Hey folks,

We have made the decision to rename The Hot Prospect server to Satele Shan. Since we announced the new server names, we have received some concerns from people regarding the name The Hot Prospect. Specifically, that phrase could be taken in slang terms to be derogatory towards certain individuals. We take this very seriously as we would never want to create a situation where someone is made uncomfortable by something such as a server name.

We will be updating all of our communications (such as the FAQ and blog) to reflect the new name in the coming days. Thank you for your understanding.

lol, so what was all that "We can't change it now, it would be too hard" about in the stream? Either way, thanks. I wasn't all that thrilled about the name, and it was kind of depressing to read people actually planning to transfer away from the server just because of the name. I like Satele Shan alot better - not the most creative choice, but better.

To counter...it's good that you listened on this. It was apparently a real sticking point with some and I'm sure they'll be happy to see that it's no longer an issue.

But...I'll bet that now there will be shouting for Darth Marr!

That server name went from zero to hero (literally) in twelve parsecs!
Vanguard... "I'm on point!"

While I will be playing on the Darth Malgus mainly, I am very happy to see you guys have adressed the concerns of the people fearing what the name Hot Prospect might do. I think Satele Shan is a brilliant name and it gives me hope that you will also listen to the concerns of the RP community and take the right steps to ensure RP can happen publically safely and without trolls
There are three things I want to see in this game: the choice to return to our original factions, a lot more class story background flavouring in the narrative and Acina's eye colour as an appearance customization option.
Here is my referral link. Click it and we'll both get nice things!
