Its still not clear..Why specifically would that server name be offensive? I agree with the no bullying stance, but I would like to told nevertheless.

Same here. I see zero offensiveness about this what so ever. Some people are offended about everything, seeing offensiveness where there is none.

Thank you, Eric. As much as I ride the dev team, this time they have done the right thing. Please pass my thanks to them as well.

My thanks to the ones who made the change. For me, not only did Hot Prospect sound like something you would call a dedicated ERP server, it also just felt so much less dignified than any of the other server names.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
(If this game has taught me anything, it's the incredible immaturity, bitterness, and selfishness of a sadly large segment of the MMO and Star Wars communities.)

Nerds equate the word "hot" with women, so the "Hot Prospect" is obviously a promiscuous woman. Now the server is named Satele Shan. Big improvement.

Gotta protect the nerds from themselves.

"The Hot Prospect", sounds like a stripper bar. That doesn't bother me so much but I can see where it would be considered Vulgar by some. Apparently B.W. decided to play it safe and change that name. Satele Shan is a great Name; Shan, a classic name from the games KOTOR past and Its a Big Name here, Plus its Not another Sith/Empire named server. I coulda got over it Mostly and just called'em "Hot Pockets".

Awesome! When I was wondering why two servers were named after sith lords, Satele Shan was exactly the name I imagined would be great for a server named after a Republic character.

I am a bit surprised by the change so soon after you assured us in the dev stream that it would be too hard, but ultimately I have to praise you for working to overcome whatever limitations were there.

So, ONLY SWTOR players would find a way to demean/sexualize something? Have you seen the rest of the internet? I'm pretty sure a large number of people who do not play SWTOR would also find a way.

To be honest though, I never thought it was a bad name. It didn't really seem to fit with the other new server names but I didn't think it was horrible.
