Cycle and Legacy Character names shared?

So to use a character name in new cycle we have to delete the Legacy character?

No you don’t. I was able to use names I’ve used last cycle. Try restarting the game?

Also note that while online play is currently unavailable apparently, you can create a bunch of characters, which is I’m guessing what a LOT of people have done/are doing.

when i type the character name it says “Character name is in use” under cycle and i have tried all 6 names i used last cycle that are still under legacy tab.
