The name change will probably take place but i really hate the name 'Warzone'

suggestions?

(btw Fizzer is looking for a name for marketing purposes so it would be better if we could get one thats high up in the google search engine but more original)

War Elite
several things in its favor
1) It represents what the game is about
2) It sounds similar to war light
3) It isn't the name of other not nearly as good games/songs/movies etc.
4) It's unique (see above)
5) It sounds like it might actually be a game grown ups play

For the record I think the name is terrible, but will not threaten to leave the game because of a stupid (see very) name change. I'll just be a little sadder and keep playing.

I saw this shitty pop-up ad for a tank game the other day called "Warzone." We must stop at nothing to ensure that Warlight doesn't end up as "WarZone" and have its identity mistaken with run-of-the-mill preteen MMOs.

Thomas, are you blind or an idiot? Or are you both?

"Later this year, WarLight will become known as Warzone, with its new address being Warzone.com." - From the blog.

Meaning the name change hasn't happened yet and the site hasn't been search optimized with Google yet.

"First off, to those citing that "Googling Warzone doesn't find us" -- trust me, it will. I expect that, eventually, Googling for Warzone will return us as the top link and also be filled with links about us across the first page. If this doesn't happen for some reason, we'd definitely fix it." - Fizzer from the Logo Design Contest topic on page three.

Fizzer affirms that it hasn't been search optimized yet. If it doesn't become optimal, then he will fix it with Google, which you can do.

Stop being an idiot and confusing people.

We aren't search optimized as warzone yet, because we haven't even fully switched to that domain yet.

You can spend your time better by not slamming randomly on your keys and thinking you're making a point.

WarTactics sounds tons better than warzone.
still more generic than warlight imho, but not as generic smash your face as warzone...

War Elite.. the game is not about the elite.. only *some players* make it about the elite... thinking it's only about the elitism kind of takes away from the game, imho...

Considering you're constantly whining about an issue that doesn't exist, despite being told it doesn't exist several times... yeah my opinion of you has tanked.

When it comes to names, I don't think the war prefix really fits this game. I brainstormed for quite a long time, and it is actually hard to think of a name that fits this game AND is marketable. Warzone definitely doesn't fit this game, but it's so easy to market with. Also I didn't want to put "Risk" in the name because that could hit some copyright laws.

Perhaps think of a name that doesn't have war nor light in it instead of restricting yourselves to thinking of only War____

That's because it's a redirect.

Type in Warzone, see what happens.

See how the description still says WarLight? Why are you guys arguing that we've made the domain change when the owner of the game has posted saying we haven't? Why are you guys arguing that Warzone is a bad name because it's not search optimized, when the owner of the game has pointed out he hasn't search optimized the name yet because the domain change hasn't happened?

Also redirect =/= total domain change. Typing in warlight.net will not redirect you to warzone.com, so warlight.net is still the domain.

it also sounds adorable and manchildish.
