Name Changes 


As mentioned in a past notice, identical names won’t be able to coexist in the same server after the crossplay update, 

Any identical Family/character/guild names will be processed in the following order. 


Name Changes

① The most recent login time, and active history, of two accounts with identical names will be considered before administering name changes.  

Active Account  Last login within 30 days as of Sept 6, 2023 (Wed)
Inactive Account Last login more than 30 days as of Sept 6, 2023 (Wed)  

* A guild will be regarded as active as long as one guild member has logged in within 30 days.  


Like the table above, any accounts whose last login is more than 30 days as of Sept 6, 2023 (Wed) will automatically be regarded as an inactive account and be subject to a name change. 

However, in the case of identical character names, even if the account’s last login with the Family was within 30 days, if the character in question last logged in more than 30 days, it will also be regarded as an inactive account.  

SEA: Last logged in Aug 30, 2023 
TH: Last logged in  May 12, 2023 
TH [GM]Heidel’s account will be deemed an inactive account and be subject to a name change. 

SEA: Family/Character last logged in Sept 1, 2023 / April 1, 2023 
TH: Family/Character last logged in Aug 16, 2023 / Aug 16, 2023 
SEA [GM]Alustin’s Character’s last login time exceeded 30 days, thus will be deemed an inactive account and be subject to a name change. 

② If both accounts/guilds with identical names are deemed active, the actual moment when said name was registered will be considered. 

 Any history of name changes will factor in the date of said name change into consideration. Otherwise, the date of when the name was first registered will be considered. 

SEA: Family name was registered Feb 5, 2019
TH: Family name was registered Dec 2, 2018
SEA [GM]Future’s Family name was registered at a later date and will be subject to a name change. 
* Only name registrations made when each server was officially open will be taken into consideration. 


Temporary Name Change & Coupon Issue 

Name changes will be carried out on Sept 6, 2023 (Wed) after maintenance, and all names deemed fit for a name change will see “_ASIA” added to the end of said name and receive the relevant Name Change Coupon via in-game Mail (B). 

* If adding “_ASIA” exceeds the max limit allowed for names, only “_AS” will be added to the name. 

Coupon Usage/Sales on Hold 

To prevent further creation of identical names, the following coupons were temporarily unavailable for purchase from Aug 30, 2023 (Wed) after maintenance to Sept 6, 2023 after maintenance. 

- Family Name Change Coupon 
- Character Name Change Coupon 

- Character Name Transfer Coupon 
- Guild Name Change Coupon 
- [Event] Character Name Change Coupon (7 Days)

 Thank you.
