Global Server Access Coming

We wanted to keep this process as simple and manageable as possible to allow European and North American accounts to access all City of Heroes servers. All European accounts with a name conflicting with a North American account will be prepended with an "EU". For instance, let's take a hypothetical European account called "Cityof". Pre-pended with "EU" would make it "EUCityof". That is the only change to account names in that respect. We determined that this was the lowest number of users that would be affected by this account name change. North American accounts with conflicting names won't be affected by this change.
