    Name reservations will be allowed two weeks before launch. How exactly this will go is yet unclear.

    agreed, it should say something like "Your account we be updated once your order is fulfilled"

    Awaiting further info on this as well. I have never pre-purchased a game in order to have access to the little gadgets they give until now, but I am sure Carbine or the mods here will assist us when the info becomes available.

    But I feel ya, ran a Stimulate/Stimulant in wow for 7 years and would like to keep those handles for my mordesh and cassain come May 31

    This is very specific and the first time I had heard about it. Was this said on Twitter or on the Beta forums?

    Ok so I got the game now and my sub seems to be working. Even though email said that sub has been charged from the card I assume that it didnt charge it yet (like it said that it wont be charged until my free month expires) cause it will last for 3 Jul. Might be just automated message saying that it is now charged.

    So my game type says: Standard even though im 110% that I bought the deluxe edition. Is this normal? Next to my cd key it says in description: Collector so I'm little confused about this? :D

    Shhhh!

    I'm still throwing money at my screen. Which I'm kind of running out of. So I'm just throwing other things until Amazon sends me the code.

    I did my via NCSoft 15 minutes after launch. I paid via PayPal and was instantly able to apply the Deluxe code to my existing account. I then added a subscription which I paid for via AMEX. I got the confirmation emails for the AMEX sub with the order# within the hour, BUT my subscription status was not updated on the website until now, more than 2 hours later.I did send in an email and got an automated response.

    TL:DR
    Bought deluxe via PayPal - updated immediately
    Bought subscription via Credit Card - 2 hours until update.

    I don't have any I really feel the need to reserve for myself. I might take one or more iterations of Franbunny on a few servers or the global handle just to spite him.

    I hear there is already a petition to ban with donations as incentive, so here's to crossing our fingers...

    Not saying it isn't the case or even unlikely but without a source it's speculation for now.

    I'd imagine it will likely be the case. Give everyone a chance to pre-order and be given notice as to when names will open. Would still like to see how this will work in regards to level of uniqueness (server, region, global).

    He gamejumps anyways and isn't even max on his precious TERA, so I'm hoping he jumps to 'the next big thing' in the near future after launch. Watching eagerly to /ignore whatever name/global handle he settles on.

    It might turn out something like this, if history with NCSoft server architecture is any indicator. It was a decent system, I thought hashes were somehow involved too for duplicates but my memory is hazy on that.
