3 months wait in between name changing?

3 months wait in between name changing? I'd just like to know why a 3 month wait exists.

I could understand if it was on the same character, but within the same account? Not really.

One of my characters has a pretty inappropriate name annnnddd, naturally, I'd like to change it so I could play it without feeling embarrassed. But I've already changed one of my characters names not too long ago.

I bought ogrines for this and AFTER ALL THAT, see that I have to wait 3 months. How disappointing. That's too friggin' long.

Will my ogrines even last that long? Why do they even expire? If they expire before then, I'm going to be pretty angry, just sayin'.

It especially doesn't make sense to me because the more somebody changes their name, the more money you make, correct? Or is it really that big of a problem for you guys?

Since my name is inappropriate, I would like a mod to make an exception for me to change it. But since this is unrealistic with ankama, I hope it isn't enough to ask to have a mod so gracefully justify the reasoning behind this 3 month wait? I'd like to be less angry and feeling like I got ripped off. Thanks.

O.o what were you even thinking to get a name like that?

In situations where somebody has an inappropriate name usually you get reported then an admin changes it to something random

Uhh long story, but we can say somebody else has something to do with it.

Something random would be acceptable as well, although I still would like to make proper use of my ogrines and get the name I want.

However, like you said I think its a little strange that it would be a limit on the account and not the re-named character. If that was changed I wouldn't really see too much of an issue

Ogrines should have a lasting life of 30 days + 1 day for every 100. So if you bought 1000 they would have a lifetime of 40 days before they expire. (worse than gift cards u_u)

also. please. option to recolour out characters

LOL, AS IN IT WAS THEIR OWN OFFENSIVE DECISION TO NAME IT THAT XD

I have about 5,750. I'm terrible at math but something tells me that it isn't enough.
That's another thing. I have to pay $10 to get any kind of ogrine at all, since I'm Canadian and paypal isn't an option unless you're paying $10 or over. So I just spent that much for nothing?

And yes character recolour would make me very happy. But that's another topic.

Not really, you can always buy hammers or wait for something new to come out. THere's a new costume in the shushu trailer for instance, look careful when they are throwing fireworks. Hopefully it doesn't take a million years before they add it to the boutique

Oops, seems I was a bit off! Its 60days + 1 day for every 100 bought. As long as you bought a single batch over 3000 and bought / used the rename scroll on the same day you should be fine
Minus the wait :l

maybe to slow down something like............ someone robbing,pk-ing or cheat on other people then they change name to run away, and cheat another and change name again.

Ahh... Mine are good for over 3 months! ... I still really don't want to wait 3 months to use my character, however. It's a Feca and with the revamp... Blarg.

Haha, it's easy to find out who changed their name though, since their characters are all linked to the same account/forums/friends list system etc. I don't think it's too ethical for Ankama to care about that though. Aside from robbing, PKing is an in-game feature and there's no need to prevent somebody to protect themselves from such. As I said before, it'd make them more money anyways.
