So do we have to log in with every character name we want saved or just on the account?
Since most of us have more than 5 char slots, does this mean we can only save 5 out of our say 10 GW1 char names?
So headstart and release day.
What, if due circumstances, you cannot log-in during the first week or something?
I read it as logging on once on the account reserves all account names until launch day.
Of course, having such a tiny window is really putting the pressure on ANet to have flawless servers come launch day, since not everyone will preorder (for 1 day) or prepurchase (for 3 days) and get head starts.
I anyway find it a bit short though. I mean, it is not like it is out of the realm of possibility that a lot of people will be away or otherwise unable to log on on the actual launch day. I really think they should give it a week.
I know they want to free up some names for new players, but it'll be annoying if you can't reserve all of your GW1 names. Maybe give us a list to choose from which ones you want to keep and which ones can be freed up...
I was worried something like this would happen when Gaile Gray mentioned that names would only be reserved for a limited time a few months ago, but one day? And launch day too? That just doesn't seem very GW1 player friendly.
Some characters' names from my second account I want, and the one that I really liked who got the 30/50 HoM done, I'd hate to have to buy a second GW2 prior to day one just to save her name.
I knew I'd get the shaft some day for having two accounts once they started selling character slots.

1) Need to login at least once this year in GW1 before release... This is an easy one, especially if you only need to login in your account. Still, logging in with each char you want to reserve is easy. I was afraid that it'd be just for chars that have unlocked HoM or something.
2) Need to make the chars on 3 day headstart or release. That is WAY too short. I am sometimes off for a conference, that means I am unable to play a week at a time. Launch does not always work well, with people struggling with passwords etc. Either way, 1 day is way too short.
