[Petition] Naming our Guardians

We've all made our guardians just how we want them; they're the class we want them, the race we want them, and they have the face we want them to have. It'd be a subtle, yet great customisation option if we could name them. It shouldn't show as a display name though, it should only be visible to others when they inspect your character. EDIT: to support and sign the petition, leave a comment saying: "Name our Guardians"

  • Let us name our Guardians. For reals. Rocking out three Guardians who all presumably use the same name is just silly and doesn't do any justice to the ideology of game content immersion.

  • So now I have to keep my real friends name, their Gamertag, AND keep up with each of their characters names? Keep it how it is now.

  • I like this idea. If you're a PS4 player you have a way around this problem (sort of). Go into your profile settings and change your display name, first and last, to whatever name you'd like to RP as. Sure, only friends and friends of friends can see your display name in place of your gamer tag, but that's good enough for me.

  • Everyone's like oh I won't be able to find my friends. I call BS. I used to play WoW for years and I had no problem finding any of my friends characters. In fact, the ones I played the most with, I had them memorized by heart. And Wow is actually a good example because in your friends list you can see your friends Battle.net username (ps name) and which character they were playing at the time. Name our Gaurdians

    As much as id love this idea and am constantly looking to increase my immersion amongst the games I play, id rather not run into "Bu++wipe" "@$$ City", "pu$$y patrol" "N1GG@ killer", or "T_B@G Mc Titties"...I could go on but my brain hurts... It's taxing enough for sony and microsoft monitoring names as is and Id rather have bungie focusing on increasing the immersion of the game in other respects rather than having to respond to the numerous flags/reports that I would have to do... Lets face it...as many gamers as there are out there having the ability to create a name would just open the floodgates of random ludicrous names... Also when in the tower or multiplayer Id rather not have to search and sift through the stifiling amount of "Johns" and "Bobs" and "Steves" considering people will undoubtedtly have the same name at times... Plus I took plenty of consideration into my gamertag and feel it fits in any game I play...iv grown attached to it so im cool with it...i do understand its hard/costly to constantly try and change or find unique gamertags that are taken already...

      • Could just be how Mass Effect 3 does their multiplayer, you can name your character and leave it at that. It'll only be visible to you and only you.

        The last thing Bungie needs is to strictly monitor names. I've already come across a wonderful array of them like vag_pumper, -blam!-destroyer, vageater, and boner jones. WTF BUNGIE?!

        • Petitions don't work. They just make you sound like an entitled whiner. I agree with being able to name your saved characters, but seriously, leave out the "petition" part.

          • It's probably not going to happen [quote]Why can't we name our Guardians? Will that option be available in the full game or are we stuck with our Gamertags/IDs? The team thought a lot about how best to have players identify themselves in the world. Ultimately, we’ve landed on PSN ID and Xbox LIVE Gamertag, so other people don’t have to manage a third list of identities (real name, platform tag, Destiny character name).[/quote] [url=http://example.com]http://m.ign.com/articles/2014/07/29/bungie-answers-your-destiny-questions-ign-first[/url]

          • I think it should be more like a clan tag. Something short to stand out and be recognized as different without changing the name
