For those who aren't aware a key run is the process of creating a tempoary character, getting them to level 10 and then doing the first part of the personal story for a free black lion key, then deleting the character ready to start over. It can be done once a week and resets on Monday.
The reason I'm asking is that the issue of name availability has come up a few times recently, and because I was using my recent tempoary characters as examples of available names it got me thinking that it would be a real shame if the name someone really wanted for one of their characters was taken by a tempoary character and if they'd tried just a day before or after it would be available. Which got me thinking about key runners, probably the most common example of tempoary characters. I suspect most people do key runs on a Monday (just after it resets) or Saturday (first day most people have more free time), so it could be that if you're trying to make a character and you're worried about name availability it would be best to try on a Friday. But I don't know. It could be there is no pattern, or it's entirely different to what I expect, so I thought I'd ask.
It probably won't come to much, but I'm just curious to see if there is a pattern of certain days when it's more common and therefore there are more characters in GW2 than usual.

"You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea
And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams
And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek
It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings"
