Bah, increase the limit to twenty six. Then people can do the alphabet :)

No no... increase it to 25, so that they start bashing their keyboard when the z doesn't go in. :P

hahaha I guess everyone had an input in crazy names, but this is one of the best quotes I've ever heard:

It's camo.  All black is how I go in Soldat.

Let me guess, your ingame name is xXxXx666lordofthedarkmiseryevildeathvampiresatan6 66xXxXx

I don't think the current limit can be changed too easily. I believe it's 24 because of the packet structure, not entirely sure though.

24 is more than enough. I haven't even seen last names that were more than 24 letters. Any more would just be unnecessary.

15 Should be enough and clan names should use simple [clan Tag]their name. Why even have all these !"#¤%¤&//)/(= ? If you think it looks cool its not. Its just silly imo

No, I was not.

No no... increase it to 25, so that they start bashing their keyboard when the z doesn't go in. :P

Unless I'm mistaken, doesn't it repeat itself when you go over the limit? So you'd end up with zbcdef...etc

I personally believe the current character limit to be too long.
I too vote for making the limit smaller.
15 characters should do the trick.
Should be enough for a fair sized name & clan tag.

Some clans have long names like /|{[>M</e|h\[|>F<|]orce]}|\ -=- I(3|0uffoon .
Something like that, pretty annoying.


A clan tag is supposed to abbreviate, their problem.

Anyways, maybe it is ok, but I could see more people prettying up their names, which looks goofy really, not to mention when you hit F2 and have huge names distracting you.

IMO, i think about fifteen is a good limit.  As Always, which is an average length name, then room for a clan.
