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.


I don't understand how this can be enforced, say someone makes a new account, will the name show as unavailable/already taken?

I cannot see how this makes sense without a list of names being released. Anyone else..?

Good fix to the name sniping issue - I'd have ramped it up to 300 Total Level but my faith is with Jagex, thankfully they're tracking people who may have intentions of RWT'ing these names since the releases.


Hmm if tracking name releases it may clarify what i was wondering but still wouldn't make full sense to my questions above. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

What does them releasing a list of names have to do with them adding a req for them?...

Just deal with the fact no list is being released and stop asking:@

I agree with the change, personally.

I sniped the name Bastet on an account once, but then for some reason I completely forgot it existed. It wasn't until recently that I saw an email for the account that I noticed.

Glad someone got the name who wanted it tho.

I do see some concerns over the name thing, but does this mean you're assigned a random name until you hit 250, then you're offered a name change?

When the name are released, can you change your name immediately after broadcast or do you have to relog first? anyone knows?
Yes you can change you're name second you see the broadcast given the one you're after is a fresh release.. No logging required.. Gl :)
