The thing is, it’s not that easy...all those names are tied to characters that have been played for some extent of time (regardless of how long that is).
While this would be awesome for current players, it wouldn’t be fair to any old players possibly coming back to the game in the future. There are always some old players trickling back after a couple years, and they wouldn’t be happy about finding their characters with newly randomized names. Even if the characters never got past level 10, there’s still a very tiny chance they could come back.
People who have been gone for 5+ years prob won't come back lol js
Ironic you should mention that, as just last night I replied to a post from a guy who came back from about 5 years ago (link to topic).
I do agree that the chances are pretty small, but there is still a chance nonetheless...and it wouldn't be right to alter characters without player approval.
