Bad idea, with this people will make it confusing for new people not knowing which is what.
If there is a 2nd 32nd, for example, they will only try to steal our new members and "ride on our shoulders". Its the only reason someone would make a copycat regiment or they will try to ruin the name of the regiment.

This shouldnt be a discussion, its the internet and people will only use this to troll so no point in allowing it. Its not difficult to find another name, there are thousands of numbers you can use, find anotherone of your liking.
Edit: for example if you really want to use 32nd be french and use 32e or if there are austrians/prussians/russians use their equivalents. Choices are almost endless.

What people can't choose from thousands of other regiments? Multiple of the same regiment is just plain dumb.

100% agree, make your own legacy with a regiment don't hang on the cost tails of others. Don't get butt blasted when people tell you the truth.

 So i think some people know the problem with my 84e and the other 84e "Vader". How should that be resolved? We already tried to find a solution with a friendly talk. No one wanted to change was the result, we agreed on being peaceful.

We exist since 2010 and own domains and several other stuff that is related to 84e, to change all that would be sad and a lot of work. But the other exist over 1 year as well and i understand that they wont change by their own as well. The one year they exist, they used the name in NW without asking and we never disbanded either .

I believe two regiments with the same name will cause a lot of problems. This wont be solved without the help of moderators. The same situation happened in NW and they added claim rights for MM regiments.

I know Vader personally on the NA side, we're not that close but I could try and persuade him to change the name because the 84e was always an EU "Legacy Regiment", meaning that noone should have ever tried copying your name and bringing down the reputation and prestige you guys worked for over the years. If I discuss it with him, I can probably talk him into choosing another regiment name and making his own legacy with that name.

I would support him aswell with everything i can offer. Media and such, but as i sayed we had already a chat in teamspeak about this, so he knows.

Thank you!

No there are many other Reg names someone can pick from.

I wish there was a like button cause this was funny as fuck.

Also i think if you pick the name then you should hold the name, but not for those shitty regiments with 10 men.

In the end it doesnt matter cause the Big regiments who have the big names will just bully the hell out of the small regiments until they give up the name. (not agreeing with the idea just accepting it)

It makes sense to me to have a reasonable base of players to "claim" a regiment.

At least put in an effort to have some sort of organised group as opposed to someone jumping in claiming a number with best intentions however never act on it.

Proof should be provided of a player base to guarantee activity of the regimental number.

But again at the end of the day it is only a number.
