    Too many people with same names. Ryan comes to mind and Leviathon... there's a few others floating around. Weird that bnet allows exactly identical screennames though.

    Why does B.Net allow that now instead of it's old policy?

    Too many people QQ'd because they couldn't name themselves Ghost, and others QQ'd because the name they wanted was taken by someone who hadn't logged on in months.

    This plus the fact that new B.net doesn't care about just your username, it ID's people through character codes + name. So you can have 998 players with username "Ghost" as long as they all have different character codes, which I assume go from 001 to 999.

    Goes higher now, they added 4 digit character codes, a few players on the forum have them.

    Just this noticed: That is an extremely old screenshot because Hongbearr is in the NOTD channel and it has been forever since he has been in the channel.

    Yeah I saw Hongbearr on Sunday night I believe. Samhaine hasn't logged on in a while though. And you missed Reina logging back on, Jercy. This was on that Saturday night when you got on Vent really drunk.

    Interesting. Reina logs in every now and then.
