Everyone commenting on this post has a valid point. Is there a possibility we can all come to a compromise? I actually reached out to Bungie on twitter the other day regarding the same topic and basically stated that a lot of us play have creative minds and value the ability to change our names when we switch out our different looks/outfits. It is a shame that those who use inappropriate names and abuse the name changer are ruining it for other players(if that’s the case). What if Bungie charges a reasonable fee for a a name change? More money in their pockets and the players are happy. In addition, I’m no computer techs but is there a way where if a player WAS in the process of making an off e I’ve name, can’t they implement some kind of wall/message that says something like “the name you are requesting contains offensive an character(s)” or something along those lines? You know? Just some thoughts. Thanks
Microsoft have something similar regarding name changes, as does Sony, so that wouldn’t be out of the question. And there are also many games that implement a word filter when naming characters that literally stops if it detects problem words in any language. So I’m not sure what the limitations of that getting implemented would be.
