What about the in game mail, I'm hearing reports of it disappearing after linking accounts, any word on if this is intended?

if our fourm name is different from our in game @handle will our in game name now change? as you see my name is all lower case in fourms and used to be all uppers. my in game @handle is all uppers. would hope that stays the same. also would it be possible for my fourm name to beccome all uppers as well?

I am dissappointed with that FAQ. It states that account names were reserved, and yet I found myself having to make a new account and forum used name. :frown: The form had filled itself out with my old data, which was promptly in red to say it was taken.

This should not be occurring. I'll forward the concern to the team.

We added this to the FAQ that is linked:

What about my @handle? Is it gone?

Nope. Your @handle is integral to your Cryptic account, and will always be what you use in-game. Think of it this way: instead of two names, now you have three: Account name, @handle, and forum name. Your @handle and forum name CAN be the same, but will not be automatically. Changing your forum name does NOT change your @handle, or vice versa.

Cheers,

Why wasn't this released in advance of the changes and why wasn't the community told these changes would occur?

Not that I am bothered to much by the changes, I just think this could have been better handled.

So uh... do we still have Cryptic accounts? Why does that response specifically mention Cryptic Accounts if we all have PW accounts now?

I linked them it seems, but I dont see the prize....

genhauk 06-20-2012 12:46 PM

One big problem ... My @handle was considered to have "illegal" characters in it.

And even though my characters in game are still labeled with my old @handle (@P-A-T-H-F-I-N-D-E-R) .... my forum handle is genhauk.

What does this mean ... I cannot buy C-points nor Zen nor tie existing characters to my "Core" page.

In fact, I'm told that I have zero characters on the Core page and thus cannot buy Zen until I have at least one character at level 10.

News flash ... I've got 18 characters in game.
