TERA PC - General Discussion: You can now check what names you lost or kept by looking at the server transfer screen.
Just incase anyone is as antsy as I was to find out.
TERA PC - General Discussion#2 Latza09/18/2018, 06:34 PM
Thanks for the tip. Lost four names I don't really care for, but kept my main's name which I really cared about. :)
uhm where do you check that?
TERA PC - General Discussion#4 Tsin09/18/2018, 06:39 PM
I'm slightly skeptical of whether or not this actually works, since after checking it I somehow managed to keep an incredibly uncreative name on a Lv. 40 mystic that I barely played when I know someone on one of the other PvE servers had a Lv. 65 character of it.

It looks like in the instance of two players having the exact same amount of playtime on characters with the same name, nobody got to keep the name (compared it to two never-played Lv. 1 characters with a name) and it's now up for grabs. That's about as close to a name wipe as we'll get I guess?

If it does work though, then thank you for posting this.

From the Tera front page, click account settings in the top right, then click the blue server transfer button. Open up your server and you can see if your names have numbers next to them or not.

Log in there.
Select Servertransfer under the TERA game entry.
Expand the server names to see all characters on them.
EME gave the wrong rules in the Server Merge FAQ. If you haven't logged on to a name for 30 days you automatically lose it to someone who has logged in within 30 days.

At least the names go to active players and not people that don't play. A win win situation.

30 days is a bit harsh. Imagine if you've played the game for years and decided to take a month off. You were given news about the merge (but not this lovely piece of hidden information) and thought you had enough playtime that you didn't have to worry. Then you come back and find your name gone because of this. I don't really like the idea of that.

Source of this ? Sounds sort of like a name wipe if you ask me.

What happens if there is 3 of the same name, one on each server and they have all been inactive ?
TERA PC - General Discussion#11 Elinu109/18/2018, 07:06 PM
I lost several names from TR but tbh I didn't have a lot of play time on my alts so meh whatever. From the FF server I literally kept every single name. I got lucky I guess.

Definetly a win win situation. Priority should be for those who play their characters and not for those who love to hoard names to sell them for real money.

I think people are getting confused with the Gameforge server merge FAQ that has the 30 day rule. The EME FAQ says it's strictly on playtime. Unless they used the same system? I guess we'll soon find out lol.
Well, lost three names. Fortunately they're alts that I don't care too much about

Definitely not on just playtime. I had a name on both CH and TR with one of the chars at 65. I lost it to someone that was 13 on AV. I haven't logged in that char in over 30 days.
I kept character names of alts that I hadn't logged in for months, so I don't think that's right

It could be that nobody else with that name logged in in over a month either and you had the most playtime.

Asume that character was on-line all day everyday since the accouncement, how many hours he may have ammased until now vs how how many hours did you have on that other character.

Remember that somepeople may have been using scripts to keep their characters on-line and not kicked by the server.
How is it decided if both characters were inactive for 30+ days? Does it go to whoever logged in last?

I had 3 65 alts that I haven't logged onto in 30+ days that lost their names to low levels. They're not super desirable names that someone would bother idling on to beat my hours.

Ya same thing happened to me. Have a level 8 character with about 30mins of play time and a level 65 with 20 days of play time. My 65 character lost the name to my own level 8 character.....

I also have level 1 alts I recently logged into that kept their name despite higher level chars existing with that name on other servers.

If that is the case then its going to be more salt trown to the wound.
TERA PC - General Discussion#24 Maddhawk09/18/2018, 07:41 PM
I kept all my names. *^_^*

However, I expected nothing less since most people prefer troll and meme names I actually use names that would fit into a novel if I wanted to turn my characters story into one.
Call me basic but I just wanted to keep one of my character's name, which I literally named after myself, it has my real first name. Guess I was lucky enough to keep it.
TERA PC - General Discussion#26 Vorlon09/18/2018, 07:44 PM
Didn't know about 30 day log in rule and lost six names. However, the majority of those names lost are for repeat classes on races I don't care about anymore. My only regret is losing my names on one or two characters due to me not log into the game on those characters in the past 30 days. Otherwise, I kept all the names to my mains and alts I play on a regularly bases, which I suppose is really good.

How do you know that level 13 hadn't been someone's banker alt that had been logged in for extended periods of time flipping things on the broker? How do you know they weren't part of some kind of lowbie club that ran around RPing as lowbies? Maybe they played 4 or 5 years ago and just spend months on end using Tera's leveling zones as a fancy chat room without actually leveling themselves. Any of these scenarios would rack them up considerable amounts of playtime.
I too, kept a name on a level 1 that was for sure taken by level 65's on the other two servers. I did not AFK on that character at all, because I already assumed I would lose the name.
TERA PC - General Discussion#29 hellno09/18/2018, 07:45 PM
Honestly the not logging in in the past X amount of days would have been really good if they actually let people know. It would solve the name wipe situation and a bunch of other things. But EME dropped the [filtered] ball not letting people know.
TERA PC - General Discussion#30 Maddhawk09/18/2018, 07:47 PM
I see people talking about 30 day logins. I have 3 alts that I have NOT logged into for over 3 years. All of them kept their names.

My char had a significant amount of playtime. I've had the name since the launch of the game (6+ years now) and it was my first 60. It's very very unlikely a low level had more hours, and my own low levels with few hours that took names from 65s backs up the evidence that a login within 30 days took precedence.

