Lillitha, the thing is that I can read... and what you actually said that I "jumped on" was the statement that it "wasn't cool" that you might lose your name. First of all it's totally preventable. Second of all There's not one ******* thing that is uncool about it.
Fact 1: You aren't currently paying for that name.
Fact 2: There is absolutely no logic behind them preventing someone else from having that name if said person is plunking down a subscription fee.
Fact 3: You said you MAY reopen your account when 2.0 drops... which is almost a year away... which, forgive me for having reading comprehension here, implies that you do not plan to start paying until next year if you decide to play at all.
So please tell me where I am getting confused here. Every single thing I just typed is either directly stated or clearly implied in your posts... ****, in the other thread you started about this topic you used the phrase "If I reactivate my account"
So now you are ******** at me for calling you out and saying I can't read when all I am doing is taking DIRECT ******* QUOTES FROM YOUR POSTS and asking you why you are saying something like that (which is clearly either ignorant or just plain retarded). If you don't currently pay for a subscription, your character name SHOULD NOT be safe. There's no earthly reason for it. SE shouldn't use telepathy to realize that you MIGHT come back for 2.0 so they'd better save your name...
The person who subscribes tomorrow probably also bought a new rig, and the game, and, most importantly, will be paying a subscription fee. Why shouldn't they have access to a name that belonged to a person who quit the game, may or may not even come back, and currently invests 0 dollars into the game.
SE holds that name for you right now as a courtesy. There's no law saying that they must. You aren't doing anything that supports them in any way. ****, you are all over these forums encouraging new people NOT to play the game... and yet it's uncool that you might not be able to have your name a year from now if it so pleases you.
Wake the **** up princess..
