I don't understand how someone decided to turn a Z into an 0.

It's just explaining what "0" is for those of us who don't do maths. At all.

FYI, if you're going for scientific accuracy, it's 0K, not 0k. Kelvin is capitalized.

I know I know!

When picking names, there are a small but immensely popular collection of words that normally come to mind:

e.g. Turbo, Nitro, sub zero, Hyper, big numbers like 2000 or 3000, master, pro, Mega, Greek Gods, knights and paladins, Ice, Fire, etc

This hundred or so number of words is dwarfed by the number of names that use them. As a result I doubt anybody will ever take Nitro as a serious name for a product unless its related to actual nitrogen.

As such, the 0k moniker is kind of doomed. I would say even changing it to zero K would be better, or even zero kills or 0 Kills.

Right now when I think of 0k and here the word said in my mind I thin of coke zero, weight watchers food, 25% less fat, Zero antenna reduction claims from Apple competitors, Zero added sugar

All my points still apply. I suggest you start a poll and survey people on the streets or on completely unrelated discussion boards, and ask them

"We have something called Zero-K, what is it?"

Multiple Choice, and I expect the consensus will be some kind of soft drink, cosmetic, or food item, not a game, and if so, an fps not an rts

This discussion has been had numerous times elsewhere, and unless you provide a distinctly better alternative supported with all the necessary marketing media you're unlikely to force a change. This topic is about the logo, not the name decision. Please discuss the logo.

Its not an acronym. Although technically the correct way to write it would be '0 K'.

i still love the quantum's idea: "ecce maccina"
with its pureness, it would fit well to a TA-IP free thing. plus it would be different, as it's name is philosophical, instead of action/destruction/war inspired.
... problem would just be, that its still basically the same thing. ;-)

Ecce Machina was my idea, not Quantum's. It was passed over because, if I recall, Falco had a track of the same name at some point.
