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.
