Hmm I'm really tempted to make a White Sands ganker account for some free being a mean jerk online.  Is Ranger still OP at low levels?

If I get a letter like that, I can assure you I definitely would never resub or purchase another funcom product ever again.

Yeah, I don't think they're hurting that much for server space that they need to do a purge.

I was drinking when I wrote this, so sue me if it goes astray.

They going to keep upping the ante?

Will we eventually see "login or else your 79 will never see 80"?

May be wrong but i'd guess the character purge is there to ensure smoother servers merge, with people who actually still play getting better chance to keep their character name in case there's conflict.

I think the <20 cutoff is fine considering it takes all of 3-4 hours to get there and if you never leveled past 20, you obviously don't care much about the character anyway.

So basically anyone not out of Tortage is pruned.

I guess 20 is the right cutoff given how this game is structured.

Cutting down on possible taken names is a good reason to cull, is this a harbinger of a server merge?

Apparently the server merge is happening just about now Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?  and turns out yes, the name purge was because of it.

Yeah, getting through tortage takes very little time.  I don't have an issue with this.

It is very cool that all the character names that are normally taken have now been freed up by the alt purge. Make a character and call it something that would 100% be grabbed day one like Blade or Drake and you'll probably get the name.
