    Well it is just a misspelling of "Pro Sieben" (Pro7) which was a German media group ("Sieben" = "Seven" in German) who bought the EU branch of SOE back in the days. It had nothing to do with any "Sabian" (which is a muslim religious group afaik) ;)

    It is account-based. Logging into the game on one character on your account will preserve the names of every character on your account. Active, currently playing in the last year, players won't be impacted by the name reclaim.

    Being banned would not preserve your name.

    There will be a downtime for this maintenance on May 11 (give or take a few days).

    There is an exact window of eligibility (have not logged in since April 11, 2022) and the reclaims will all happen at once on the same day.

    Please help me understand, I was going to take the 11th off of work but if it is give or take a couple of days then there is no way to prepare for the exact day?

    I hope for a seperate statement.

    Technically it´s easy to write a script which uses a list of * letter words (OG Names) which will try every name like a brute force.
    It should be clear to everyone that trying to sell names via LFG etc. should lead to a permanent ban.

    Mepps can clarify but I think he’s saying dcuo isn’t selling names just releasing them from people who have tven

    We'll confirm the exact day of the maintenance closer to the date. Right now we expect the 11th.

    Far as I remember, last name reclaim was a bit more than 8 hours.

    After they buy them off the hoarders who will scoop them up of course.....but hey...getting the name is the win?

    Well, the April Fool's gift potentially makes it easier for players to save their little used names that other players want. Both events are known by word of mouth, and that can spread fast, "Want to save your character's names without playing the game? Log in and get your April Fool's gift with just one character and you are set."

    In my opinion, the devs could have held the name reclaim before and during the Mr. Myxy event. I think that would have given a better chance of freeing up some names.
