Elsword Isn't Name Dropping
Who loves you? The Kill3rCombo crew, that's who. Yes, we're doing a character data wipe BUT (and I'm going to put this next bit in all caps so no one misses it) CBT PLAYERS WILL RETAIN THEIR NAMES!!! Well, most of you anyway. Some wonky names (single letters, obscene words, in-game and NPC names, etc.) will be trashed. Here's the rub though; all character data will be wiped, so don't be surprised when you log into the OBT for the first time to see empty character slots.
The names you used in the CBT are tied to your account and only you can create new characters with those same names. (I better make this next sentence in all caps too) ALL UNCLAIMED NAMES WILL BE DELETED SATURDAY, 00:00 PDT, APRIL 30. So make sure you create your character within those first 3 days of OBT. We'll put this up on the forum so we can field any questions you may have. Please feel free to freak out now.