If nobody with the name logged in within 30 days then it's simply based on hours. If someone with the name logged in within 30 days then those chars would take priority.

No doubt they wanted to punish those of us that haven't logged in since Xingcode was added. It's really bs to, because since Xing hasn't stopped anything, people are still using multiple accounts at the same time and were afking on names they wanted to steal from others. I lost mostly all of my names. Good thing to, because it made my decision of ever coming back to this game pretty easy.

This is what I mean though. They tell us one thing, and do another. They are doing this all on purpose, so I don't know why anyone would bother anymore.

You should know by now that the last thing EME cares about are the players. They let a handful of people that demand stuff in the forums control the game, and if you aren't one of those people, they couldn't care less about you.

All they will say is, "Get over it, and if you don't like it, leave the game."

THIS IS A CLARIFICATION TO THE NAME RULES ON THE SERVER MERGE THAT EME DIDN'T FULLY GET RIGHT.

The rules that are applied for character renaming are applied in this order:

1) Has the account been logged in during the 30 days preceding the merge?

If no, the characters are renamed with a random numerical string, completely ignoring the playtime.

If yes, then 2) characters with the same name duke it out for the name, based on play time. Longest play time wins, shorter play times get renamed with a random numerical string appended to the end.

I recall they did this last merge. Before they gave any news about the merge I went around telling people that this would likely happened and that they should at least log on the month of the merge.

Assumed they just rid of the idea for this merge since I didn't see it once they expanded on it.

eu had it like this https://i.imgur.com/9yGgPOM.png
meanwhile na had it like this
http://tera.enmasse.com/news/posts/faq-for-the-tera-pc-server-merge
If two characters share the same name on merging servers, the character with the most play time will keep the contested name. If your character has less play time than another character with the same name, you will receive a tag indicating that your name must be changed (for example: “Best.Lancer.Na_1”). You will be prompted to choose a new name before logging into the server with that character.

crazy how na copies and pastes stuff from eu still to this day

I mean... how much more playtime could have if you think that back time when alliance was a thing i was echelon with that char. To be echelon one had to grind hardcore.

lol i have 2 same names in 2 differents servers, now they are in the same server :3
You know, I'm not gonna argue about whether the 30 day rule is fair or not.

But at the very least, if EME puts out rules on how the name resolution is to occur, they should be correct. You'd think that would at least be the bare minimum.

It's hard to follow rules you aren't given.

It says my main's name with lv 65 , but then again with alot of numbers as a level 30 ... did I lose it or not..?

If the name has a bunch of numbers by it, it means you lost it.

However, if you log in and input your old name when it asks you for a new name, there is a very real chance that you could simply resnipe it. A lot of "lost" names are basically just floating in limbo right now, obtainable by anyone. Source: This morning all my good names had numbers next to them. Today I signed in and inputted the same name when it asked for a different one, and sure enough I got them all back. Be fast. Good luck.
Most of my characters had their name marked as "need to change" but I was able to get them back for all characters, except for 2 that I didn't try to get back and just got better names (Because I was like, those names are gonna be taken, but hey, turns out they were not)

I kinda feel bad for people who lost their name, I wonder how EME is gonna get out of this one.
I actually recovered all the missing names. Thank goodness :#

Source of this ? Sounds sort of like a name wipe if you ask me.

What happens if there is 3 of the same name, one on each server and they have all been inactive ?

That happen to me I have 3 of the same named characters on all 3 servers and thought I was going to need to rename 2 of them not all 3.

Because telling players that they'll lose the names of characters if they haven't logged into them for 30 days is just to tough to do!

Whatever. Tick more people off. Another job well done.

Yeah, the 30 days thing wasn't even mentioned until the last minute, and I was so worried about putting as much playtime as possible on my alts that I didn't think to log into my main that I had since the first day of Early Access. And since I had work, someone sniped my name with a level 11 berserker.

I guess this is as good of a time as any to stop paying elite.
I'm sure it doesn't even has anything to do with the 30 days. If it was the case, there would have been at least one character who kept the name - but I was able to get all of my names back.

I'm also slightly skeptical that among all the PvE servers, no one with the name Tiddies logged in in the past 30 days at least once.

You might have logged in quickly enough to get your name back. I was at work, so even though it's impossible for anyone to take my main's name (I checked before the server merge and after), the 40 minutes of blank time when I'm at work is enough for someone to snipe Emerald from me.

The 30 day thing was also specified pretty clearly on this post, released after the server merges because EME is EME:

I think if multiple people don't log in within 30 days, EME just releases the name and the first person gets it even if the account is logged in. Since that's obviously a wise idea.

That would actually make sense. All the names I lost were because they were fairly common and I didn't log in recently. I just wish they made it more clear at first so we could have all avoided the panic.
Thankfully I was lucky enough and kept all of my favourite names ;u; The characters that got renamed were either characters I never used or had bad names to begin with /o/
I had to change a few names, only because they were repeated names I used on other servers, and I never had to retry a different name due to someone else having the new names I chose. so no problem here

This is how it works.

I lost three names, and when prompted to enter a new name, I re-entered their names - I got two of them back. (Third I didn't care much for anyway; I literally only grabbed it because I couldn't believe nobody had claimed Thulsa yet. So I got to yell in /area and /global and be silly while leveling it.)

To reiterate: if you lost a name, log on and try to reclaim it ASAP, as it very well may be in a first-come first-serve situation now.
