Inactive accounts - How does the inactive account's nickname become "publically available"?

Aphrodite 8 months ago updated by adab_online (Moderator) 8 months ago 1

So I understand that you can get the nickname you want if the account with that nickname has not been active for a certain period. In the dedicated wiki, it says that you can claim the nickname only when you "register" a new account with that nickname. What if I want to change my existing account's nickname to an inactive account's nickname? How is the inactive account's nickname be "publically available"? 

Thanks

To change your existing account's nickname to an inactive account's nickname (an account that has passed its specific inactive duration) that is publicly NOT available, you should first go and try registering a new account with that particular nickname you prefer to use.

If the account associated to that nickname isn't linked to an e-mail, then it will immediately become publicly available and you will be able to use that nickname either for a new account or for your existing ones; but if it in case it has been linked to an e-mail, the owner of that account will receive an e-mail notification informing that someone wants to claim their account's nickname. From then, they will have 1 week time to re-activate their account by entering the Game, and if they fail to do that within the time frame, their nickname will become publicly available.


I hope my explanation helped clear all your doubts. Have a sweet day!
