Seriously, every single one I've encountered. I understand that there are technical issues with changing pet names but how is it going to look when every single player either has a Pioneer Dragon or a card giving pet called Baby Abby? We need to atleast have the chance to choose the name when we first equip the pet.
I've only seen in twice, but I agree once it is a DROPPED pet, then we should change the name. Or they should make a new shop in the bazaar/shopping districts for a "Name changer" to change your pets name.
As someone in another thread pointed out, this is clearly a bug as 'Baby' and 'Abbey' are the first two names in the names column. This bug has been around since the beta and it's a bit sad that it still hasn't been fixed.
Ideally players should be able to name all pets including dropped ones -- it's more fun, and after all, if get a pet from your local animal shelter, don't you rename it? Especially if it's named something awful like Fluffy or Mittens or Jeff? (My apologies to anyone with a pet named Fluffy or Mittens or Jeff.)
As already stated, at the very *least*, the name should be random and it boggles my mind why this bug has remained for so long. Just adding my voice to the crowd.
HEY! I had a cat named Jeff! He was the most loving, caring, and mentally off kilter cat I ever had!
And as for the "Baby Abby"...I agree. There should be a way to change that name. My wife has two dropped pets and we have named them on our own but it's no fun when you cannot share it with everyone outside our computer room.
Even if it is, say, a treasure card. They are one time use and can be purchased from any dealer except....here's the kicker folks, it would not be cheap and not tradeable. SO you would have to earn it yourself. If you make it tradeable then some kind of restriction would be needed. Cannot have the in-game economy go wonky over constant name changes.
1. Is name change for a pet possible?
2. If so:
a. Could a buyable treasure card be an answer?
b. I think using gold instead of crowns would be the best option IMHO.
c. Tradeable or no? Meaning buy it for a friend or, in some cases, a real-life relative?
d. What kind of restrictions would be necessary to avoid abuse?
e. Should there be a level restriction?
If this is possible there is one thing I would ask be done, make sure non-subscribers can use them. It is possible for them to get a dropped pet so why not a name change too? (If I am mistaken about this part then, oops! :-) )
