The Guardian should be renamed

Post by YokoZar »

It's really not a defensive structure, it's more of an offensive siege gun. Somehow the word "Guardian" just says all the wrong things.

Its name is not why people use it wrong.

True.

Still, the name "Noob Cannon" might suggest something else.

Or perhaps a change in the tooltip. Currently it's something like "Heavy plasma battery" which implies defense, perhaps "Static long range artillery weapon" would be a better description

Every goddamn player knows it as guardian and the name doesn't need to make sense. Seriously consider making less useless suggestions / idea threads.

Name change is less serious of a suggestion than the tool tip change.

It's useless and newbies will still build it just to try it out. And it looks cool.

They should name it the "way too expensive for what it does" gun.

I think ARM will feel offended by that, being in an epic long war versus core. They would never adopt a CORE name to one of their structures :P
