(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – World of Warcraft players will soon be able to choose from a pool of old usernames with the upcoming Warlords of Draenor 6.0.2 patch.
“With the upcoming Warlords of Draenor pre-patch, we will be releasing sidelines characters’ names back into the wild,” writes Blizzard via blog post. “Our goal with this great name liberation is to make sure new and returning players have a large and varied pool of names available to choose from.”
Players who have not logged into their accounts since November 12, 2008, will have lost their rights to their user names. However, users who want to keep their characters names will need to log In to each of their characters before the release of the patch.
Warlords of Draenor will launch on November 13th for the PC.
