@Jens Erik - Main CM hello! Any good news about ‘Bad player name’ issue?

Looks like we found the reason for the “BadPlayerName” bug, and it’s thanks to BattlEye that we were able to figure it out. BE blocks players from entering a server when they have certain characters in their character name that we don’t allow. That includes just having a blank space as a character name.
We recently changed some blueprints that affected how a player repossesses their character and how the game checks for that. What ended up happening was that the game and server will start loading up your character, but doesn’t assign a name to them. BattlEye then checks said character, sees a blank space, and kicks the player. We should have a fix for this very soon
I was just about to hit send when you asked

I can play about 2 days with my name. And have got this issue when killed while offline
Erik… you have feed back from players with this issue in your new forum. Check it. Test it! BEFORE post this bul$hit (-
Folks who have this issue, i need your help. In my opinion Funcom does not understand the problem right.
It’s a bug, so not your fault. There’s no need to change your character name.
It happens if you log in to the server and there is no character already spawned in for you, meaning someone killed your unconscious body.
It is fixed internally, and should be in the next testlive update.
