World of Warcraft is an incredibly popular game. It’s been around for ages and it’s still receiving some upgrades, not to mention that it still has a massive following. Having said that, it’s very likely that some have left the game completely over the years. Why is that important? Well, the character names of course. Coming up with a great nickname is important, it’s part of your online identity, but what if that super cool nick doesn’t pass the availability check? Someone else has obviously taken that before you did. Now, Blizzard is taking back a few names with their latest patch.
The 6.2 patch will free any names from inactive user accounts, allowing you to use that particular name – if it’s at all available. The new patch will look at all accounts, and any name from an account that hasn’t been active since 7 December 2010, will be made available. If you don’t want to lose yours, you’d best logon right away, because the patch goes live on 24 June 2015.
