Are Character Names being reserved? Or will it be Free For All?

Just wondering because I heard someone mention name reservation but they don't remember the source.

Personally hoping it's a simple FFA.

My understanding is that Staff will have their names and obvious alternate spellings of their names reserved, this is to help prevent people from maliciously impersonating staff in an attempt to phish account information, or to besmirch the reputation of team members.

Aside from that are no current plans to reserve any names.

I think I'll put an opinion piece here.

Being a Beta tester for a Pserver is like the worst job ever. First of all, you're not a member of staff and have none of the privileges like shiny border lines on your posts. Yet, you're still expected to act as a staff member by keeping your nose clean and keeping your mouth shut at all times, lest someone on reddit use your opinion against the project. You are expected to do a very repetitive and pretty dull/boring set of tasks and manually fill in bug reports ad nauseum, so it's just like going back to school.

Then, having been used up for all the talents you have, you'll get spat out eventually with a pat on the back and return to being a minor scrub. You don't even get to reserve your name, nor a shiny tabard, useless vanity pet or a special title.

Understandably, good beta testers are as rare as hens teeth. Here in CF we are very fortunate to have some of the best around. Ser Elicas is one of those.

I am from the future and can confirm that people on reddit and 4chan will shit on every single project and act as if the sky is falling and the project is a failure 3 months before launch.

The future is cloudy on me getting ironfoe/hoj/felstriker in 1 day.

The future is dark on there being a US east horde raiding guild.

Beta testers do get those sexy purple tags below their avatars and their name is in purple in the who's online list too. Do beta testers get to keep those after launch btw? :o

To be fair, it is the best color.

In my humble opinion, Beta Testers should get something  that can be seen ingame. Maybe not a Tabard but what about a pet? The Little Panda or Zergling for example. Something like that :)

I think a special name tag would be fitting so the beta testers can receive acknowledgement. Anything beyond that is dicey IMO.
