Arm ---> Boxxy Lovers
Core ---> Boxxy Haters

The current names are just random words. You're just used to them. The names aren't even important, dunno why you're all crying.

You've got it the wrong way round. The colour of their buildpics say that arm is good and core is evil. (hasn't wc1&2 taught you anything?)
But... Dune 1? In Dune 1, the Atreides are red, the Harkonnen are blue.
By the way Atreides were blue and Harkonnen were red: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dune2_houses.png

All is right in the world.

I'll assume the purpose of BAR unit renaming is to muddle up copyright issues.

The FatBoy is not a Cavedog unit.

Krogoth > Balrog
Aren't these two copyrighted names?

Wrong! You can use:
- Common word (so used they don't belong to anyone in particular)
- Made-up words (never used so free to grab)

If you name something "Balrog", then Tolkien's heirs can sue you. But if you name it "Demon" or "Cimfoc" no one can sue you.

@ zwzsg

I honestly think a game could have a good TA/CA-ish feel to the names if they had one simple requirement: every unit that wasn't a pants-crapping terror mega unit should be named after food. Peewees become Kiwis. Cans become Poundcakes.

Mega-units must be named after synonyms for "Destroyer". Mauler, Obliterator, etc.

CA's names are TA-ish. TA has silly names. CA has silly names. Peewee, Morty, Rocko, The Can (not just Can, but The Can), Sumo, etc. Those are silly names, and CA carries that naming convention through (where they don't name units after CA devs). I could perfectly believe the Marshmallow being a TA unit.
