Cryptic Studios and NCsoft have announced that they have freed up millions of character names that were reserved up until now, by deleting low level characters on accounts that have not been used for over 90 days.
City of Heroes Adds New Features and Frees Up Millions of Names
Two new features come to City of
: Character Transfer and Character Rename. Additionally, we have completed a sweep of un-reserving names of characters below level 6 on accounts that have been inactive and not subscribed for over 90 days. This has freed up millions of previously reserved names all for the taking with the new Rename feature, or for that new Hero or Villain you’ve wanted! Heroes
Both Character Transfer and Character Rename features are available from new buttons added to the Character Select Screen. Please keep in mind that these features cost $9.99 USD per use and require that you have a credit card on file.
