  • Couldn't get my normal in game name?!?!?!

    So I landed a beta key yesterday, and started up the game last night. Tried to create my soldier name and struck out with every single attempt, getting one of two different messages. It either told me that creating the name failed, and reminded me to use standard characters (A-Z) (a-z) or (0-9), which I was doing already, and once it told me the name was already in use. The names I tried were:

    BigMcLarge
    BigMcLargeHuge
    BigMcLarge23 (<-I think this is the only one it told me was already in use)
    BigMcLarge111
    BigMc111
    BigMac

    So I ended up falling back on an old real life nickname, Squeaky, to get in game.

    Any ideas as to why I couldn't get any of these to work?

        Maybe some kind of filter to prevent phallic jokes? I'm not sure, but I would try again if it was not working.

        My friends call me Y. My enemies call me... well, that's a secret.

          It's actually a filter setup to avoid copyright infringement with the McDonald's corporation. EA is currently in talks with various companies for in-game advertising for BC2 just like we saw in 2142. Until these negotiations are hashed out these filters were put into place to avoid any complications that may arise.

          Couple that with the fact that the above statement is a completely made up crock of horsesh*t, I'd say you've got quite a sticky situation on your hands eh Twiggy?
