BAR subforum?

Post by Funkencool » 18 Feb 2014, 02:57

With BAR getting ever more near a beta like stage, and therefor severing its ties with *A and ip disputes, should it get it's own subforum?

I'm not sure what the plan is but somewhere to have official BAR discussion outside of the SVN would be nice for feedback.

I don't have any ideas for names; for the moment we could keep the game name as Balanced Annihilation and start writing Rx.xx for the version instead of Vx.xx (idk if rapid would like this).

BA:R subforum will be increasingly useful though. Also, the BA website is usually out of date, imo at some point we should put up a BA:R one instead.

It would be too confusing to keep the name balanced annihilation in my opinion.

The only idea I have for a name would be to backronym BAR into something more catchy. Big Angry Robots sticks in my mind from the last name thread. It reminds me of something like KKnD (Krush Kill N' Destroy) in a way.

Or you can avoid the backronym and call it something obviously related to game and menacing enough.

Maybe it's time for a new naming thread, but with a poll this time. Any names that get +1 can be added to poll. Should I start one?

Just replace "Annihilation"... Balanced and Reloaded are fine... maybe "Assault" or "Abrogation" or "Arms" or "Armageddon"

Balanced is too self implying, which makes sense for a mod but not a game. Why does the game need to say it's balanced in the title?

Both balanced and reloaded are bad.

Not sure if subforum makes sense yet: So far there is only one real active topic on BA:R. ( http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=30537 )
I suggest if you want to discuss BAR just make thread here and put "BAR" in title. If you want feedback more players will see it here than in a new empty subforum.
Disruptive Annihilation. because it is time for DA.

There's not many topics because there is no subforum.

I really like Big Angry Robots. It's a cute name and is quite accurate.

I don't think "cute" fits the art style or gameplay.

"Total Annihilation" was a great name because it sounded epic but was also slightly tongue-in-cheek; it sounded serious without actually taking itself too seriously. I think BA still fits really well within that theme.

brutal annihilation sounds cool but then it's still BA. Maybe something along the line of Ageless/Endless Brutality?
