Hello everyone! Welcome to a new entry. Today, we’ll talk about the new nickname system that will replace the one that’s being used currently in Transformice and Atelier 801, something that has been recently announced by themselves and you can verify by reading this thread.
According to the announcement, Atelier 801 has been considering to change the current nickname system for two reasons: because there are over 87 million accounts created and because Transformice isn’t the main source of accounts anymore since the release of their new game, Dead Maze. This is something that makes the creation of accounts a difficult thing to do for new players.
In order to fix this issue, Atelier 801 will implement a four digits identifier that will be attached to the player’s account. This way, all the new players will be able to choose a nickname even if it’s already being used by another player: if you want to call yourself Cupcake, your full nickname would be something like Cupcake #0123.
New players won’t be able to choose the identifier established when they create an account. However, this identifier will be displayed only in some places: the player profile, the friends list and next to the player’s nickname in a whisper.
What about old players? If you’ve created an account before this change, you’re going to keep its nickname accompanied by a null identifier, e.g. a player called Zen will become Zen #0000. Once the new system is implemented, old players will have the opportunity to change their nicknames once for free, which would allow them to get a new identifier.
But this is not all! There will be some modifications to the account verification and the login system as well. From now on, no one will be able to use the same email to verify several accounts, and there will be two ways to login to the game: using your email or your full nickname (i.e. including the identifier).
This was all, if you’ve got any doubts or questions or if you just want to share your opinion on the new system, don’t forget to leave a comment. Thanks for reading, and take care!
