i think the name change should be based on the characters age or time since last logged in rather than where the account holder is from.

@Decanus They made this choice because it will affect the least amount of players. The Euro servers simply have the smaller population.

@Decanus I agree with the above. The solution of first-come-first-serve affects TWICE as many people as the currently solution and is therefore unworkable.

Europeans wanted a list merge, they got it. Be careful what you wish for.

@Daemodand

How would it affect twice as many people? The number of global name collisions will be the same and thus the number of people who would need to change are the same.

However, it is technically simpler to do it this way. Not necessarily better.

That screenshot shows the $5 a month Jetpack that always gets people excited when they see it in preview videos. "Oh, jetpacks!" Nope, it's just the same ol' $5 a month Jetpack we've had for a while. Kinda sad, really.

It's been confirmed back items are coming at some point, though. In all honesty though, this kind of thing should have been in at launch or very soon thereafter. It's a great game, but with some peculiar designed-in-for-no-good-reason limitations.
