In an effort to provide a smoother transition to/from HI2 we have setup
a system to allow players whose names will NOT pass the HI2 filter to
change their HI1 name. This way you can use the same name across the
This will help you recognize existing friends on HI2 and protect the
name you want from being taken on HI2 by someone else. Choose your name
carefully! Only one name change for those that need it. This will change your current, HI1 name.
We added many 'safe' parts of existing playernames to the dictionary,
so many of you will find that your name is fine as is even though it
may not be a standard dictionary word.
Also, note previous news yesterday announced 6 new quests.
