We've tried petitioning and its not going to work. Do you like the game for its name or for its content?

The problem is he doesn't own the www.warlight.com domain, someone else does and they won't sell it. So he has to change the name. While I agree Warzone isn't a good name for the game, he at least can own the .com domain that way.

Yes Lolowut, but there is no real problem with keeping a .net domain. I don't understand why the website needs to shift to a .com domain. The search engines list Warlight highest now and the name has a ring to it.

After the name change, I'm still going to refer to this game as WarLight.

Personally, I agree that Warzone is a terrible name and the game should continue to be called Warlight.

However, that being said, I've never yet seen Fizzer back down when he's decided to change something and if he hasn't changed his mind yet he's probably not going to.

I don't understand why everyone is harsh on Fizzer.
yes, I agree that warzone is not an original game, and of course I prefer "warlight".
but who cares about the name?
Fizzer isn't changing the name because he thinks "warzone" is a better name (if that was the reason, I would understand all these petitions), but for marketing reasons, like lolowut explained. the game will remain perfect as it is. this is just a stupid name. Fizzer should do whatever will help warlight grow. if this new name will do that, so be it.

This is too late. What all those who are complaining should have done long ago, instead of crying about why "warlight" is a perfect name that shouldn't be changed, was to suggest a better name. Then Fizzer would listen to you.

To be fair, there was a huge outcry against the change when it was first announced. Most people gave up though when they realized Fizzer was still going to make the change anyways.

We would suggest a better name, but Fizzer has never given us the chance to. He never asked the community, he didn't even give us a choice.
If we had known it was an issue and the name would have to be changed, we would have helped decide and set up polls etc.

My main problem with the name change is that if, like Fizzer wishes, it creates more revenue and players, that this game in it's current state will turn into a trolls paradise which will effectively kill off the players that enjoy playing now. There is no regulation on the forums or other things that go on.

Read what I wrote after. Of course he was going to change, because he NEEDS this change. He said that many times. He said he would love to keep it "warlight" but the .com is already taken and the one who has it won't sell it to him (read what lolowut said). The name change is for marketing reasons.
So instead of complaining that the name is being changed, you should have suggested a better name. Pretty sure it's too late by now though.

If that were done, what would stop people from purchasing those domain names, too? Then Fizzer would have been right back at square one. Less so, actually, because all the good names would have already been taken by people trying to make a buck.

will turn into a trolls paradise


You are using the future tense?

Never accept an asshole. It'll make your experience 100% worse. if Warlight becomes more troll like than it is, I can see a lot of the sensible people leaving. I hope people enjoy Pooncrew, as that is what I am talking about, children like that taking over this game.

Regulation people, it isn't hard. 2 Mods and this game would improve 10x. Then the new name change wouldn't be so much of an issue.

Everyone who types in www.warlight.com instead of www.warlight.net is going to be sent to the wrong site. .com is the most popular domain on the web. How do you not see the real problem with having only .net? This is a business now, it's not just a risk site that we all enjoy. If Fizzer is truly going to shift over to the business side, this is a change he has to make. The search engines listing warlight highest is a moot point. It will list whatever name Fizzer changes to as highest once he switches over to that domain.

If you are worried about all the troll clans and trolls becoming a problem, we could always just not play with them. Tighten control on clans, and play games between/with other respected clans. Post topics on your own forums, and contact clan leaders if you wish to say something to another clan.

Why not petition something that can actually get changed. Like Poon Crews member and clan name.

Its gonna be going to Warzone and nothings gonna change that.

lol I just said on one of their threads that they need to grow up before people start petitions against them. Nice to know I'm not mad and other people have thought about this :).

also, mods wreck forums


It only "wrecks" forums for those who want to break the rules and act like kids. If you've had your forum experience ruined by mods in the past, maybe you should check yourself.

for example forza forum tends to not let you post stuff that supports GT, which is just commercial bias

I understand that you need some forum management, but mods are a bad idea

Also, if there is a forum mod he will almost certainly be from America which will not go down well for us British when we use sarcasm.

The only way to stop WarLingt becoming warzone is for someone to find the owner of warzone.com and outbid Fizzer, but this is going further than I think is worth.

I still don't care. It won't change my experience on here at all. I said this in the other thread, there are better sounding names IMO, but perhaps those domains were not available either.

In the end, who cares? We'll adjust to the name quickly I think. I would much rather spend energy on the items I care about:

more invite lists (clan, friends, all, etc)
team chat in solo game (for making notes in game)
3v3 europe ladder
tournament filters
tournament/forums in mobile app
clan rankings
clan ladders
weighted random move order
filter orders by player (helps a lot in big games)
forum mod functions (like combining threads)
...

There are a LOT of things I care more about than the name here.

for all who state that "this i just a name"

the name is vey importatnt, because now i can tell my friend or people at work that I am playing warlight form time to time and that this is an elaborated strategic game.

but soon I will have to tell them (as it would be clearly visible on the computer screen) that I am playing sth called "warzone" and then i would have to explain them that this isnt another game for 10-years old kids, it is only named in so dumb. In other words - soon I ll be ashamed that i am playing sth called "warzone". I dont know Fizzer how old are you, but clearly this name is childish and it sucks and it is obvious for most people around here that this name is good for some farmsimulatorstyle game, but not for warlight.

If you really had to chnge the name, you could ask the community, aor even make a contest for a new name, I am sure that there would be dozens of cool names

WARZONE isnt cool
WARZONE isnt good
WARZONE is dumb name
WARZONE is sth to be ashame of

This is warlight style:


And this is warzone style



Fizzer, do you really want to atract such kind of gamers here?

cause now, as MrCherry has already said, you are preparing a trolls paradise for us
