    names seem to only be policed in this game if you ask for help from the devs then they screw you hard

    don't ask for help and you can run around until your hearts content

    with what ever douchie name you want as offensive or nasty or drug labeled as you wish most don't care

    just again and ill Repeat it

    DONT ASK FOR HELP

    even when I asked for help one time with an league issue I was never forced to rename the league or my character

    then your name didn't happen to break one of those stated rules or at least not enough to set off their name radar

    Your name isnt "Superman" Its "SupermanDCEUTM" I doubt DI cares about generic knockoff heroes in the game since they intentionally don't allow players to have 1:1 features of the DC IP characters.

    In a show it better be legally distinct. Since they aren't limited by assets but creativity itself.

    I don't think they have policed it for years. I have some Iconics and the servers are filled with iconic players which is a part of the game's population. And they give us complete gear and stuff to look like the iconics so... I doubt they care anymore.

    I suspect the sheer volume of names is overwhelming to properly police.

    Still a little irked my toon Dirrrty Sanchez was renamed, but, eh. You roll the dice, you take your chances. The one I really mourn was the loss of a league when we briefly had the option of having special characters in the name. 'Murica would have been a GOLDMINE, I tell ya.

    As far the iconics issue...eh. Jaywalking is a crime but that's hardly ever enforced. Lots of laws and ordinances are like this.

    Self snitching, lol. Reminds me of the ‘genius’ that posted the event for double marks went a day longer.

    Or, wait, here's an idea: don't violate the name rules.

    Wacky idea, I know.

    re: iconic names (not talking rude/offensive etc) - in some cases people made them before the devs added that particular word/s to the "invalid" list and I am guessing they arent goping to go backwards and force renames

    Aside from them not having gone back to remove things from the in-game filter, they really don't care now. It's an old rule that's still technically in place but rarely, if ever, actually enforced even if they do see it. I have several toon with the names of very major characters in their character names and have interacted with the devs in several ways over time and nothing's happened. Some, like my character MS Kestrel (unrelated to the DC character of the same name, didn't even know the character existed when I named her) or my other one GraysonKestrel, could be passed off as just the character and name not being "important" enough to crack down on, but others.... not so much. I literally have characters like WandatheHuntress (who's my main, too, so quite active), EmilyBatgirl, NightwingZoe (by far my oldest existing toon), BlazeSupergirl, AidenSuperman2, StephFlamebird, etc. After several years and several interactions with devs through Twitter, Discord, and the forums (I'm sure I've ran into them in-game far more times than I realize, too) as well as having once used customer support, I have never once gotten in trouble for my character names and if it hasn't happened this far.... I think it's pretty safe to say we're fine. Especially with the countless other Iconic based toons I see within a single hour of gameplay. Plus, just look at all the usernames on the forums themselves.

    If they want people to stop mimicking iconics, they might want to start releasing styles that aren’t directly pulled from them. Seems like we only get the odd thing or two in seasonals these days. :p

    Irony being that Constantine is amongst the most iconic vendors and he references a sexual organ wantonly by saying bollocks in subtitles which probably is not allowed as a character name by a word filter and can't be posted in chat with a profanity filter. Then there's the first time you encounter Amazo, he's called amazeballs and then designates himself as Amazeballs until he's told it's improper and changes it. I don't know about any of you, but I'm getting mixed messages about what shouldn't be said for the sake of decency.
