Customizable Nation IDs

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this will be a game-breaking update or not, but as I see, only around 4,000 or the 200,000+ ids are held by active individuals. A total of 196,000+ ids are out there with no nations on them. 
The suggestion is: Let players buy custom nation ids for a credit or two. Players will only be able to change their ID once for a payment of x credits. Players can only chose from IDs that currently have no nation on them. 
I'm pretty sure there will be a number of people who want specific IDs(I want 69420 for my ID). This will increase credit usage a bit.

Considering there's pretty much no possible numbers that can be chosen that aren't somehow either sexual references, drug references, neonazi dogwhistles etc. I really can't see the point of this one. (The fact that there are no possible numbers in the full set of infinity that aren't sexual/drug/nazi only adds to that)

If nation IDs could include letters, then there'd be some validity to the idea, but otherwise is there even a single number that you can think of that would actually be worth picking and isn't sex/drug/nazi/etc?

I, for one, would love to see this idea implemented. When I rerolled, I made a new account,  and it therefore had a different nation ID. I'd love to get my old 103629 ID back. :(

Well ,i think customizable ID's is a nice thing for VIP users like allowing them to make their own id's using a particular set of digits chosen by the user etc. which distinguishes them from normal users like currently i totally don't like my ID it's just tangled and i am 100% sure that's the case with most people too who want customizable id's according to their taste also ,game has many cosmetic features so adding this one will make it more cool plus this will help the people into buying the credits which will increase their demand on the market.

This is stupid. Nation id is the only unique identifier, it can't be changed without a lot of things breaking.

You already can change nation name and leader, which are the things being displayed on pages, so I don't see the point of this.

A few numbers can be blocked off

There is also UIDs there. Plus you only get one chance to change it. 

You pay say 2 credits and are able to change it only once. If you want to change it again, you cannot

The network UIDs are not persistent, nor unique per nation, they are based on your current ip address.

People like myself care more about the semantics of the ID, than what the actual number is. It shows how long you've been playing, even for people like myself that have rerolled several times and kept the same ID through it all.

However, if you allow people to manipulate their ID like this, it takes away that value.

Sounds just like customising a car number plate, spending on something that makes you look 'cool', well at least to you cool.

It'd be a nice credit sink.
