Hi all you lovely name grabbers!

We will be making a change to the name release process today, introducing a requirement of total skill level of 250 for either RuneScape or OldSchool to be able to claim a name.

The release of the letter B names today will be between 14:30 and 15:30 UTC.

Total level requirement shouldn't have been added in my opinion. All members should have the same name changing priorities because total level doesn't correlate with who deserves a name more. Ultimately nothing really changes because once someone with 250+ total takes a name, it can go to any other account under that total level, rendering the total requirement useless lol.

There isn't really a good reason as to why fresh accounts can't have new names.

If someone really wanted a name, 250 total is an easy target to get too. The point is, this is stopping bots from just creating 20 accounts and sniping all the best names before legitimate players have a chance.

If i had it my way, i would make the minimum level requirement 500 with at least 1 quest completed.

People assume that all fresh accounts or any account with 35 skill total is a bot or illegitimate player, when that's being quick to judge. I don't see a reason to limit a 35 skill total account that's been around for the same amount of years as an account with 2k+ total. As long as they're a member, there shouldn't be any priority given. As i've said though, it's somewhat a waste of their time adding a level requirement when all that's needed is for an account to have taken the name once. At that point, anyone can get the name. Essentially all this level requirement does is stalls for about 5-10 seconds lol. Nothing really changes fortunately.
