R13 Name - VOTE!

Thankyou to everyone who submitted a name for Round 13. I got more than 215 e-mails with suggestions in, which added up to a whopping 656 names (although some of these were duplicates)

The full list has now been scrutinised, deliberated over and had pins stuck in it by our expert panel of judges, who were asked to choose up to 10 names which struck them as being good names for the round.

However, this has only whittled the list down to 8 names. The poll above will decide the name of the round. You can vote for one name only, so please think about it before choosing.

The poll is open for 4 days from posting.


Previous Round Names:
Round 1 - The Beginning
Round 2 - The Struggle for Power
Round 3 - The New Dawn
Round 4 - The Tides of War
Round 5 - The Price of Freedom
Round 6 - First Encounters
Round 7 - Critical Diplomacy
Round 8 - Final Legacy
Round 9 - Redemption
Round 10 - Genesis
Round 11 - A Legend Reborn
Round 12 - The Edge of Darkness

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

Some of these are very inspired, but some of them are just dull.
"The Gathering of Power"? Sounds like someone read "The Struggle for Power" and plumped for the safe option. However, generic appeal will always be popular, much to the chargrin of uppity snobs like me :/

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

Now, let us all think for a moment. What is a phoenix? Ah yes, the fire-bird, which when it dies lays an egg. When it hatches, the bird is born again. Phoenix means to be reborn, or in the matter of PA to be able to fight on after being slaughtered once, twice, thrice etc.

Personally I liked The Illusion of Truth (the rest of my prefered ones didn't make it to the final poll). As Fyodor says, PA politics is just that. And those of you who whine about crap names: There were 650 or so names given to A2, and lots and lots again were utter crap, for example "Come play planetarion round 13 with a bunch of geeks :-)" and "isn't 13 bad or something?".

I'm afraid I must agree, some of the names just don't fit a round imo, there are some very good ones in there however, I personally prefer illision of truth, fits the political scene of last round, but then again maybe not of next Ah well, gathering of power also sounds good, and hopefully (and looks like) fits r13 as PA is on the uprise again.

it would be easier to pick a name if we knew some stats or ANY info about the game. this arbitrary round naming is lame. the name will probably have nothing to do with the actual game.

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

you know, come to think of it, although voted the gathering of power, the name illusion of truth, like fyodor said, fits the very deceiving nature of the turbulent planetarion politics.. i like the illusion of truth and hope that anyone who hasnt voted yet, wont waste theyre vote on something silly like Moonlight on the sea of waaaaaarrrrrrr!!!!!!! or some crap.. heh

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

hmm, i feel that "moonlight on the sea of war" is clever
however, "rejection of mercy", how immense does that sound, that got my vote
illusion of truth is very good as that is what pa politcs are afterall lol
and the "fight for survival" is good, but just doesn't sound original

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

"Ships in the night" is by far the most fitting name.
If PA is about anything, it's about loosing sleep because of incomings in the middle of the night.
In fact, "Ships in the NIght" should be the new name of the entire game.

tbh anythig is better than the common "the blabla of blabla" scheme.

can't you at least make it "illusion of truth" or "fight for suvival" without the "the" in front? sounds infinitely less dull imo.

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

There is ONLY one good name for round 13. As Kal mentioned in an earlier announcment about battle in round 13:

"Round 13 will see an evolution in race combat with one of the races receiving a major upgrade and reviving past technologies in a new and exciting way. As divisions between the races of the universe grow wider the battle for supremacy can only grow stronger. Recent battles have been calm in comparison to the devastation of wars of old. Forget all you know about battles from Round 12, and prepare for unashamed carnage in Round 13!"

.....PREPARE FOR UNASHAMED CARNAGE IN ROUND 13!


With that being said, the ONLY good name for round 13 is: The Rejection of Mercy.

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

Jaro that works both ways, that can also mean 'The Fight for Survival' also.

Jeez the name I suggested "Phoenix Wars" keeps getting trashed lol. Oh well I wasnt that fond of it myself. In response to the only terran crack no thats not what it meant. What was meant is that, after a Phoenix dies it is reborn from its ashes which is very much what this game is all about. Every time I play I see people who get messed up real bad in some cases loose the vast majority of their fleet in an attack. But always they return stronger just like a phoenix, which is why I submitted the idea. The name is a bit cliche I must admit.

can't you at least make it "illusion of truth" or "fight for suvival" without the "the" in front? sounds infinitely less dull imo.
good point, i for one actually agree with this situation

i so voted for illusion of truth...good choice i think..some of the othre names are pretty good also, it was a close call but ive got to agree, the PA politics of many alliances and the way many things are run by people (not the pa team - the n00bs) fits the name...it should show r13 to be an interesting round, i cant wait to start bashing Xans

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

shame Fight for Survival didn't win.. i'd sent that one in as soon as the name comp opened

However well done to the winner. "Illusion of Truth" sounds good.

Comon PA.. Who got that gem in first?

P.S. For the speedgames at the end of the round could we have them named according to the other names or would that be over complicating things?

Is 'The Illusion of Truth' supposed to be ironic?

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

Yes, The Illusion of Truth is an ironic title.
Its my take on politics, and to some degree how similiar it is to R5 thru R8 politics. I was on the darkside then and learned how to hide in the early part of a round. For me, I see these 'new' names joining alliances and I can't help but think, Who are they really?
So, the truth is out there. Can we determine the truth? Or will certain alliances "pull the wool" over our eyes again, and run away with it?
Let us all endeavor to break through the illusions, and find the truth. For the betterment of our own alliances and a more balanced round.

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

i cant understand how some of those names made it up there aye. I'm impressed with a couple, but cmon guys ships in the night? its like space there isnt even like night... and even better is moonlight on the sea of war... ok it kinda sounds okay if you were the one to make it up but its just not PA, nor does it fit with the other names. Fight for survival could have been put forward like 100 times by a whole lot of 8 year olds but i reckon rejection of mercy sounds coolest. w00t for whoever came up with that one

Re: R13 Name - VOTE!

i think mercy would have been my second choice... i found it hard to choose between that and illusion...

as for ships in the night, as was said above, a lot of PA action takes place at night for most players

Yep I know the true meaning of the word
I like the idea of pheonixes but still dont get why they named a weak co after it which dies and stays dead coz no one buys them anymore hehe
But if it wasnt for the name of the ship it would have been a cool name
