Is it out of the question to use "Annihilation" in the name though? Otherwise I don't care about it, but it would be good for marketing I think, to emphasize the connection to TA which is still the easiest way to quickly tell what the game is like.

I STRONGLY reccommend against using the Annihilation word.

Also I attempted to fix the length issue. There are some things that can be done, some that require newer browsers, some that would truncate, but the best solutions are thwarted by PHPBB and its age. Namely that a paragraph in a forum post uses <br> tags, rather than <p> tags. If we had paragraph tags then we would have text that had a maximum width equal tot he current normal width, that allowed images to expand to the full width, letting us post big images and have a fluid site, without the readability issues or giant sentences other people have argued against.

Well, as I said before, name may be too humoristic considering the artistic style and the concept, so the name could not make justice for the game

But on the other hand, once you look at for example latest screenshots with new models, you can sense a delicate tint of cartoonistic style, and definitely in a positive way. Therefore I feel the name could do.

Are you being ironic? The game definitely isn't very serious, and that's the way I like it. You will realize this as soon as you look the units and their naming. Imo Bob's models represent this feeling very well, trying not to be too cool, but rather smooth and personal.

You attract asian players having 'dynasty' in your game name?

Man, I don't get you...

So serious we defend the concept of the cute little peewee and argue over wether the Core commander is wearing a kilt or a skirt

best way to attract asian players is to make a contract with chinese gov, that you will be protecting their interests under all circumstances, and in return they declare a new sub-sub-half-year-plan that forces 1million chinese to play exactly 1h of spring per day, and 1000 devs to contribute exactly 10 lines of code (changes) per day, each.
second best option is to have a pink kitten in the logo, and it should look sexy, both to females and males at the same time.

I sent so many suggestions, all trashed for "Big angry robots". I also painted some symbols.. :shock:

If you feel it that way, then Big Angry Robots could do it. Someone upthread noted that this thread ranked 4 for this name, which is in any case a good point for it.

Yes, I was half-joking.

As for the dynasty name, it is not my suggestion but someone noted (probably also half-joking) that this name could attract Asian, as there were long dynasties of kings in China I would guess.

A new name suggestion: Mechanized Warfare Dynasty
