As if coming up with character names in MMOs isn't already difficult sometimes, coming up with Superhero names can be even more difficult. If you spent hours coming up with the BEST Superhero name in Sony Online Entertainment's DC Universe Online, you may want to log in this week if you haven't for a while.
And I mean a WHILE.
Sometime after January 20th, SOE will be "reclaiming" names that haven't been logged into since July 20th, 2013. If you haven't logged into a character sometime in the last 18 months, your name will have an underscore and a Roman Numeral added to the end of your character name.
This frees up your actual character name to be reclaimed by a new or returning player.
Want to hang on to that perfect name? Simply log into your character sometime before January 20th and your name is safe.
That's one way to get log time departers to log in I guess...even if it's just for a moment.
Here's SOE's official breakdown.
