I'm guessing one of them is using capital i while the other is using lower case L.

I still have it on my history of my battles.  They are letter for letter the same.  No difference at all.  I am not trying to call someone out for cheating, I am trying to figure out how this was done and why the system was allowing it....  the system concerns me more than anything. 

I apologize if this is seen as calling someone out.  Not my intention actually not sure how WG allows this...

Yea, it's surprising how common that is. It's also really annoying for searching stats >:I

so  you can have the same name appearance in game?  I see the slight difference in the accounts but in my battle results there is no difference at all....

Only reason I even noticed it at all was going to compliment someone in the opponents side for their play. No big deal just seemed very concerning if someone could have played 2 ships at once and one of them being a tier 10 carrier.  Person is a ranked one player with great talent...

Yes, but are they the same person nonetheless? What are the chances?

Lol I don't think such player exists. It is just our intension to make them look like the same. Tbh cap i will look "shorter" then lower L, and it is just hard to see the difference in game.

Well, mystery solved!

On the subject of ships in-game with the same name, let's all see the confusion and unoriginality that is ship naming!

St. Louis: Am I talking about the Protected Cruiser (tier 3 USN), Light Cruiser (soon to be tier 7 USN, Helena), or Heavy Cruiser (tier 9 French)?
New Orleans: Am I talking about the Protected Cruiser (tier 2, Albany), or Heavy Cruiser (current tier 8, soon to be tier 7)?
Type 1934 destroyer: Am I talking about the Gaede (tier 6), or the Maass (tier 7)?
Type 1936A destroyer: Am I talking about the new Z-39 (tier 7), or the Z-23 (tier 8)?
Konigsberg-class light cruiser: Am I talking about the 1915 class (tier 4 Karlsruhe), or the 1927 (tier 5)?
Are we talking about a Lyon (tier 7 French), or a Lion (tier 9 British)?
Is it Dunkirk the battle, the Captain(s), or the ship (Dunkerque)?
And which South Dakota are we wanting more: The never made 1920s concept, or the lead ship of the class which Alabama and Massachusetts belong to?

I'm sure there's more I'm missing, but yeah, you get the idea.

Pretty high I would guess considering this. lol

When I scoped out some those especially number 6, the Co-Op was the primary focus and very little Random's played. Another one was the same, but they had either bought or won a Graf Spree. /shrug

I guess people take this rerolling thing serious.

Though admittedly I rerolled once.... Yup.... I started a second account.... On the EU server back when I was in my first clan and that was only because we had members over there... So my stats were obviously higher there than here because I had already learned the "growing pains" so to speak. However, I didn't buy any premiums, lol.
