Unless it IS changed -- I am going to Star Forge --
I will give it some time, but if we turn into a troll server, or the theme of jokes, I am going to transfer ..... ( only have 4 toons, so while not cheap, not as expensive as it could be)

I agree the name should be changed or our server won't be taken seriously. I know the name is supposed to come from lore, but it is so obscure that 99% of people aren't going to realize that. And it will have to be explained every single time someone asks the question, where'd your server get such a stupid name?

I cannot even seriously see myself inviting a new player to the game and telling them to join my server so they can play with me, and by the way it's the one called "The Hot Prospect". It also doesn't help that this term sounds a lot like some kind of sexual joke.

According to a certain podcaster I listen to, the method the dev's used to devise this name basically started as a joke in the office and everyone kept voting on it just for laughs. So apparently this is all just an inside joke they get to privately laugh about at our expense, while we get stuck with a stupid named server for years. Way to disrespect your players, guys, so we will always get laughed at for your personal entertainment. Not cool.

Thank goodness they came to their sense.

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.
