The Name Game
What's in a name? It sets you apart from the rest of the gaming community, giving your character a sense of identity in a world full of sometimes similar models.
The naming policy isn't put in place to take fun out of your character, but instead to ensure that the gaming experience is pleasant for as many people as possible.
In most cases, a name that is found to be in violation will be changed to something of your choosing. If the offense is on a more serious level, you may face disciplinary measures and you may be assigned a new name without the ability to change it later.
Sony Online Entertainment encourages creativity when creating names, but do keep in mind what is not allowed when choosing what to call your character:
A more thorough version of the official naming policy for SOE games can be found in the Knowledge Base.
What to do if you see a bad name?
Use the /petition command in most SOE games. PlanetSide players can utilize the /appeal function, and those in Star Wars Galaxies can press "H" to open the external browser window.
