First, this is a question to the developers or anyone who actually knows the answer (like a playtester). If you don't know, please don't reply with opinions. If no developer answers, I will assume the answer is no, which is fine, but I just want to know before I start making a new sig.
I am wondering if we will ever be able to (or if players are now able to) register character names? I had a name I chose for my gorge when I played NS1 and I would like to keep using it. I am asking this question because I would specifically like to use it for the forums, leader boards, create a NS sig again for the forums, etc etc. I know this seems like a trivial question, but when we enter our keys into Steam, does it register a name for us every time we play, or just for "account use/forum use"?
