I personally think a name change is a bad idea, unless there are done other underlying reasons that you didn't go into in the blog post. You've already gotten exposure with this name, and I think rebranding would set you back.
A logo change is something I can get behind though.
i like the idea of a logo, but the name change might not be such a good idea, i think. On the plus side, I might be able to trick people into playing here again if they think warlight is a different game... lol
Red white and blue are popular colors because they psychologically affect people in a positive way for businesses. Those are the 3 colors that should be used, and you'll notice almost every company logo typically has one if not all 3 of these colors.
Personally I'll take a crack at designing a red and white logo.
warzone sounds like an fps or tanks game, can't say i like the name change announcement. but well, it's your game, call it xptz48 for all i care, as long as i can still play it the same way as before.
was about to comment on the blog post but the captcha image doesnt show up on my browser (mac, chrome), i was assuming it got eaten by an adblocker but i don't have any extensions installed at all, you might want to look into that.
This is pretty much a terrible decision. This game, regardless of how the name of it came to be...or what it means to you (the creator), has grown into its own branding. A huge part of that branding is in its name. It seems to me to be a vanity decision and one that doesn't serve to benefit the game itself in any capacity whatsoever, but does run a risk of hurting the game. Personally, if this were my baby, I wouldn't go changing around what already works. The game is definitely maturing into its name...the name isn't the thing that needs to mature.
In fact, we, the players, could have gone on forever without ever knowing why this game is named what it is. The backstory is appreciated, but if backstory is the entire basis of making a potentially risky change in how this game is branded...I'd say you haven't really thought it through then.
