    This John fellow you keep talking about sounds like quite the unstoppable force..

    Is there something that's supposed to be there? I can't see it.

    Jokes aside, I'd like it if my name was saved, but I'm not going to be flipping out if it's not. It just means I'm going to have to make a character the instant servers go live for MS2.

    I like Dope and SirDope, they seem like suitable names for you. They're also generic enough that having a name like that would be nice.

    I'm hoping they don't do any Beta name reserving as it's pretty RNG at the moment, as several people pointed out. I wouldn't be apposed to early character creation for everyone though. What I mean is having the character creation release at a certain time followed by the main game shortly after to limit server loads on the game's launch day. My concern is being there for the launch and not being able to get in and create my characters due high server loads.

    Personally, I think that there should be the option for Beta Testers to save one name from CBT, just so it isn't abused.

    @luxamari
    Limiting name reserves to 1 won’t stop this hypothetical ‘john’ if he really wants the names to sell. There is no system in place for any kind of name reserve I can think of to stop someone like ‘John’ from doing what they do.

    @clooneytune
    I mean fairness from the point that everyone has equal access to the servers at the same time (and by extension character creation).

    You really have no concern of people stealing other IGNs? And you would put someone who possibly didn't even sign up for the CBT equal to
    someone who was part of it from the beginning? I'm all for equality except when one requires much more time/effort. Also why not make this
    one IGN that can be saved unable to be deleted. Then there would be absolutely no purpose for John.

    And this is exactly why.
    If I play the game, I shouldn't have to worry about somebody liking my IGN enough to snipe it away from me upon release.

    No, closed beta is a random grab of people. I think it's important that no one feels cheated out of their names if they didn't get into the CBT. Early adopters are getting plenty of rewards, I think it's only fair that once the game goes live that everyone starts on equal footing.

    Would be nice to have since I saw so many people wanting a specific IGN. I don't think anyone would want mine, so for me it's not such a hassle or need to have.

    Do we know how many character slots we'll have at launch? I wanna get an idea of how many names we can all reserve on day one.

    Definitely an interesting idea, but there should be a limit in case people decide to reserve a lot of names by making a lot of characters.

    i wouldn't want people to be able to reserve IGN's simply cuz it'll get to the point where you just can't have a name cuz they're all reserved...

    This should not be allowed, and I hope they're smart enough to make that choice like most other games that have gone through Closed Beta testing.

    This Closed Beta is very limited and majority of us won't be accepted in. The only way to get in for sure is to be one of the people who went to the Maplestory event or be the first 10,000 people to finish all of the road trip events. The rest is completely up to RNG, which sucks because I would absolutely love to play Closed Beta...but I doubt I will be accepted, like many, many others.
