Forewarning - Minecraft Name Changes

Be careful when you change your name. Here's a few tidbits, we've largely have prepared for name changes but seeing initial issues after the first few hours.

Checklist
  • LWC permission issues. (you'll need a friend to help you with this)
  • Heroes works without issue and will transfer your level
  • Class titles will not show up (purchased/crate titles are fine)
  • Townships will need to re-invite you - leaders avoid changing your name until we release a hotfix.
  • Money may be an issue (though will have to check with @greatman321)
  • Staff Impersonating will result in a ban, don't do it.
  • Clan issues, you will need to be reinvited.
But Kainzo, you had months to prepare!
Correct, however, a lot of these "were" fixed for the UUID system but they still broke, we're having to patch each manually. Thanks for being understanding!

Enjoy the new naming system - understand that staff is unable to assist with most name related issues, it will require code changes to fully function.

If simply changing capitalization in a name, will anything be affected (town membership, LWC, etc.)?

It appears that Townships retain the old name as a member, so if the new name is added, the player will be counted as twice for town membership - a way of stacking membership to meet requirements.

Any way this can be fixed, please?

Not really, no. Townships bases memberships on the name, not UUID. The only option is to PE it and have an admin remove the name or ask the mayor to.

The player doesn't have to be online to remove them from the SR @WitchOnaRampage, so if the mayor is available they only need to execute the command. Also applies to sub-regions.
