Deleting Character level 7 = 1 week.

So yeah i made an alt the other day with a name i wanted to use but didnt know what class i wanted to play.
Now i just wanted to delete to use that name and i have to wait a week.

I could understand this at a higher level but really. level 7 ?

Could you please change it to at least level 11.

i guess they do this to make sure people don't delete characters by mistake, and the system is probably designed to be more relavent to the higher lvl chars - but even at lvl 11 or 15 or 20 it's still annoying :p
i'd say that instead of just entering the character name when trying to delete, you should also enter the lvl number so you're completely aware of what you're about to do....then instant delete regardless! if anyone accidentally deletes their high lvl character after that, then too bad for them ;)

ps: i just waited the last week for one of mine to delete so i could reuse the name...definately an annoying system!! :(

But even on the system its on atm, a week is just too long.

It kicks in at lvl 5 yea. It should take a week to delete chars lvl 1-5, so gold spammers couldent delete the chars straight away. Would be easy for Frogster to find and close the accounts if chars couldent be deleted.

A "Are you sure" validation, perhaps a mail where you have to click a link to accept a delete request would be fine imo. ( You cant switch email adress in your account as far as i remember ? But i might be wrong )

Yes, it's ridiculous... Just another bad design decision. Nothing new.

This has been removed from KTERA. They use the usual confirmation method instead.

So, it will almost certainly be removed in future. Unfortunately, that could be many months away.

Nothing big but still annoying.
Change it to a higher level or remove it altogether.

Probably it worth to "wait" for some 20+ level character, but NOT for 5+.

It's only a couple of days to level a toon up to 20, not a big deal.

If they would change it to level 20 and 48 hour wait it would already be much less infuriating.
