Hello,

The new toon I bought has a strange accent in it that I really dislike.

The toon is Mr'Ganch.

I would like to petition to change it to Mr Ganch (looks more normal that way).

I mean, the name isn't incredible anyway but I know there's no changes outside of minor stuff like this.

Thank you for any answers.

EDIT: Wow no question there is there. Let me attempt to type something that makes sense: Would CCP allow this? Does anyone have experience regarding this?

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

Sh*t, the question was do you could think CCP would allow it? Any ISD etc could answer.

And the answer repeatedly given... No. They will not change the name on the account. Period, end of discussion, full stop. No.

Names changes are not allowed. This information is highly available and well known.

They won't change names, but they will fix them.

If you bought the character from some lazy ass that couldn't be bothered to capitalize the names, you can petition for a fix. But anything that actually involves changing words (that includes removing strange accents) is a no go.

I would suggest your old toon should change name too BroodAlpha -> BloodAlpha.

In my experience it's unlikely you'll get a name change approved. However, never say never until someone officially denies you.

Please make a Support Ticket with your request and you should receive a response in due course.
