Bioware today announced that they will be retiring old character names from free-to-play and Preferred Status players in Star Wars: The Old Republic. The changes will not affect current players that are subscribed to the premium service as the changes are intended to give current players more choice when creating new characters.
This Character Name Renewal will have no effect on your character names. As a Subscriber you will keep your names throughout this process and benefit from the increased options released back into the pool post program."
Character names are an important aspect of the connection with your avatar and many players often find endless variations of their chosen name currently held by inactive players and level 1 characters.
The removal of names will begin after Bioware have identified the inactive accounts.
With the upcoming release of Galactic Starfighter and the wiped character names, there's never been a better time to begin your journey in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
