Seriously? you want to boil every problem in the game leading to declining numbers to people complaining about a name that has been known for only a couple days?

If every person on the internet was mature enough to treat the name as just a name, i'd agree with you. But this is the internet.

Considering this probably took only a few minutes to change, I'd consider it worthwhile to stop this from devolving into nonsense. Now we can look back at these last couple days and laugh at the name that almost was (like Jedi Wizard...)

Something I think is worth keeping in mind about how the change was presented. Consider what sounds better

"We changed the name as some people may find it offensive..." (moral high ground)

"We created a dumb name and realized our little joke fell flat..." (admitting to a mistake without any qualification or spin doctoring)

Considering this game has FAR more offensive content in it than Hot Prospect, which do you think is the actual reason the name changed?

Thank you for the Name change. Was not a fan of that name.

Nice to have one that is at least named like the other servers. (SWTOR based)

Specifically, that phrase could be taken in slang terms to be derogatory towards certain individuals. Individuals as in the general term or specifc? 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. Sarcastic baloney!

You guys were laughing in the break room before... and you're laughing in the break room now!

I am glad the Dev's were listening. Hot Prospect was turning into quite the derogatory slang in conversations on forums and in fleet chat. Not speaking up and standing up for what you believe in, you will fall for anything. Lesson learned. Going forward I am honored to know that Harbinger will now be called Satele Shan.
