No accents in names

From the PTR Patch Notes (courtesy of MMO-Champion):

  • North American realms (excluding Brazilian, Latin American, and Oceanic realms) no longer permit letters with accents in character or guild names. Existing character and guild names with special characters will be unaffected by this change.
Best patch change ever?  Or best patch change EVER?
(I wish they would make this apply to current names.  Gawd, how I hate trying to figure out people’s alt-character filled nonsense.)

    No, I don’t think it’s the best patch change ever. IT’S THE BEST PATCH CHANGE EVAR!

    Srsly. HATE those stupid special characters 😛

    Windows ships with a utility called “charmap” that lets you find, look up alt codes, and cut-n-paste accented characters. Windows+R “charmap” [ENTER] and voilà.

    And yes, I’m sneering at your provincialism.

    Description: Assuming what is familiar is the best. The failure to see that other people are likely to see the world differently than you. Provincialism is displayed when the arguer appears culturally or socially, politically or religiously myopic.

    Not an accurate measure of the OP IMO

    I started a mage this week with a completely alt char name, just because I felt inspired from your post. I told the guildies it is pronounced “Ginger.” It’s spelled ßóñæçå. 🙂

    But I agree; I put the first letter alt char in my notes in the guild roster in case someone needs to send me mail and doesn’t want to punch me in the face. They’ll probably do that anyway.
