@condor BDO family names, are not names that are typically associated with usernames outside of the game. You can have the name be whatever you want. The only argument you have for this, that's potentially solid, is the VAC thing. And that has to do with how Steam worded their ToS in regards to usage of the service. If the ToS is upgraded by a dev/publisher, and you re-sign, then yeah, it would remove responsibility, and liability from the company. At that point, I'd say people should just stop linking all their accounts. At no point should RMT, result in a players personal information, being used to allow for players to harass other players. Two wrongs don't make a right.
At the end of the day, anyone agreeing that it shouldn't fall on the company, in regards to liability, is ok with negligence, and a lack of accountability. Anyone agreeing that it should be ok, to harass other players, based on actions in game, is both childish, and quite frankly screwd in the head. Players aren't always going to separate a game, from someone's personal life. Even if said someone is being the most scummy in regards to how they carry themselves in regards to cheating/RMT,(edit) they shouldn't be harassed. And it should be a companies goal to maintain the anonymity of even banned players. They can track cheaters, and issue bans as needed, but it should never go further than that.
@Gamers-are-so-oppressed This can also be used in response to apart of your comments.
The Uplay thing however, I'll answer directly. It is mid game, and a Uplay account still could have a different username than a Steam account. It's also ignorant of them to post it regardless. Reddit has a lot of bad actors on it. There are rare occurrences of good threads, but for the most part, Reddit is half of the fallout from the mass exodus from Tumblr.
