Hi there, 

 

I joined last night and I've come to log in this morning and it's asked me for my character name, where would i find/create this? Told you was silly

 

Thanks

walk me through what you did last night/ when you logged on

You create your name the first time you log into the game I'm pretty sure. It comes up with screen where you customise your character and choose a name. So have you done this when you signed up last night? If so I have no idea why it's asking you for a name cause if you don't pick one you just become Viking- 123456789.

Hi    Thank you for coming

Hi 

 

Thank you for coming back to me :). I think I accidently opened two screens at once but it didnt seem to cause any issues and it was working as before till i came to this morning. 

 

If I type anything in the box it says "this name can not be used , or it contains sumbols and numbers . PLease try another name"  vent typed numbers or symbols only letters but its if i typpe anything.

I think the system doesn't allow us to use real names, like for example Amy, John and the likes, to prevent kids using their real life names.

 

I myself tried a bunch of North European names for my viking and got the same message you did.

 

The easiest was to name a viking is to make up a nonexistent name that sounds good or use names with titles like 'Stoick the Vast' for example. Also, you may try to spell a name differently than it should be spelled, like Amee for Amy.

Hope this helps. ^^

Just keep trying till it works- like with creating a username

Got any characters from books or TV whose names you like? Just run through those till  it's not used. I spent ages deciding on a name for myself and ended up with "Ilinga". It's the name of a brumby in the Silver Brumby book series that was said to be from the moon herd or something like that.
