Do anyone know If we keep our full name after the FF11 server is shut down? Leviathan survived the merge once again.

You've already created your character in FFXIV, nothing that happens to the servers in FFXI at this point will affect your name.

Perhaps the right question would be if you'll get to keep your name when the FFXIV servers merge?

I better, **** it. One of the reasons I bought the CE was to reserve my name.

Agreed. I think the best way to determine who keeps their name would be:

1. Does one player have a CE account? He/she keeps his/her name.

2. If both players have CE accounts, who started their character with that name first? He/she gets to keep his/her name.

3. If neither player has a CE account, see solution from 2.

I'm confused, the FFXIV servers are already getting merges? I am sure nothing that happens in FFXI will affect this game. To answer your question what happened last time in FFXI was the players who moved from the "source" world had to change their names if a character already existed with that name on the world they were moved to. So if you're on a server that has players coming to it then you will have nothing to worry about.

I reread the first post and get what your saying now and I can already tell you that changing your name in XI won't affect your XIV name since I have done it when I switched servers a few months ago.

I'm 99.9999999% sure that your name in FFXIV should be unaltered.

Considering how things have gone up to now, do you really want to bet on that .0000001%?

I wish people would just hop on the Asura wagon of booze and pts but the way they handle the names is completely different from XIV so I don't see the connection. I assumed the names are free from being reserved after the beta closed.
