I am sure this has brought up before, but i can not for the life of me figure out how to use the search function on this forum :-x so i apologize if it has been.
Have they talked about how they plan on doing the naming policy? whether it will be everyone has to have a unique name as in CoX, or go the Champion's route where people can share a name and just base it off your unique global handle?
If not i really have to suggest you go the CO route, ESPECIALLY if from what i understand all players will be on one master server. It is just a much better system allowing people to grab the names they want, without resorting to replacing some letters with numbers, misspelling things, etc. while also being an occurrence in the medium ( Ever see the episode of The Tick where he fights the other Tick in the bar over name theft? hilarious)
