I really can't imagine calling CU anything else. I always liked the meaning of the name, but now, with the logo and art and videos the name literally brings a brand to life in my head.

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    I would prefer a new game title without "Camelot" to try and separate itself from the DAOC franchise.

    I never considered Camelot to be IN chains, in the first place.  It's like saying, "Captain America: Unmasked!"  (I hope that's a decent analogy... did Captain America ever wear a mask?  I'm not a comic book fan!)

    He wore a half-mask from the upper nose and over his head.

     

    ..But it was more of a pull-over hood that was part of his costume.  His eyes, and lower face were exposed.

    Personally I don't care what they name it. I just hope it funds.

    Its starting to seem like it wont fund and I'm starting to get very sad. This is the only game concept I've been excited about in years, an if this game doesn't fund I think I'm just going to give up on the Genre.

    If I was a rich guy I would honestly just kick in the $700,000 remining myself. I know it would be money well spent, it would make myself and many others very happy.

    I guess this game just proves to the world that the almighty dollar bill is god. Whoever has the money calls the shots, and whoever doesn't just lives int he rich man's world as a slave.

    Please let me win the powerball so I can fund the rest of this game.

    I think they'll change the name, and probably should, it was only ever a working title to begin with.

     

    Maybe they should keep some connection to Camelot in the name because of the connections to Arthurian lore, but the "Unchained" bit in particular really should go.  It feels sort of tacky to be honest.  Like when Age of Conan "rereleased" as F2P with the name AOC: Unchained.

     

    What does "unchained" even mean in this context?  Its either trying to hard to be "cool" or its meta humor, and not really descriptive of the game.  With CU this fantasy world has undergone a nearly extinction level apocalypse like event.  What exactly does that make it "unchained" from?

     

    I imagine they'll end up going with something more lore related once they firm up all the background details of the setting.

    I give the same answer every time this topic comes up: It is not a good name for a game.

    First of all, it references an older game it is trying to separate itself from as it is not a sequel. Secondly, it gives undue attention to one realm, the Arthurians from Camelot, so it is not a very inclusive name, Thirdly, the name does nothing to really describe its gameplay and means nothing to those who do not already know about Dark Age of Camelot.

    There are much better names out there and I cannot wait to see what CSE picks.

    MJ claims that BSC = Bat Sh#% Crazy but I think it is an acronym for the eventual title of CU that he already knows.  Here are a few of my guesses…

    • Black Scar Cerpant
    • Beyond Sorrows Clench
    • Building Summers Citadel
    • Burning Summers Castles*
    • Blistering Scale Crawler
    • Burning Scale Creature

    *My personal favorite

    I think I may be on to something here…what do you think?
