name with Acute accent and Caret
I with quite a few people want a similar name that is already taken. for exempel we can't name
our character Pîotr or Píòtr. thats is frustrated for some people. why and how can it harm the game? I agree if it's hard to report or invit a player if his or her character have name with ( ` ´ ^ ) if that's the case why dont add in report player when you right click on the names from chatt and also add report player when you right click on there protret?
@Irox Blizzard adding accented characters to names was a huge mistake in my opinion, and has given a rise to a whole realm of unimaginative, unoriginal and stolen names. And the other downside is, you try to /invite Píòtr or /whisper Píòtr or /target Píòtr with a standard keyboard.
@Vulpinenin I agre it can be hard to Invite or whisper and target the character when the name has Acute accent and Caret for people that dont know how to write those symbols on a keyborde. But if the game only have names without symbols people may buy names from people that are selling accunts or names and more accunt can be stolen just for the name isn't available. Also Some people have taken a name and dosent even play the game.
If you want a name for your first character that is old and brings back merois you should have that in my opinion
And for those people that have done Iron man challeng or other hard challeng that wants to be know as that guy who did it for exempel 10 times on diftent characters how will that persons prove that her/he is the one who did it 10 times? Its hard to believe a character with an difrent name that isn't the same name.
some guild aslos requires the same Discord name as the name on there character, imagine if you have 10 characters with difrent name :C
@Irox Indeed, on other servers i tend to name my characters: PeacefullNPC, PeacefulNPC, PéacefulNPC, PéacefullNPC, PeắcefullNPC, PeắcefulNPC and so on... It may be not original but at least every time i ask for cleanse or stuff - i just say my name and they have easy time finding me.
@PeacefulNPC You mean to say that if you have alts with different names, you'll forget the name of the toon you're playing and not be able to say it in voice chat?
And about discord servers, you can just change your nickname before a raid to the name of the alt you'll be playing, it literally takes 5 seconds. Alternatively, you can just put all your alts' names separated with slashes if you're lazy.
This change wouls create WAY more problems than it would "solve", and there are alternate aolutions to your problems. Please don't allow accented characters in names.
