It appears they went with the info posted above. Quote: A: In the event of duplicate character names during a server consolidation, priority will be given to the character who has logged in to the game within the past sixty (60) days. If multiple characters have logged in within the past sixty (60) days, then the character which was created first will retain their name. Other same-named characters will have an "X" (or several) added to their names automatically until their name is unique. So if both players logged in within the last 60 days it went to whoever created the name first, and a Z was added to the end of the other name.
