Account Name Reservation?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if we'll be able to reserve our current names for the new steam system?

Do you mean "current" like currently used on existing Wurm online servers? Then the answer is no, as it's not a "Steam system" it's just two new servers that will be seperate from the other servers when Wurm gets released on Steam, but accessible without Steam too.
 


No info yet on if we can reserve names in general though.

if you want to reserve a name, make the account now and keep it in the tutorial area, so you can go to the new server when its live.

That will not work. The current tutorial area is now at Independence, you won't be able to transfer from there to the new servers. There'll be more details closer to the release regarding the tutorial process, but as is you cannot reserve a character name for the new cluster in any way.

I can't enable GLSL shaders to be able to place items, my client crashes. Are we going to need it enabled to place an item in the tutorial? I can only imagine the other ways around this problem....

You can create a new account on the wurm website, put in your e-mail and nickname, but dont click the activation link in the email. That way your name will be secured for 2 days, just do it every 2 days and you're good

It'd be a good idea if we can just transfer our current account names to the new steam server then. Will be annoying to make a new account just for steam if it's using the same database.

I was under the impression we would be able to use our existing accounts to connect to the new servers via the wurm launcher. If this is not the case why not?

The new servers are only for new accounts.

I assumed we would just be set to 0 skill. If that is the case I don't see why we cant just make a new account using our existing names.

There is the chance later on that the new servers will eventually connect with the old ones. It might not happen at all, but there is a chance (and honestly, if the skills are high enough on the new servers I don't see why they wouldn't at that point anyway).

 

Allowing for the same names to be on the new servers would potentially create a lot of complications, not just with the above point I made, but also with other things. This isn't the same situation as Freedom/Epic.

If you can delete a character then it would work, if you can't delete a character then you have to make a new name.

Or atleast allow rename of Charakter....
