A Server Name
« on: July 07, 2015, 02:59:43 AM »
I know this server doesn't need a functional name, at least not until there are others to choose from.
But we should give the server a name.

Even though the NCSoft servers were fantastic, they were, after all, only servers. They 'served'.
They served their purpose:
To forge a community greater than the game that they served.
To prepare that community for what would need to be done.
To empower that community to overcome a global sunset until the day the heroes and villains breathed new life into the game that had given new life to them for so long.
On the server they built for their game that they loved; The server that had been the game's destiny since it's earliest days in beta testing...

"... Destiny server?"
"... Titan One server?"
"... AP34 server?"

If you give it a name, you give it power.
We should give the server a name.



Me thinks.

EDIT:
 My bad. There is one already. Still, there are some good ideas floating around out there.
The server name is Paragon. It doesn't show on the character selection screen, but it shows in the Global Friends list.

Servers often have the name of a virtuious or patriotic archetype such as freedom, justice, protector, guardian or virtue.

so in that theme i will go really cheesy and give it the most overused name in genreshows for the new child or ship ect...

"Hope"

or something to reflect all the people waiting around for this.

"Patience", "Faith", "Vigilance"

Bob... because I like Titan AE (and the Titan reference... and the circle is complete LOL)

There's a lot of good names- quite a few have already been mentioned. I agree it should be one word, in keeping with the previous ones, while reflecting what is, and may one day be.

Out of the ones I've seen

Legacy (my favorite, but that's because it's tied to the SG I've been a part of 'forever'- even past the going dark, we call ourselves that in every game we play...)
United (to represent what we can achieve if we are)
Reborn (is good-thematically)
AP33 (for obvious reasons)
Sunrise (because it was the first suggestion that totally rocked!)
Titan (because it makes sense, and honors its roots)
Hope (because, too true!)
Destiny (because we still believe...)
Faith (because.. we still believe...) :)

I agree that names have power, that's why I don't like
Afterlife (we're still here, damnit!)
Redemption (we have nothing to redeem)
Joke names (it deserves better)

Heh... I'm still awake and keep pulling up Icon waiting for the update... :) I know they said tonight, but still, just in case, right?

I like Hope, but then it brings back bad memories of the Man of Steel movie and blech.
I think the official name is Titan.

Or we could just call it PancakeYouNCSoft

I never liked the idea of "sunsetting" a game. Thought this was a giant middle finger to that whole idea.

There should be two obvious answers.

Titan, for The Titan Network, who got this rolling.  Downside is though that this is a bit close to City of Titans name wise.

And Paragon, since this is Paragon Chat, and of course because it involves Paragon City.

...All though Bob is cool too.

So, for a moment ignoring the fact we know what it will actually be...

"Insurgent".

Check the etymology, it fits damn well.
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

I love the idea of 'Sunrise'. Really suits what it all stands for, and has the same triumphant feel as the old server names.

One of them that Lycantropus said caught my attention. United. I personally like "Unity" because it sounds/looks more like the traditional servers.

If so many players didn't love the game, didn't fight together to get it back, then we wouldn't have Paragon Chat. Paragon Chat is bringing the community back together and slowly but surely we will see more and more players building up in one place. This server is the first of Paragon Chat and will be the place we first all gather; people from Virtue, Freedom, Triumph, and all the other servers that were once separate is all in one place. People that never use to socialize because they were in another server may now do so.

I don't know, I just personally feel Unity is the most traditional and fitting. That's just my opinion. XD

On that note, I do like Sunrise. And I do understand the meaning behind it.

All the excitement!

Yes, but that's not set in stone. We had to have something in there for release; it can always be changed later.

Another handy thing about the whoson list (available from your chatbox) is it gives you an idea of how many people are online across the paragon chat channel.

Maybe get a list of all the suggestions, have the community vote and see which name comes out with the most votes, or do the voting in stages. Two names face off against each other until we're down to just two names then see which one comes out the community favourite. Just an idea!

Or CW & Leo pick one themselves  :roll:
