    Hm.. well there goes the idea of reserving names. =_=
    Lemme see if I got that issue...

    EDIT: I do! Well, guess we can't reserve names anymore for characters.

    (calling 5 hr unscheduled maintenance.
    Also IN.B4 is censored. Ok)

    Aha, here it is: https://orangemushroom.net/2017/07/05/kms-ver-1-2-279-maplestory-nova-cadena-the-chain-of-liberation/#more-29306

    "When you change a character’s name or delete a character, the time before the name is reusable has been changed.

    Characters deleted before July 6 which were in the dormant state or Pink Bean character names will be available for reuse at a random time after the patch.
    Changed/deleted characters’ names will now become available for reuse at a random time after 24 hours have passed."

    It's intended. Time to set your alarms to notify you at the exact time that you released a name.

    I don't watch enough Rick and Morty sooo I have no idea how to fully comprehend this except that they messed with the ability for us to save names.


    I was gonna comment on how salty I am after this but my cat jumped into my lap and I feel better.
    Now for some namestorming..

    I thought I was the only one. I'm missing out on the event because of this. It is so unfair. They do weird things like thing and then wonder why this game is dying... This is another turn off for me. I cannot even control what my ign is anymore.

    I just realized if you have a character over level 30 and want to reuse the name you now have to wait 48 hours.

    Well despite the stupidity that korean devs had shown, KMS is still filled with lots of players unlike GMS or any other regions. I don't even get what is all about global market. You mean having weird **** samurai contents? or adopting many other cultural regions? I always thought these are quite bullshit, never ever seen anyone fooling around on these things. I play GMS solely because KMS requires Korean mobile number and SSN which obviously I don't have. I am not saying all non-KMS contents are bad but I can say yes to most of them.

    Lmao I set the alarm for the exact time and it's now 10 minutes later. Still can't use it. I also just realised that it's a RANDOM TIME after 24 hours so idk even when I can do it ;-;

    Unfortunately, it is ridiculously vague when the IGN will be released. I just hope this is all resolved while the Breakthrough event is still active.

    I may just resort to making a random Cadena and then using the name change coupon from the Nova coin shop. More convenient.

    Us users shouldn't have to resort to such problems. It is rather unfortunate. The event is only available until the 13th of December. If it releases after the event, you might have to pay 15k NX. It is not guaranteed your IGN will be released then.
