I knew it'd happen anyway but they have confirmed character name changing service in the coming weeks to EUR realms
I can get my original name back!
I can confirm that the paid name change (Should we call it PNC? :P) is due to be rolled out for European realms Soon™. I do not want to go into great detail with regards to the restrictions in place for this service just yet, but FAQs will be made available at an appropriate time.
