Well I have Everfrost under the name of all my guys now. Seems weird. It will take some time to adjust to that. All the names that mattered are good to go with no X's.   Yipee!

We're looking into the issue with names having double xx's on the end.  We did have a problem early in the merge procedure with the rename script but it should have been fixed.  Apparently it wasn't, so we are checking into it now.

I watching while walking on egg shells for this one.  My ranger Sylant is now Sylantxx and has 8 hours more play time than my blackburrow counterpart.  also higher by 2 levels, and seems they haven't leveled since 2009

My Midnyte on everfrost has two xx's after her name and she is lvl80, guilded with more play time than the blackburrow counterpart whom hasn't leveled since 2006 and is an unguilded lvl 42. I will be petitioning...

I too have the xx after some of my toons names.  I'm going from Blackburrow to Everfrost.

                                       

My Menace 54 days played vs. EF Menace  6 days played

My Sydd  23 days played vs. EF Sydd 7 hrs played

My Franz 1 days played vs. EF Franz 4 days played...but it appears this one hasn't been on since 2005.  This is my only wildcard.

Something is very wrong imo.

Update:

We've been looking into the naming complaints and here is what we've found.  Apparently the merge FAQ says that we were going by played time, but our actual merge scripts used creation time.  In the past we've always gone by creation time for determining who keeps the name which is why the scripts work this way.

So we're trying to create a list of people who would have been affected by this change so we can make CS aware of it.  Most likely we will bring the servers up in the current state and ask players to petition if they feel that the name resolution was incorrect for them.  For many players, the names will be correct, but some of you might be in a situation where you have more played time but were created after the other player.

We'll post a more official statement about this issue later, I just wanted to fill you in on what you were seeing and why it occurred.

It does seem the name merging procedure may not be working as planned.  I have a Zaria on BB with 80 days played.  She has xx after her name.  There is not a Zaria on EF but a Zariaa with two a's at the end.  That toon only has 1 day played.  I also have a Carlee on BB with 3 days showing up with xx's when the Carlee on EF only has 14 hours. 

I am not complaining in any way.  I just wanted to provide this info in case it may help to find/resolve the problem.

Thanks for keeping us updated on the progess!

**Edit** Thanks for the post on the problem Rothgar.

I'm cool with that Rothgar!  Thank you for posting this.  I'm one of the few that wouldn't really have minded changing my toons name either, but either way is good.  Thanks again

Ouch. It was supposed to be first checking (a) played in the past 60 days and if both had then (b) total amount of /played time. I feel really bad for CS... I have 2 chars affected by this now, originally Tenye and Feawen from Blackburrow, their Everfrost counterparts have been inactive since about 2008.

edit: others are posting comparison play times etc for naming issues and I didn't want to make a new post, so here's mine:

My char: Tenye from Blackburrow (now Tenyexx): /played 15 Hours 12 Minutes, level 22, last logged in on 12/7/2010... lost her name to: Tenye from Everfrost: /played 7 Days 1 Hours 32 Minutes, level 24, last leveled on 3/10/2008

My char: Feawen from Blackburrow (now Feawenxx): /played 15 Hours 19 Minutes, level 24, last logged in on 12/7/2010 ...lost her name to: Feawen from Everfrost: /played 40 Minutes, level 4, last leveled on 6/22/2008

Oh swell SMILEY

I just went from having no impending name change issues to having possibly 4 of them. 

Please tell me you guys are going to honor your official policy that you posted over a month ago and change the script to work properly for the subsequent mergers?!!!  I do not relish the thought of having to submit multiple petitions trying to straighten this stuff out after our merge gets done.

Thank you for posting the character name.  I looked into your situation and there was indeed a "Zaria" on EF.  This player had an earlier creation date and therefore got the name.  However, I did confirm that you had more played time and should have received the name according to the FAQ.

Is it possible that the character screens are wrong?  Help !!!!

Edit: I have over 100 days played, not hours.  I'm so upset I misspoke

Alletris, what is the second character that got XX's where you said that another character didn't exist with that name.

My mistake, after double checking, they exist but have 0 days played.

I have 9 characters showing XX total. On this account, I knew I would be losing Cinnamon, so it's legit that she is showing Cinnamonxx now. However, here are the others that should not have XX, but do. Here's each character, my time played and the Blackburrow char's time played:

  •   Tigress - Mine (EF)= 82 days, 3 hours, 38 min.    BB= 0 days, 19 hours, 26 min.
  •   Dian - Mine (EF)= 25 days, 13 hours, 13 min.    BB= 19 days, 2 hours, 7 min.
  •   Larson - Mine (EF)= 4 days, 8 hours, 24 min.    BB= 0 days, 5 hours, 24 min.
  •   Roth - Mine (EF)= 8 days, 6 hours, 35 min.    BB= 6 days, 23 hours, 49 min.

And on my other accounts, it's happened too:

  •   Half - Mine (EF)= 5 days, 21 hours, 27 min.   BB= 0 days, 23 hours, 10 min.
  •   Faefly - Mine (EF)= 3 days, 14 hours, 59 min.    BB= 0 days, 16 hours, 10 min.
  •   Senna - Mine (EF)= 12 days, 5 hours, 11 min.    BB= 0 days, 5 hours, 37 min.
  •   Tsuga - Mine (EF)= 11 days, 13 hours, 44 min.    BB= 11 days, 4 hours, 35 min.

That last one is close, but the others really aren't. And a lot of these on BB are very low level characters who don't appear to have been active in years. I know level doesn't figure into who keeps a name, but we were told time played would, and all these characters of mine are active and with more time... most a lot more. I don't understand what has gone wrong here. We were so careful to check, our accounts have never been inactive or anything, and I was just sure that based on the criteria that we wouldn't be losing them, especially Tigress who is lvl 90/90 and has been around and active for a long time.

FWIW, out of nine characters moved, only one with XX at the end, and as it is primarily a crafting alt, it doesn't bother me.

I have 2 characters I would like you to check if you would. I was on Blackburrow. Wyckyd has the xxs but I can't see the other Wyckyd's play time. And then I think my Vexxa was made before the other Vexxa but she probably has more play time but I can't tell if she has logged in in the last 60 days.

I'm not sure the creation date is working to determine the name owner either.  My character Emprezz on BB was created in 2007 with 36 days played and the EF one was created in 2009 with 33 days played.   So either method should have my character keeping her name, but she is showing with the XX.

My Main Loxus 90 Pally with 187 days played got beat out by a lvl 30 inquis with 9 days played who hasn't leveled since Jan 9th 2005.  To be fair however, the BB player has 11 months on me on toon creation, only because I was deployed to iraq during release.

hey...  i'm real

the other tigress on BB has a total of 19 hrs, 26 min played.  last level was nov 23, 2004.

http://everquest2.com/Blackburrow/Tigress/

you, i cannot check bc its private; however, you cannot get to level 90 without at least 6 days bc my level 30s have over 6 days played so you should get the name. 

if they dont fix it, i bet that you can send in a petition.
