It's unfortunate that serious roleplayers can't have their own shard. Hopefully, they will bring the survey back or come up with something else to support the rp community. I am not big on rp, but even I don't want to see twenty versions of XxXLegolasXxX running around. Plus, I'd join a rp shard in a heartbeat just to avoid the endless "WoW was the first mmorpg" discussions in general chat. It was so bad during beta, I had to turn chat off.

Lol I get such a kick out of people who uses numbers and some weird insulting names. It kind of shocks me how some people haven't realize if they can't think up a name they are on the internet and can use that computer that is right in front of their faces to look up really good names.

Half the fun in Darkness Falls pvp in DAOC was reading the player names in the kill spam.

Yes. Sorry I missed it, sounds hilarious.

I am also very good at ignoring or turning the cheek but  many people believe in the righteous good,nothing wrong with that,morals in today's world are severely lacking.

You know how many neighbors out there would not even care if they saw someone robbing your house?I have a friend who has tons of money,been retired since he was 35,he is one of those that couldn't care less what happens in the world around him because in his little world he has no issues or problems ,just loads of money.

Those people are primarily the people that irk me.. I am not worried about society's morals when I am playing a video game. I am more worried about what I am going to be doing in ESO. I could care less what other people want to name their characters as long as they don't take the names I have planned. People spend entirely too much time attempting to police the actions of others. Policing character names in ESO is not going to make your neighbor more likely to call the cops if your house is being robbed.

I found it unusual that ESO allowed such large multi-word names so I decided to embrace it.

I made the ugliest character I could and called him Retardo the Obese.

I have. EQ certainly had a naming policy, anything that wasn't considered appropriate for a high fantasy game. They actually sent GMs to get you to change names in game and gave you a few minutes to think of a new one. It happened to my Dwarf, Stoneballs and my mate's character, Gunzblazin. I'm pretty sure other games I've played have enforced name changes. Most games usually veto names at character creation these days though.

Friend of mine had Minjeeta in EQ 1. Took a few months before a GM caught up with him. They thought it was an Asian name, but gave him thirty seconds to come up with something clean.

I sense danger before I pre-order regarding ESO....  specifically, the character names, especially with such freedom open to players.

 

Did anyone notice a naming policy in beta? Or even more importantly, a quick way to report vulgar or perverted names?

There were naming constraints  in the game.I don't know their extent...but I ran across the limitation in trying to name a new character.

And with good reason, an mmo is much more then just a game, its a social experience, and i certainly hope that  names like frack69 are not on my shard

On your shard????

Did you already forget that there are no shards in ESO?

Well, there kind of are. Just not in the traditional EQ server sense. The Mega Server is actually made up of dozens of smaller servers that can communicate seamlessly. So, even though you don't have to log on to different named server, your character might be on North American server 112. While my character is on North American server 045. However, you can send me tell or group invite and then teleport to me. The game will then move your character from one shard to the other so we can play together.

correct - but there are no shards that players can see.

How megaserver works doesn't change the fact that server/instance names are hidden from players - its a shardless design like Defiance uses.

When you create a character you don't pick a shard to play on, that was my point.

Saying "my shard" is the equivlant of saying any/all server instances as you could be on any of them, you never know what server instance you are on (cyrodiil campaigns excluded)

ESO is M rated - so this should be OK. 

As long as its not racist, hate related or something vile involving kids, they will let it slide.

 

Someone said phallus - does any adult seriously have an issue with that?

Let players use stupid names - they only let themselves look foolish.

That being said I'm looking forward saving Tug McGroin,  Hugh Janus, and Max Power.

Actually most mmo do have a policy on this which is usually found in the TOS or the eula, now how strictly they enforce these policies on the other hand is quite hands in the air really.

I saw this all the time in EQ. You're a Teir'Dal in that game, not a Drow. In ESO, you're a Dunmer, not a Drow. Get over it. This ain't the Forgotten Realms you're looking for...Move along.

First and foremost I am no fan boy of any fantasy (I don't even understand why the word fan boy even applies to games)  however I would like to point out how wrong you are to your second part of you statements.

Teir'Dal yes it is a playable class of EQ however it IS IN FACT a Drow reference: http://everquestlore.wikia.com/wiki/Teir%60Dal

Dunner yes this is a playable class of ESO however the same as before it is a Drow reference: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Dunmer

I have a strong sense that you just have a problem with people playing drow elves and RPing them. Or maybe you don't fully understand that before all this mess people (like myself) were playing the board D&D with drow elves which literly created the characters and games and MMOs just picked them up and renamed them. However with that being said a drow is a drow and both of these races are in fact drow.

I respectfully disagree. I read your links. There is not one instance of the word Drow in them. They are Dark Elves. Now, Drow are Dark Elves native to the continent of Faerun, on a completely different planet than EverQuest is set in, or Nirn, like ESO. While they are all Dark Elves, there are numerous cultural differences between Drow, Teir'Dal, and Dunmer. Just look at their leadership. The Drow is Matriarchal following a Queen and a female deity. The Dunmer follow a tribunal, with two males and worship numerous Daedra.

Furthermore, I have no problem with people roleplaying elves. I do have a problem with people mixing and matching different lore, from sources outside of the native lore from the game they are currently in and calling it roleplaying.

You want to name your character Jarlaxle, Drizzt, or whatever, fine. Just don't tell me you're roleplaying a Drow. Suspension of Disbelief only works in so far that you keep the story within the rules set for that current fantasy. Also, I've been playing D&D since before all of this too. Which means you should understand as roleplayer that you stay within the lore of the established game. Dark Elves are in all three games. Drow are not in all three games.

Ok, now you are taking away my fun as a R.A. Salvatore fanboy.

 

But no, I don't try to do as you say above. I might if it was a Forgotten Realms online, but this is ESO. I won't be playing an Artemis assassin either.  But I will steal a name here or there based on a character I want to build, I use last names more when they have them and go with a non related first name.

I always tease guys who make assassins called Artemis. It's really a woman's name. It's the name of Zeus' daughter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemis

Every time I hear the name Artemis I think:

 

+1 Thanks for the chuckle.

I would assume that with the 'M' rating you are not allowed to:

- Create a character or guild with a copyrighted name
- Create a character or guild with a name encouraging hate crimes or other illegal activities
- Create a character or guild with a name referencing illegal substances, e.g. drugs
- Create a character or guild with a name that encourages prejudice or prejudicial behavior

Apart from that I would assume more or less anything goes. I hope there won't be a whole host of report-trollers in ESO. I prefer funny names rather than meaningless names, e.g. there was a Gnome-only guild in WoW called "Toddlers in Motion", much more fun than "Regiment XXX of YYY", "Guardians of XXX", or "Knights of YYY". I tire quickly of those.

Anyway, you get those sorts of names in a pvp game. For some reason hardcore pvp guilds and many pvp players in general love those sorts of names. I don't get it, but I've seen it a lot in pvp games.


Actually, since Beta keys were free...I don't see how it does. However, people who wish to "be in your face" have money too.

/shrugs as others have said, ignore them or use them as a barometer of the player's worth.

As someone mentioned before, if you can't take your character/name a tad seriously then you can't take the game seriously and I'll breeze over you when seeking group/guild members. Your naming convention is a reflection on yourself.

I would say the RVR Crowd in DAOC was not as bad as people are today about names, then again humor and wit were a tad sharper back in the day. Nothing like kill spam --- Thunedar was killed by Penetration.
