OK so I posted an explanation to FC about how bad it was to see old players who had their names "stolen" on the New server and Christa (not related to me) of Consumer service offered a solution. Here it is:

Hey, y’all! Sorry for the frustration over names. Please feel free to visit and submit a ticket specifically for “AO2019 Name Recovery”. We are trying to help with some name recoveries. ... ?u=chrisax

My post was: ... ?u=chrisax
(...) indeed like many old players you should have been entitled to the use of your existing names or at least one.

The issue is that in a highly social game like AO and as old as AO AND where reputations matter a lot (there is no MMO combining those three factors as much as AO does), a well-known and respected name is extremely important.

There is obviously a serious mistake in the event design there. I feel sorry for you and for everyone else, faithful AO players, who will experience the same thing.

Some people already told me that without their long-used name, and ***worse with thei long-used names taken by someone else, they will not play on the new server***.

That's a waste of good people. I don't undertand why it was not possible to reserve at least one name to save honorable names.

And I don't even mention ORGANIZATION NAMES that can be hacked too...

Side note: Athen Paladins on the New server is the real one. :)
