New League Name

Post by Moto Unit » Wed Feb 25, 2015 12:10 am

One last comment I would like to add is on the new league name....I think League of Nations....after all isnt this what comprises all of BZFlag but many peoples of many nations world wide?:) Thanks again Kierra and all the other admins and contributors to this game I love so much. You deserve so much thanks and gratitude and a whole lot less grief:) Moto

I think it would be nice to have players polled for naming the league:
We can have a list of suggestions and a blank to fill in as well. Open to more suggestions here as well.
  1. League of Nations
  2. One League
  3. BZFlag League
  4. OpenLeague :wink:
  5. The United League

"Games United" happens to be an excellent name for the one league to rule them all.

I'm sure the ducati players will jump right on that. :P

Personally I favor something generic like "BZFlag League" to represent how the league is meant to be comprehensive enough that it is the only one that needs to exist.

I concur the new name should be broad and inclusive, using a name too similar to one already in place, like Open or GU, is a bad start. I support "BZFlag League".

You could always call it the International League of Tanks, or iLeague.

I personally don't like the "BZFlag League" name since it seems to imply that the league is some official service, and may also conflict with later league hosting services that the project may run.

If you mean if I can elaborate, there's really not much more than a rough long term goal of offering more official services such as more "social" functions (blogs, forums, team pages, and league hosting). The league hosting would probably have some fee, but would maybe include match servers hosted by the project.

While BZFlag League certainly describes what we're trying to do here......For me, it's so generic that it lacks personality or "color". I was hoping for something that really catches attention.

Like sn0w_m0nkey & qd, I see the value of staying away from anything remotely similar to ones already in place.
By the same token, I think the league players should determine by vote, what the new league should be called.
Either we provide a list from which they vote, or have a period of time for submissions from players of possible names and then a vote.

I agree the league should be named by all league members. should we have a time period for submissions or provide a list.

MultiLeague (If other maps are included other than duc and hix). Simple.

Thought you would have gone for
Damn sexy league ;)

Blast are saying your adverse to using the "BZ Flag" within the name?
Pro League ?, sounds like someone is getting paid, may also be a turn off for the novice

Some further name suggestions
BZ Flag Challenge League - have that iconic logo ' We want You' following in the header.

Thought about the name
BZ Flag Tank Team League or BZ Flag Team League, but then some players just don't like the idea of playing in a team. But at least with the name 'challenge' we get them to look in at the maps.
