1After reviewing the names in the contest winners list, the game designers became concerned about how "Felix the Charr" would fit into the Guild Wars world. They noted quite a lot of controversy about the name within the player community, and they themselves felt reservations about including that name as an element within the game. Whist they like to have fun, and do include "cultural references" of many kinds, this particular name is just a little outside what the designers felt comfortable including in the game. - Extracted from a statement by Gaile Gray on this talk page. Please note that the person who submitted the name received all prizes, in accordance with the vote of the team. The only difference was that the name will not appear within the game itself.
