I would like the option to purchase a name change (with limitations), especially for older characters that were either created when some of us were probably teenagers, or were sold.
I realize this comes up periodically. There hasn’t been a recent topic on it, though, and I would like to express my support for it. I also have some solutions for people’s concerns.
Most people look at Employment History first, which would not change regardless of character name. Additionally, there could be an area in Employment History that says “Also known as: etc.” Perhaps, limiting name changes to once every 5 years would prevent abuse of the system, as well. I see no downside that cannot be addressed, and the upside is more money for CCP. You guys like money, right?
If someone really wanted to hide their identity, they could do it with a skill-injected alt. For older characters not engaged in nefarious things, there’s no other option.
Thank you for reading.
