshell names aren't stored or anything like that and they are remade all the time, it has to be this way in case a leader quits and wants to transfer ownership, but is this an absolute? Nothing is absolute with Square Enix, but I wouldn't worry about this. Seems the open beta names get stored for a account, I'm just wondering for how long.
