    No. :(

    I was one of the lucky ones that got in on first try at exactly 1pm and typed in my name and hit save. Save disappeared and timer stated ??.

    With no clue what to do, inability to interact with anything else on my screen and not knowing whether the name was saved, I sat on the page for 15 minutes searching forums and social media for information. Not finding anything other than hundreds of posts from people complaining they could not get in, I exited out of the name reserve page and could not get back in. A couple hours later I learned that the ?? on the timer meant the name was not saved. By the time I used the workaround and got in 6 or so hours later, the name was gone.

    Edited yesterday to get a 'version' of the name I have been using for years.

    Although it would have been nice to have the name I wanted, it certainly is not a deal breaker for me nor will it result in me enjoying this game one smidgen less than I do.

    Yes, there is no reason to be upset even if name was taken. If I couldn't get mine I would be happy with my second or third choice. See you in game.

    We have to name our characters?! Isn't there a RANDOM button or something to do that for you? Man! This game is way too HARDCORE for me. Next thing you'll tell me I can't pay to immediately MAX level my character.

    Don't worry, there's an easy one-step solution for the extremely casual player. When the game asks for a character name you just have to press your face into the keyboard and roll back and forth four to five times. Whala, you now have a name!

    I got the name Valhalla for me, and my hubby got the name Conan. I'm slightly jealous about the Conan thing because I'm the one playing a warrior. He originally had the name Merlin because he's going to be playing a spell slinger, but something went wrong with his name reservation and it ended up taking 3 days for customer support to reset his account so he could try again.

    Well...I just found out that the name I saved last week didn't actually get saved so....

    No one will ever be able to recognize me now! I'll hide and sneak up on people and...uhm...hug them!

    Alas, instead of a giant balled Granok I am now a slinky Mechari, so it is not to be.

    I'm sure you'll be one of those Aurins that get killed anyway. No need to search for you if we just exterminate your entire race :up:

    Got mine ok (although for some reason it's given me the option to edit it about 3 times when I've been checking). All saved and finalised now though.
