Nickname claiming problems

ghostofshadows 1 year ago • updated by Hurts 1 year ago 6

I know the exact amount of days for each rank. I wanted to change my name 2 years ago, from ghostofshadows to Ghost, but the name was taken from someone who's rank was warant officer 4. When the nickname claiming ability appeared on tanki, the first thing I did, was to check if that player had made any progress, and he was still warant officer 4, so I wrote down the exact experience points he had, and that number has not changed til this day. Then, I thought I'd change it into blinx, so I went and checked if there's an account with that name, and found out that some one had taken that name, and was a Gefreiter. It's been 2 months since I checked for the nickname blinx, and that player is still at 691 exp points, and I still can't claim the name, even though it's been way more than 30 days. Then, I wanted to change it into Lamborghini. I checked 4 days ago if there was an account with that name. And I saw that no one had that name, so the next day I went on and changed my name. Then, I received an e-mail, that said the name was taken. Someone had just made an account with the name Lamborghini. Because before I filled the application to change my nickname, I checked and no one had that name. Please, tell me if there's something I'm missing, because it looks like the nickname claiming thing is not working.

Only thing what I can suggest you is to contact Help Support via this form and explain them everything about the nickname, they are the ones who can check the accounts and give you proper answer about this issue.

Hello.

Here you can read about New system for inactive nicknames. If people have bought crystals on account, you won't be able to claim the nickname for 3 years(if account is inactive.)

About ''Lamborghini'', someone was just faster to create that account with that nickname.

Blinx's account only has wasp m0 and the black paint besides the sttarting equipment and has used 0 supplies. How is it still not claimable since it's been more than 30 days that he's been at 691 experience points?


Plus, on Monday 11/9 15:00 UTC+3 I checked if there is an account named Lamborghini, and there was no account with that name. What is really weird though, it that if you check on Lamborghini's profile, he has 0 experience earned. I know this is weekly, but I also know that ratings refresh every week. He also has 0 experience earned on "Previously", so that means he hasn't played in more than 2 weeks. I also am 100% sure that Lamborghini was available on Monday 11/9, as me and my friend checked if the name was taken. Here's a screenshot of me talking to a friend about Lamborghini being available on Monday. http://prntscr.com/gl483r

I did it and all they say is "Nickname is unavailable, try another nickname". But, I've tried something else. I once had an old account that was recruit, that I only made to troll a friend of mine as it was a copy of my name with a slight change. I made that account last summer, so that's more than a year, and definitely more than 10 days. So, today I typed that nickname on the nickname change form to see of I can change it to that, and guess what, it still was unavailable. So I went on that accounts raitings, and it has 0 exp points. Then, I logged in that account, and it also gave me the prise for being away for too long. I'm starting to think that the nickname claiming thing is not that good, and tanki's e-mail support just don't care. Can I atleast know the exact day I'm going to be able to claim the nickname "Lamborghini"? Yes, I know it's 20 days for the rank "private", but I just want to know the exact day I'm going to be able to claim the nickname, of course if the owner does not log into that account.
